The story of Takedown Festival is a truly inspiring one. Once a small annual gig in Salisbury that has now become a staplepoint in the calender of alternative music in the south. Adding what is sure to be another glourious chapter to this story, the festival returns to its newer home in the halls of Southampton University for the 4th year running.
With the full line now announced its clear this will be one of the more unique events in the festivals history. Firstly, are headliners Mallory Knox making a return to the festival after a one year absence as the main attraction fully graduating from openers as they were when they first played the stage. Following suite of a popular trend at festivals in recent years, Takedown 2015 will also see InMe playing their debut album Overgrown Eden in full, a show which has proven so popular they’ve reissued the album with tracks from the performance.
However, in an announcement that probably stuck out more than others, it was revealed that this year Fearless Vampire Killers have been given control of an entire stage to name and fill up with whatever acts they pick. The newly dubbed Obsidian Stage will have FVK headlining and preceeded by old and new additions to the festival; DEAD, Ashestoangels, Ugly Love, Colt 45, City of Ashes and Miss Vincent.
And to think all this is just a minor fraction of the entire spectical awaiting lucky attendees in March where the festival will cater a day of over 35 acts of fine alternative and metal music while popular party troupe UPRAWR will once again be hosting the afterparty at the students’ union club.
