Preview: Takedown Festival 2012

By on Tuesday, 7th February 2012 at 9:00 am

Since taking a hiatus last year, the south of England’s spring-time smashfest is returning with a veritable highlight reel of hardcore. Takedown Festival is back to reclaim Southampton University for the masses of heavy music fans on Sunday 18 March with four stages of nothing but mayhem.

Headlining the day-long extravaganza are the titans of ragga-metal Skindred (pictured above), who won a Metal Hammer Golden God for the Best Live Band last year. Joining the Newport noisemakers are over 30 bands spread across four stages including the angsty Norfolk lads Deaf Havana, the punky part animals Lower Than Atlantis and local boys Bury Tomorrow. The crème of upcoming metal and hardcore also take over the lineup in the guise of Mallory Knox, Feed The Rhino, The James Cleaver Quintet and Heights. TGTF faves Fei Comodo will also be setting the south alight with their post-hardcore antics.

Tickets are priced at £22.50 for the all day festival to those aged 14 years and older. The festival has a limited capacity, so snap up the tickets quick as more fantastic bands are being announced soon! Buy them at Seetickets; to find out more information on Takedown, go here. TGTF hopes to see you in the pit!
