The South’s favourite independent alternative-rock and metal festival - TAKEDOWN - will return on Saturday 8th April 2023.

After an 8 year hiatus, the legendary one-day fest is making a comeback with a mind-blowing lineup, a new venue and an outdoor stage added for the first time. Moving from its Southampton University roots to the larger Portsmouth Guildhall, Takedown 2023 promises a full-day of the best alternative around with over 30 bands performing across five stages.

Topping the festival’s stellar line-up are two impressive headliners: anonymous masked rock collective SLEEP TOKEN who will be delivering their *First Festival Appearance* of 2023, and, one of the most devastating and enthralling live bands on the planet, SKINDRED.

Joining them will be a whole host of electrifying acts including Loathe, Jamie Lenman, Punk Rock Factory, InMe, Palm Reader, Our Hollow Our Home, As December Falls, CLTDRP, Fearless Vampire Killers, The Bottom Line, Seething Akira, and Dendera.

Alongside the names outlined in the initial announcement, Takedown has also added waves of new acts to the bill, with mighty bonus additions also including Red Method, Autumn Fires, Slackrr, Saint Agnes, False Hope For The Savage, Shell Beach, Chaosbay, Balance Breach, Consvmer, Elwood Stray, Sunfall, Ithaca, Confessions of a Traitor, Heart of a Coward, Asleep At The Helm, Royals, Lightwave, Crushed By Waves, Meg Emelie, Defences, Two Year Break, Chuggaboom, Black Water County and THECITYISOURS.

With the Takedown 2023 line-up now complete, the full set times for all of the bands playing across its 5 Stages have also been confirmed and can be found listed below. Start planning your day now…
