The festival moved from its Southampton University roots to the larger Portsmouth Guildhall to become one of the biggest rock events in the festival calendar once again. Takedown Festival’s comeback is part of a new partnership between Divergent Festivals and The Guildhall Trust.

The incredible return for Takedown Festival has been topped off having now been nominated for Best Small Festival, Best Metropolitan Festival and the Grassroots Festival Awards at 2023's UK Festival Awards.
