After careful consideration, we regret to announce the postponement of this year’s Takedown Festival due to take place at Portsmouth Guildhall on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April.

Building works currently being undertaken at the Grade II listed venue to transform the basement of the Guildhall into one of the most innovative creative spaces for young people in the country have now been extended across the festival dates, resulting in the loss of two key areas of the festival site and a reduction in capacity, which combined with challenging trading conditions have sadly left the event unviable for this year.

Takedown Festival will return in 2025 with, it is hoped, much of this year’s line-up carried forward. We are currently in talks with all of the bands to see if this is possible for them. Until we are in a position to confirm any details we have decided that all ticket holders will be refunded by their point of purchase.  

We sincerely apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused and thank you in advance for your continued support of Takedown Festival into 2025.

we will be back!
