This is a great local festival held each year in New Milton and it has expanded so much in the last few years.
I last went to this festival a few years ago when it was a one day event, there was a scattering of stalls and just a few stages.
However, this year it is running for two days and has 4 stages, including the ska stage, all mixed up, blues stage and the main “bigger boat” stage.
Previous acts have included the Brit nominated artist, Rumer and this year the line up is just as exciting.
Acts confirmed include: Crescendi, Fearne and previously reviewed Lonely Dakota ( previously known as 6 minutes to sunrise) as well as many other local acts.
This is set to be a fantastic weekend and with a weekend ticket including camping only costing £35 it is sure to be a packed out event.

Before I go any further, I will admit, I am not the biggest rock fan. As you may be able to tell from my blog, the main genres I enjoy listening to are acoustic, pop and indie. But, that’s not to say I don’t enjoy listening to rock music sometimes.So, takedown for me was not only a music festival but a further insight into the world of rock and metal, and wow was it music overload but for all the right reasons.

As you may know from previous posts, one thing I really enjoy being able to do is promote local music. This time I can go one better!
On 15th March, Southampton University will be host to Takedown Festival 2014.
This event is host not only to well know bands such as Kids in Glass Houses and Funeral for a Friend but also to many local bands such as 6 Minutes to Sunrise, who I have previously reviewed and Seasons in Wreckage who are based in Portsmouth.
Doors open at 13:30 and there will be lots more bands playing throughout the day.
Tickets are available through the official website (www.takedownfestival.co.uk)
So, if you want a day filled with good music, both on a local and national level, what are you waiting for?
It may only be February, but 6 Minutes to Sunrise are already set to take 2014 by storm. Having recently supported bands including; Max Raptor, We are Fiction and Attention Thieves, they came back to perform once again at the Joiners to support Lonely the Brave.
The band has previously played to a sold out crowd at the Joiners so they are no stranger to this venue or a large audience; this is clearly evident through the band’s stage presence, and the lead singer, Cameron’ charisma and energy throughout the gig which helped captivate the audience.

One thing I really enjoy being able to do on this blog is promoting local bands and artists. If you listen to a great local band, it is that much better than someone from a different area, in my opinion. It makes you like your city that little bit more as you know that at the very least it produces some decent music. This is certainly something 6 Minutes to Sunrise did for me.
