Threshold Festival of Music & Arts is back for 2020, marking a decade of yearly events and their final outing!
Taking place on April 3rd and 4th in venues across the Baltic Triangle district of the city, the swan song of Threshold will be a forward-thinking celebration that aims to leave an open-ended question and place the baton in the hands of the community it has served. The festival launched in 2011 as a platform for grass-roots music and arts in the city, region and further afield, and has grown up with the emerging Baltic Triangle. In its 10-year history the festival has seen formative performances from Liverpool success stories such as Stealing Sheep, All We Are, Chelsea Grimes and Queen Zee.
In addition to being a musical platform the festival has championed visual and performance art as well as hosting annual panels and key note speakers. The ‘artist to industry’ focus of the event has led to the festival being hugely popular and a favourite with musicians, promoters, venues and audiences. Moving on from the annual festival format, Threshold will remain an active force in the city as a resource for music and arts and a producer of special events locally and across the UK. As with previous years, the direction of Threshold’s future will be put to the community themselves with a day of panels and discussions.
Venues for the 2020 event are yet to be announced, however audiences and participants can expect a selection of the usual suspects who have hosted the festival over the years, plus some new stages in the still constantly evolving creative quarter of the Baltic.
