“Threshold Festival” Fri 8th March- at the Baltic Triangle…….
Liverpool’s Threshold festival is back bringing more bands with bigger and better art installations.
This irrepressible young festival will once more run amok all over the Liverpool Baltic Triangle taking in a great many of the city’s best loved venues.
This favourite Multi-Arts Festival with three days of treats pouring out of Camp and Furnace, The Picket, Elevator Bar and the many Baltic Creative venues, will have an additional two afternoon fringe festival FREE at the Albert Dock.
This multi-venue, grass-roots festival has a programme packed full of goodness with over 180 performances and artists geared up to give you Alternative, Electronic, Folk, Hip-Hop, Metal,Pop/Commercial, Punk, Reggae, RnB and Ska.
Right from the start, Threshold’s ethos has been to engage with the arts, music and performance promoters, and provide them with a platform to create and explore.
With a line-up featuring Frances Wood, Natalie McCool, Dominic Dunn, Robert Vincent, beans on toast, and Paddy Steer, the scene looks good.
On the Mainstage in Camp and Furnace, the line -up is JC Villafan from LA as part of his European tour and a Soul inspired hypnotic Coffee and Cakes For funerals who were named repeatedly as a band to watch this year.
On installations, the festival has never had better. Speaking to the wonderful Liverpool Art Prize winner Robyn Woolston, she tells me that she will be returning with a new, top secret installation ahead of her forthcoming exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery.
Artists Charles and Sam will create a bespoke exhibition which they describe as “echoing Arnold van Gennap’s tripartite concept of liminality” Yes, well, maybe the Egg Cafe will enlighten you with some interactive moveable art walls and the brilliant Pam Sullivan returns with revisits showing her triumphant Biennial piece Unterschlupf from last years St Lukes Church.
If you know the Camp and Furnace area then be prepared for a shock as a superb forest of found items will be created with a tunnel through which festival goers will travel from the Camp to the Blade Factory.
This will be a mega event of escapism, transformation, and collaboration this weekend……be there and get involved but above all enjoy!
