The next three days will see the Baltic Triangle taken over by a plethora of art and music delights and Threshold welcomes you with open arms…

With a focus on fresh, creative talent from around the North-West, Threshold provides an ideal platform for experimentation, and with this year’s Retro-futuristic theme the festival has plenty of exciting and up-and-coming acts on board.

Expect everything and anything from emerging artists, new work, collaboration, DIY, avant garde and community based projects encompassing music, theatre, film, performance and visual arts.

The festival is based across some of the most exciting newly developed and underused spaces in the city, including The Baltic Social, Lantern Liverpool, The Nordic Church and Siren. Each venue has its own line-up with headliners across the weekend including Natalie McCool, The Destroyers, Gideon Conn and Dub Mafia.

Visual arts offerings will also furnish each location – Visions of the future imagined in the 50s and 60s will take on various forms in an exhibition entitled ‘FUTURE | VISIONS’ with contributions from 2012 Liverpool Art Prize winner and Threshold veteran Robyn Woolston along with a range of exciting artists, including Baltic Triangle residents as well as creative minds from further afield.

And, if you’ve got your mum in town for Mother’s Day and not sure where to take her (or have forgotten to buy her something), Threshold’s got it covered.  Unit 51 have got the perfect day lined up – An abundance of culinary treats from Wirral based Farm Feast, musical amusements provided by Mellowtone with sets from Dominic Dunn, Beaten Tracks DJs, James Munro and many more, all topped off with massages from the magical hands at Seel Street Massage.
