Threshold V

Threshold Festival – Five years going strong!

Threshold saw its fifth year of the three day grass roots music and arts festival in the Baltic triangle. The focus of the festival is grassroots music, visual arts and performance. You won’t get the usual Liverpool bands; it’s something different and a good opportunity for creative people to collaborate on projects.

Some of the best bits we got to see:

Resident bar The Baltic social hosted one of our resident bands, the Mono L.Ps as their headline act on Friday night. We caught The Fire Beneath the Sea and the AMAZING Nubian Twist in the observatory on Friday night as well.

Back to the Observatory on Saturday for Mersey Wylie and the Soul Rays. In and out of unit 51 all evening for the Astral Coast stage, then on to 24 Kitchen Street for some hipster dancing.

Sunday was Art Day! We went to check out ‘The Where’s my horse’ exhibition, a collection of amazing work from Tim Devas, in resident art studio Ninety Squared. We then spent the afternoon in the Liverpool Craft beer space. Sunday evening we had a windy time watching the brilliant Seafoam Green in Constellations then warmed up back at the astral coast stage in Baltic Creatives unit 51 Cafe, where we watched the fabulous Black Mountain Lights.

Despite the windy wet weather we had a brilliant time, well worth the £20 for a three day ticket. BARGAIN… except for all the money we spent on beer!
