Threshold Festival is back for the second year from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th February, and with the closure of the CUC has spread its wings across venues old and new inside the Baltic (Love) Triangle, and a little further beyond.
Liverpool Acoustic is taking part again, and will be bringing the Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon to Elevator Bar and Cafe from 2pm to 7pm on Saturday 11th February. We’ll tell you more about that in a future news item, along with a special Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight show, but if you really can’t wait then visit our facebook event page to find out more.
Day and Weekend tickets for Threshold can be bought from tiny.cc/threshold12tickets
First off – congratulations are in order after an amazing debut festival in February 2011 and of course on getting married last year! How have things been going in the run up to Threshold 2012?
After hosting Threshold 2011 and a whole host of other great events, it was disheartening to hear that the Liverpool CUC (Contemporary Urban Centre) is closing at the start of this year. As you had originally planned this year’s festival there, what challenges have you faced in making sure the show still goes on?
The festival runs from 10th – 12th February, often a quiet month for gigs and events, yet last year the event was packed out for almost all of the time. What have you got on offer that will bring in the crowds this year?
Liverpool’s music scene is a hot-bed of new acts across a wide range of music and you again have an impressive number of bands and solo artists showcasing their wares this year. Who stood out last year and what acts should we be looking out for at Threshold 2012?
But it’s not just about the muso’s, right…?
So, something for everyone by the sound of it! How much are tickets?
In advance they’re a bargain £25 for the weekend or £10 for the day, it will be more on the door, so get your tickets early!
Fantastic! Well, I guess you both have a lot to do in preparation for Threshold but where can people find out more about the event?
