Try keeping us away from Threshold Festival (not much chance of that happening!). We’re back with another Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon on Saturday 29th March 2014 and we’ve got ten acts performing between 2.00pm and 7.00pm.
We can exclusively reveal that our lineup for this year is:-
We’re in our regular Threshold venue of The Baltic Social (formally Elevator Bar) and don’t forget you can only get in if you have a festival day or weekend ticket available here.
All we can say is BRING IT ON!
