Liverpool Threshold Festival returns in 2021 for final event
Liverpool’s Threshold Festival is bowing out this spring with a final event which is hopes will take place both online and – restrictions permitting – in person in the Baltic Triangle.
Organisers hope to take over the District live music venue on April 9-10 for the festival which was postponed from last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Threshold is an annual celebration of grassroots music and arts, and the 2021 event will include live performances and original artwork by regional, national and international artists.
There will also be live DJ sets, workshops and discussions.
Although organisers are hoping to be able to stage some events in person, most will take place online including on platforms like Zoom and Twitch.
Threshold artistic director Kaya Herstad Carney says: “It’s such a difficult time for all of us, so as well as wanting to say goodbye to Threshold properly, we want to create something that people can look forward to in the spring when things are likely to still be in an uncertain place.”
Producer Chris Herstad Carney adds: “We’re fully aware that the ever-changing nature of the current climate will dictate what we’re able to do physically over the festival weekend.
“But regardless of this, the online offering will be to the highest standard we can provide. We’re very grateful to those who purchased tickets to the postponed event and we’ll make sure anyone with a pass will be looked after in true Threshold style.” Most of the online content will be available to all for free, while ticket holders who previously bought passes will get priority access to physical events (should they choose to and should they be able to go ahead) plus exclusive online content as well as a choice of merchandise.
Threshold Festival is on April 9-10. More information from the website HERE
