Threshold is back for a 2 day mini-adventure in the Baltic Triangle this weekend

The countdown is on until Across the Threshold, a 2 day mini-adventure in the Baltic Triangle featuring a whole host of music, performance, visual arts, workshops & discussion.

Joining the festival from Liverpool, the North West, UK and as far afield as Oslo and New York City,Across The Threshold has a huge array of genre bending, mad cap creative, pop rocking acts for audiences at Unit 51, District and Hobo Pub and will showcase a snapshot of some of the North West’s and UK’s best grass roots music, visual arts and innovative performance.

Following the success and building on the legacy of seven consecutive years of their Festival of Music & Arts, Threshold scaled down their festivities this year but still promise an incredible weekend with a much more intimate feel.

Add that to a stunning visual arts programme featuring some of Threshold‘s favourite past exhibitors and you have a true multi-arts mini-adventure spanning across the 13th and 14th of April.

Also new for 2018, Liverpool Acoustic is teaming up with Across The Threshold to introduce a brand new challenge to the region’s songwriters. A theme will be unveiled at 1.00pm on Friday 13th April 2018 on the Songwriting Challenge website and across social media channels. Songwriters will then have just 24 hours to write a new song that fits the theme. Once they’ve finished the song they then register to perform it at the Showcase Event starting at 1.00pm on Saturday 14th April.

The Showcase Event takes place at the brand new Hobo Kiosk Pub and is free entry. Judging the songs will be composer, musician and founder of Operation Lightfoot Luke Moore, musician and Threshold team member Emilio Pinchi, and Liverpool Acoustic co-organiser Dr Derek King.

Performance places will be allocated in the order registered. Only songwriters with a completed song will be able to enter, and with only 20 places available at the Showcase Event it’ll be a race against the clock to claim one!

Interested songwriters are being asked to read the rules on the Songwriting Challenge website before deciding whether or not to take part.
