Threshold Festival of Music & Arts has its roots in the creative industries of Liverpool and the North West. For 8 successive years, the event has brought together a diverse wealth of artists, musicians, promoters, academics and enthusiasts to The Baltic Triangle district of the city.
The festival was previewed in The Guardian in 2014 and has been critically acclaimed in citywide and regional press. The event is a life force for grass-roots and emerging arts and regarded by many as an established platform for creative practitioners of all stages of artistic development.
Using the once derelict and now booming warehouse venues of the Baltic, which has drawn comparisons to Berlin, Shoreditch and the Meatpacking District of New York, Threshold has grown up with a playground for those seeking the alternative, experimental and fresh.
Founded by Kaya Herstad Carney and Chris Herstad Carney as an expression of passion for the grass-roots music and arts scene of their hometown, the festival has grown in stature every year, attracting more visitors, participants and team members with each edition. Threshold was started by artists for artists, and is dedicated to authenticity, integrity and entertainment at it’s very best.
