Threshold Festival

In its fifth year, Liverpool's Threshold Festival takes over the city once again on 27th to 29th March, promising to showcase the very best talent we have to offer whether it is music or art. The Music Manual has selected a number of artists you simply cannot miss over the duration of the weekend.

FRIDAY 27th 

You must begin your pilgrimage by sloping off to Constellations at 9pm to see The Science of the Lamps, an ethereal folk project completely wholesome in tonality. Unit 51, in conjunction with Johnny Sands, welcomes singer songwriter, Alex Hulme, who has recently announced his return to Kendal Calling in the late Summer. At the Baltic Social there is a feast of excellent prowess coming from the likes of Seprona, Elevant and The Mono LPs. Seprona recently dropped their debut single, 'Only Pretend' which has seen over 1000 views in less than a month. Psych trio, Elevant, on at 11.15pm, are currently embarking on a small UK tour to coincide with the release of their album, Dreamface. Not to mention The Mono LPs have been busy working away on new material, recently announcing that new single, Emilia, will be dropped on 4th May.

Saturday 28th

The Observatory has a a selection of bands that are undoubtedly going to change your world once viewing with the likes of, Broken Men, VYNCE and Helena Johnson all taking to the stage. Broken Men recently dropped track, Parting Shot after returning back from their tour of Russia with songstress, Natalie McCool who will also be playing the festival at a Secret Location with the likes of LUNA and DROHNE. Unit 51 offers up a post-punk feast with the likes of SeaWitches and Queen Maud in conjunction with Wirral's Astral Coast Festival. District showcases Music Manual favourites, Go Fiasco along with another kooky trio from Wales called, Blood Lips and not to mention one of Liverpool's prize quintets, Scarlet. After being featured on the Manual last year, Mutant Vinyl aka Edwin Pope, returns to Liverpool with a slot at 24 Kitchen Street, a promising venue within the future of the city. But if you are looking for a lovingly prepared acoustic set then visit Liverpool's Craft Beer Space, that welcomes Jacaranda open-mic extraordinaire,  Mr Thom Morecroft. Finally, taking a trip to Siren would see you open your heart to Mick Flaherty and Emilio Pinchi - two great musicians to get to grips with if you really want to see the heart of Merseyside.

Sunday 29th 

A day full of festivities is christened by performances at The Observatory from LIMF academy grads such as Visitors; who have got some huge plans for the rest of this year, already being noticed by Reidys Exposure - not to mention Seattle Yacht Club who have had extensive gig listings situated all around the country. Moving on to Constellations; one of Liverpool's brightest musicians, Rosenblume will treat us to a preview of latest EP All Through The Fire, All Through The Rain, not to mention Henry Pulp and local songstress, Jo Bywater who has recently performed at Liverpool Acoustic Festival. Taking a break be sure to visit 19-year old trio, Shamona, at the Baltic Social. There'll be no better end to a festival than the Threshold wrap party with DJ Kid Blast, set to take place at the snazziest venue in town, The Observatory.
