Threshold Festival 2012: Line-up, stages and full details


Threshold Festival.jpg
Getintothis presents a handy list of the who, what and where of Threshold Festival 2012.

After it’s successful debut last year, Threshold Festival returns to Liverpool on February 10-12.
Combining the city’s rich diversity of new musical talent with an innovative promoting team and a feast of new venues around Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, Threshold has established itself as the main live draw for the first quarter of the year.
Antipop Records, Waxxx, Liverpool Live, NewPath and Liverpool Acoustic have teamed up with promoters from further afield, including Chai Wallah‘s, Salford’s Un-convention and alt-folk types Imploding Inevitable Festival to serve up a feast of live music.
Away from the music, perhaps most interesting will be the range of new venues hosting the music with Camp and Furnace (formerly A Foundation), the new Picket, Elevator, the Scandanavian Church and the Blade Factory all included in the three-day event.
Getintothis will bring you our guide to the freshest sounds from Threshold shortly, but in the meantime, digest this lot – and start devising those route planners – it’s going to be one beast of a weekend.
