Threshold Festival 2013 lines up MOBO Award winner and GIT Award nominee Esco Williams as headliner – plus full line up is revealed.

Esco Williams is to headline Threshold Festival 2013, Getintothis can exclusively reveal.
Following his packed out show at Liverpool O2 Academy last week, MOBO Award winner and former GIT Award nominee Esco Williams will join a superb line-up of talent on Saturday March 9 at Camp and Furnace.
Since playing Threshold‘s Blade Factory stage & Aintree Racecourse Liverpool stage last year, Esco Williams has been on a huge adventure, playing Liverpool Sound City, becoming one of the first nominees of the GIT Award and of course that all important MOBO.
Kaya Herstad Carney, Threshold Festival director, said: ‘We love Esco Williams and always love to work with him. I don’t think this year’s line-up would be complete without him and his band on board. He really encapsulates how exciting the music scene in Liverpool is right now,

The Paper Garden Stage, designed by The Craft Creative and in association with Soul Inspired Events in the Furnace will host Esco and his band. He will play on the line-up with A Ray of Charles, Coffee & Cakes for Funerals and LA soul acoustic artist JC Villafan.
