Threshold Festival 2013: Director Chris Carney’s routeplanner


Threshold Festival 2013 kicks off on Friday with hundreds of music acts, arts events and panel discussions taking place throughout Liverpool. Top man Chris Carney provides his ultimate guide to what’s on and where to find it. Very handy. What a lovely fella.

Threshold Festival returns for it’s 2013 edition on Friday.
Boasting more than 180 performers, artists and creative types, Threshold Festival 2013 utilises spaces across the city, including Camp and Furnace, Elevator Bar, Baltic Creative, The Picket, Arena Studios and many more as bands, one-off events and exhibitions are staged across the city.
There’s also a fringe event at the Albert Dock. That’s quite some going.
In order to gain some insight into the absolute feast of jibber jabber that’s on offer, we’ve asked Threshold director Chris Carney to select the must-see/watch events – this year, unlike last year, he’s added the arts, visuals, films and panels which are very much part and parcel of one of Liverpool’s biggest grassroots events of the year.
As co-director Kaya Herstad Carney has declared: ‘We don’t do anything by halves. This has been a joy to piece together – it’s our best festival yet by a long way.
This list goes some way to backing up that claim. Devour at will.
