Threshold Festival 2020 postponed due to coronavirus – Baltic Triangle event to be staged later in year


Threshold Festival

Threshold Festival becomes the latest event to be affected by the coronavirus, Getintothis’ Peter Guy on the postponement. 

Threshold Festival of Music and Arts 2020 has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Organisers of the Baltic Triangle event have “decided with heavy hearts” to postpone the event which was due to be the final Threshold Festival.

After ten years the Threshold was due to take place on April 3 and 4, however, with coronavirus sweeping the globe and the death toll rising, organisers have taken government and health care advice and postponed the festival.

Over the past ten years the festival has played host to formative performances from Liverpool success stories such as Stealing SheepAll We Are, Chelsea Grimes and Queen Zee.

The event has become hugely popular not just for its support of Merseyside artists, but also for its continued commitment to supporting art of all forms and bridging the gap between the artist and the industry in the form of annual panels and keynote speakers across the city.

Threshold Festival 2020

In a statement, organisers told Getintothis: “Over the weekend we discussed the current state of affairs with the team and we decided with heavy hearts that we will likely have to cancel our dates April 3-4 and look to reschedule the festival later in the year, as the most socially responsible measure to take during the current pandemic.

Due to the expected Government announcements and guidelines on self-isolation, it feels irresponsible of us to press on. We are still checking guidance daily and we will go public with postponing Threshold 2020 as soon as we have all the information together that this is the best possible solution.”

  • Getintothis was due to reveal our special collaboration with Threshold this week with our very own stage featuring a tremendous assortment of artists – however, we’ll leave that for later in the year.
