production team behind the festival who last month celebrated Arts
Council funding success. Expanding again after the more compact
‘Across the Threshold’ event in 2018, the 2019 event will take place
across Baltic venues including: District, 24 Kitchen Street, Brick
Street, Hobo Kiosk, RPM Studios more to be announced.
“We want to give you a taste of what’s to come in March when the whole
programme drops with a mix of local, emerging and international acts.
We hope you enjoy our First Wave.” – Kaya Herstad Carney, Artistic
The line-up includes Seafoam Green fresh from a US tour and their
sell-out homecoming show The Last Waltz. Piratical comedy pantheons
Jollyboat, still reeling from an outstanding run at the 2018 Edinburgh
Always a highlight and a mainstay of the festival; Science of the
Lamps fronted by festival artistic director Kaya will aim to top their
previous years when spontaneous crowd congas have become the norm. In
similar fashion, ever effervescent dance floor ignitors The Soul Rays
will be making sure the crowd don’t stand still.
Bringing international flavour to the line-up will be progressive
eclectic rock outfit SKAAR, hailing from Norway’s west coast of Bergen.
Having been a regular of the early Threshold Festival editions, it’s a
welcome return for Manchester’s Felix Hagan & The Family, while
newcomers Unstoppable Sweeties Show will represent the alt-rock scene
of Liverpool being championed by independent record label POSTMUSIC.
In visual arts, the multi-talented Jazamin returns for the ninth
consecutive year to not only bring her unique creations to the
exhibition, but also to curate the entire show alongside festival
director Andy Minnis.
Returning also in theatre and performance, improvised comedy pariahs
Impropriety will bring their usual spontaneity and face hurtingly
funny antics. While cheeky yet tenacious burlesque star Little Peaches
will represent the more risqué end of the Threshold artistic spectrum.
Beguilling songwriter Emilio Pinchi and captivating performer Tosin
Salako round off what is a strong representation of the Threshold we
are to expect in 2019.
