Having attended Liverpool’s Threshold Festival in 2014 it was immediately a priority on the Popped Music festival calendar for  2015. This year’s festival is set once again in Liverpool’s creative hub of the Baltic Triangle and will feature and celebrate the best of grass roots and beyond in areas such as music, art and also performance. There will be unusual venues as well as secret pop up happenings across the three day festival. Because the festival is SO exciting for us this year we’re running a preview on each day so that we can give a little more focus on a few acts.

Tickets are on sale now £20 for a full weekend or £12 for a day ticket, clickity click here.

Alex Hulme – Unit 51

Alex played at last year’s Threshold which is how we found him and since then he’s become one of our local faves and has even very kindly played several sets for Popped! His lyrics are honest, his tone sincere and his loop pedal skills are pretty special. He’s building an army of followers right now so catch him while you can. Find Alex Hulme on Facebook

Eliza Shaddad – Unit 51

Eliza has featured on Popped Music before having released several tracks that have really caught our attention. We’re so excited that she’s coming to play Threshold that she’s a tip top pick for us on the Friday. Hailing from London she brings with her a striking vocal and songs that are happy to slowly creep up your spine into your subconscious. Find Eliza Shaddad on Facebook

Lyons & La Zel – Unit 51

We first caught Lyons & La Zel doing their thing just a few weeks ago at a cosy musical gathering for the first Baltic Sessions in The Baltic Social. Of course it goes without saying that they’ve been nabbed to play at Threshold too – where else could you expect to find blissful soul vocals sang alongside beatboxing and rapping?

The Baltic States – 24 Kitchen Street

We’ve not managed to see these guys live yet but several listens to them Online and we think they’ll be right up our (Kitchen) Street and we’re excited to see how they stand up to our (now very) high expectations. They combine vocals that are, at times, probably capable of shattering glass,  a melting pot of electronica as well as the ability to wave a musical wand and put you under their spell.
