The Baltic Triangle is the fastest growing creative and entertainment hub in Liverpool. Its quirky aesthetic and bohemian flare have attracted artists in all forms; from food and drink specialists to street artists, musicians to entrepreneurs – the Baltic Triangle is open to all.

With an endless choice of unique events, festivals, markets and bars, it’s no surprise that it was voted number one in the “20 coolest places to live in Britain” in The Times.

A once desolate and neglected area, The Baltic Triangle is now a thriving and vibrant hub of versatile creative talent.

This summer there is an incredible line up of events and festivals on offer. Here’s what we think you shouldn’t miss.
