Long Division is a Music and Cultural Festival that takes place in Wakefield City Centre, across multiple venues, and is a celebration of Independence and DIY Culture.

2016 will be its 6th year, and arrives off the back of a hugely successful Crowdfunding Campaign which saw well over 100 supporters pledge over £7500 towards the festival.

The festival is noted for its dedication to up and coming artists, and placing them on bills alongside the best DIY influenced artists. Previous performers include The Cribs, British Sea Power, Ghostpoet, Ash, The Fall, The Wedding Present, Gruff Rhys, Art Brut, Pulled Apart By Horses, Fat White Family, The Vaselines, Los Campesinos! and Jeffrey Lewis.

Pulled Apart By Horses

Friday June 10th will see a special guest open the festival. June 11th will feature at least 8 stages, with 70+ bands performing from midday to midnight - your ticket is swapped for a wristband giving access to all venues. June 12th will feature our traditional Live Album recording with a special guest.
