Billy Bragg And King Creosote Among First Names Confirmed For Long Division Festival

Thursday, 01 February 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Billy Bragg and King Creosote are among the first wave of acts to be confirmed for this year's Long Division Festival in Wakefield.

Also announced are Charlotte Hatherly, Cud, the Lovely Eggs, Helen Marnie (Ladytron), Shatner’s Bassoon, Mush, Cattle & Cane, Galaxians, Drahla, Mi Mye, Team Picture, Adore // Repel, Glass Mountain, Cape Cub, Peaness, Esper Scout, the Fire Harvest, Loux, Radidas, the Golden Age Of TV, Napoleon IIIrd, Crake, Simon Widdop, Colour Of Spring, the Tidy Wives and Loz Campbell.

Following its fallow year in 2017, Long Division will expand to a three day event between June 1 and 3. It will host a broader programme of free entry and paid events at venues across the city, including Wakefield Cathedral, Warehouse 23, Wakefield Town Hall, Elizabethan Gallery, The Red Shed, Wakefield Beer Exchange, Jolly Boys' Tap, Neon Workshops and Wakefield Precinct, with more to be announced. 

Festival founder Dean Freeman said:

“It's wonderful to be back in the game of announcing artists and projects again. Taking a year out in 2017 was tough because we were just bystanders, whilst the world turned on without us. I don't think it's often a festival like us has that luxury, to step off the treadmill and really think about what it wants to be. We learnt our passion isn't for people up on a stage playing guitars; it is for culture and how it brings people together. It's also a passion for our city and for creating opportunities for artists and performers where there can often be too few.”

Saturday tickets are on sale now, priced at £25 plus fees.

Long Division Festival Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Sat June 02 2018 - WAKEFIELD Various Venues
