After a year hiatus in 2017, Wakefield’s Long Division Festival returns and reveals a Save The Date video announcing its 2018 dates as June 1st to June 3rd.
Known for its strong DIY ethos and carefully curated programme, the festival has previously welcomed artists such as The Cribs, British Sea Power, The Fall, Ash, Ghostpoet, Pulled Apart By Horses and Fat White Family, as well as firmly supporting emerging local artists.
In 2018, Long Division will be presented by Wakefield BID in a partnership that will create the largest and most ambitious Long Division Festival to date.
Festival Director Dean Freeman:
“After six years of amazing Long Divisions we really needed to take a break and take stock of things; of the industry, of the city and how music festivals need to develop. The ideas have been brewing over the summer but now – with the partnership with Wakefield BID – we can bring them to life. We’re a festival that has constantly evolved and tried new things. 2018 will be a quite radical reinvention of what Long Division is and can be. Like The Fall, we’re always different, always the same. It’s going to be special, so get those dates in your diary.”
Further details of the festival will be revealed in coming months. They recommend signup to their mailing list for the latest information.
