Finally, we can reveal our near full lineup for Long Division 2021!
Added to the Saturday lineup are Glasgow indie icons Glasvegas and critically acclaimed Welsh producer and multi-instrumentalist Catherine Anne Davies and her project The Anchoress, as well as Leeds-based art-rock trio Mush and Speedy Wunderground signed quartet The Lounge Society.
Also joining them are two on the rise Hull artists; shoegaze five-piece BDRMM and garage-rock six-piece Low Hummer, further supported by Leeds-based indie-folk duo Sunflower Thieves and many others including; Crake, Venus Grrrls,Hadda Be, Knuckle, Home Counties, Adore // Repel, Mt Doubt, Bunkerpop, Cowgirl, Mayshe Mayshe, ODAS and In The Morning Lights.
We are also pleased to confirm that the recently closed Warehouse 23 venue will be reopening under the new name of ‘Venue 23’. Venue 23 will continue to sit at the heart of Long Division and Wakefield’s independent music scene. The confirmation of the saving of Venue 23 accompanies the news of a brand new space for Long Division… Wakefield’s Old Market Hall, the festivals’ largest ever venue, will be used this year for the first time. LD 2021 is only the second time that the incredible space has been used for live music following Wakefield Council’s Festival of the Moon in 2019 which hosted Public Service Broadcasting and 1000 lucky fans.
We are also announcing a brand new partnership with Tileyard North ahead of the establishment of their new site in Wakefield. A huge regeneration project for Wakefield, Tileyard North is creating a vibrant destination for creative and collaborative partnerships that will encompass all of the inclusivity and creative empowerment that Tileyard have become known for at their groundbreaking Kings Cross site in North London.
It’s such a strange mix of emotions to ‘be back’ with another lineup announcement. It honestly feels like the early days again, where it was exciting just to design a poster and see those names laid out, ready to share with the world. We want to give people the best possible Long Division we can. Not the biggest ever, but one that celebrates not just our ten years, and not just the return of live music but also the power of community. People being together – even if it’s with 1 metre gaps and masks and sanitising their hands every 30 minutes. It’s going to be great!
