Wakefield is an incredibly convenient place to visit. Only 12 minutes from Leeds and 2 hours from London on the train, it is also right on the crossroads of the M1 and M62. Throw in some very affordable hotels, generally cheaper pints and a city centre with 14 venues mere minutes apart and it becomes clear why Long Division Festival has a reputation of excellent value.
Bus: Wakefield Bus Station is a literal stones throw from our Main Stage and box office this year. National Express coaches also operate out of here.
By Plane: Our nearest airports are Leeds Bradford – 40 minute drive, Doncaster / Sheffield (Robin Hood) – 50 minute drive and Manchester Airport is only an hours drive.
The Main Festival takes place on Saturday June 6th, with various Fringe events June 4th – 7th. For the main day you will swap your ticket at the wristband exchange for a wristband. This will then give you access to all venues. Most Fringe events are free to attend.
Alongside regular tickets, there are group discounts, bundles that come with an exclusive vinyl and U18 tickets for just £1. All are available through See Tickets and Wah Wah Records (Wakefield), Jumbo and Crash Records (Leeds) and Warren Records (Hull).
On the Saturday, you swap your ticket for a wristband, which gives access to all venues – easy! Be aware that some venues will reach capacity, so always get down early for bands you really want to see.
Long Division Festival is well known for it’s mix of classic music venues and quirky, hidden spaces. This year is no different. As ever, they are all incredibly conveniently placed in the heart of the city, not only close to one another but plenty of restaurants, hotels and public transport links. Start your day at the Wristband Exchange and go from there.
We are currently finalising the venues for this year’s event. Once this is done we will share accessibility information.
A full timetable will be released in April. On Saturday he first performances start at midday, with the last approx 23:00, with an afterparty clubnight planned.
Tickets for U18s are available for just £1.
The Saturday and Sunday will both feature a range of fun and free family activities suitable for younger families across the daylight hours. Information to be released soon.
