FAQs

How can I apply to perform at Long Division?

It is rare that we will book a performer we’ve never heard of before. The number of slots for bands at a festival like Long Division are limited and much sought after. In 2016 we worked with Music Glue to help us find new artists for the festival. What we are looking for is not a particular genre – we wish to promote DIY artists who are hard-working and passionate and will help us promote the festival to their fans. If you wish to play, we’d expect to probably have already have heard of you, however we are also here to help new artists break new ground. But it is not just about sending us a link to your latest single.

How else can I get involved in Long Division?

We can offer lots of different opportunities for people who want to learn more about the industry, or simply want to help the festival succeed. From managing venues, to helping with press and marketing, there are plenty of ways you can get involved. Drop us an email at longdivisionfestival@gmail.com for more information.

Is Wakefield easy to get to / is it a nice place?

Yes to both! Wakefield is ideally placed for a city centre festival, being a central point on the railway network and just 15 minutes on the train from Leeds. The railway station is right next to the venues we use. And Long Division works brilliantly in Wakefield. Our venues are minutes, sometimes seconds apart. And in 2018 we plan to work more with the bars, restaurants and cultural destinations within the city to offer a full experience of the best of what Wakefield has to offer.
