FAQs

Where exactly does Long Division Festival take place?

The festival takes place across Wakefield City Centre. All the venues are very close together and very close to Wakefield Westgate Train Station and Wakefield Bus Station. 

Is Long Division Festival over four days?

Yes. Thursday & Friday feature one-off performances, some free and some ticketed. Saturday is the BIG day, running from midday til midnight with around 100 performances, workshops, exhibitions and events. Sunday is our more family focused day. 

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. It is a relatively cheap place to stay over, go out and have a good time. There are lots of great restaurants and bars and plenty to see and do outside of Long Division. 

Wakefield doesn’t have O2 Academies and trendy venues. A Long Division experience is more akin to what gigs used to be like; personal, different, unique experiences among real music and culture fans. 

Can I go to Long Division Festival for free?

Yes! Some of Saturday and all of Sunday comprises our Fringe Festival which includes some great live music and workshops, most of which are great for families with young children. Sign up for a free ticket to get discounts in local businesses over the weekend too.

When / where are the headliners performing on Saturday?

The timetable will be released shortly. 

Is it guranteed I will see the bands I want to see?

Your ticket is swapped for a wristband at the start of the day. That wristband gains you access to all venues. However, when venues become full, we operate a one out, one in system. We always recommend getting down early for artists you really want to see. 

Is Long Division suitable for children / families?

Most of our stages in 2020 are suitable for families and there will be workshops and activities announced that will be specifically cater for them. We’re making a big effort to make as much of it as accessible as possible in 2020.

How can I apply to perform at Long Division?

Applications opened at the start of the year but have now closed.

For the multi-venue June 6th event, some venues may have their own age restrictions in place. Please contact us if you have any concerns
