We began the week cautiously optimistic that Long Division could happen in June but things are moving fast and it has become apparent that the smartest and safest thing for us to do is to move the festival to later in the year. We have been working quickly with our partners, venues and artists and can now confirm that the festival will take place between the 12th – 15th November with the multi-venue all dayer taking place on Saturday 14th November.
We’d like to thank all of our artists and their teams who have been working fast to confirm the new date and we’re pleased to say that the majority of our line up and all of our headliners have already confirmed, though there will inevitably be one or two changes. We can currently confirm that…
The Unthanks, The Futureheads, Beardyman, The Lovely Eggs, She Drew The Gun, Brix & The Extricated, Lanterns On The Lake, Too Many T’s, Big Joanie, Allusinlove, Look Mum No Computer, Hands Off Gretel, Hannah Trigwell, POZI, Mush, Team Picture, Dead Naked Hippies, Faux Pas, Weekend Recovery, Scarlet, Ruthie, Abbie Ozard, Langkamer and 30 more…
are lined up to join us on November 14th in Wakefield.
It was absolutely not an easy call to make but the health and safety of our guests, staff, artists, partners and our community has to be our priority. All tickets remain valid but if you cannot make the new date we will of course offer refunds.
We’re exploring ways to support our local creative community during this difficult time with plans for an emergency artists fund and a free all day event in late summer to kickstart live music in the city once it is safe to do so.
Thank you for all your kind message and continued support of Long Division – it means the world to us.
