Galaxians have been announced, along with acts Gang Of Four, Los Campesinos, Field Music and more, for Wakefield’s Long Division festival in June 2016.


Long Division is a weekend music and culture festival that takes place in Wakefield City Centre each year in June.

“It was the existence of Long Division that gave me the confidence to bring back Unity Hall as a music venue.” – Chris Hill (Unity Works Developer). 

Since its formation in 2011, Long Division has led the way in develping Wakefield as a respected and revered musical and cultural destination. It is run by a very small but dedicated group of people who wanted to showcase Wakefield’s often overlooked musical talents to a wider audience.


“Absolutely invaluable to us, the biggest showcase of the year for bands and venues in the city. Makes me proud to tears every year.” – Rob Dee (Philophobia Music, Wakefield). 

Using a range of city centre venues, it now attracts 3000 people each year, showcasing local talent by placing them alongside national artists. It has consistently produced line-ups amongst the strongest and most value for money across the whole country.

“Made by Music fans, for Music fans.” – Louder Than War.
