Long Division Festival has added a further 41 bands to the bill for the June festival, following the launch announcement in December which saw Bis and Los Campesinos! confirmed as the first two bands.
Included in the latest announcement are Mercury Prize nominated Sunderland brothers Field Music, Leeds post punk legends Gang Of Four, the hugely influential The Membranes, reunited The Fall survivors/ex-members Brix & The Extricated, and former Delgado Emma Pollock.
Partnering with Music Glue to run an artist application process for acts to put themselves up for consideration to play Long Division has resulted in a huge amount of exciting artists sending their music to the festival. Habberdash, Jack Winn, Yawning Dog, One Day, After School... and Milk Crimes have all been selected to perform at the festival through the platform.
Latest line up is:
Field Music // Gang Of Four // Los Campesinos! // Brix & The Extricated // Bis // The Membranes // Emma Pollock // Malcolm Middleton // Kid Canaveral // Middleman // Dancing Years // The Lake Poets // De Rosa // Johnny Foreigner // Her Name Is Calla // Post War Glamour Girls // Sam Airey // Man Made // Fizzy Blood // The Spills // The Ainsley Band // Jonnythefirth // Yard Wars // I Set The Sea On Fire // Galaxians // Stop Drop Robot // Climbing Alice // Mi Mye // Ryan Young // Thomas Wilby Gang // Juffage // Milk Crimes // Yawning Dog // Framing Witches // Little Mono // Jack Winn // Habberdash // Lewis Armitage // Deadset Dream // Monoking // One Day, After School...
Long Division will host 90 bands across 7 venues in Wakefield city centre over the weekend of the 10th to 12th June 2016. Tickets can be bought from the Long Division website.
