Long Division has also announced that, thanks to a partnership with Wakefield College, the festival will now offer free entry to all 16 & 17 year olds.
Festival founder Dean Freeman explained, "Long Division is massively keen to make sure there is a next generation of bands and music lovers in Wakefield. It's something that is hugely overlooked in our city, but thanks to some great support from Wakefield College and others, we've decided to just make it free entry for 16 & 17 years olds. That way, it is super simple for them to get involved and see some great bands in the city."
Free E-tickets will be available from the Long Division website, but must be registered for and brought to the box office on the day of the festival.
The format this year sees the opening Friday have a special guest perform at a free party. The main day is Saturday 11th June and will feature at least 8 stages, with 70+ bands performing from midday to midnight - the ticket is swapped for a wristband giving access to all venues.Sunday will feature LD's traditional live album recording with a special guest.
Ticket prices have been frozen at the 2015 price for next year, and organisers are now offering a reduction to just £15 for 18 to 21 year olds and £10 for 16 & 17 year olds.
Friday is free. An adult ticket for Saturday is priced at £25, and a ticket for those aged 18-21 years is priced at £15, and a ticket for those aged 16-17 1 years is priced at £10.
