Festival organisers stated, "The feedback from 2011 was amazing; alongside massive improvements to Wakefield in general, including the opening of The Hepworth Gallery and Trinity Walk Shopping Centre, Long Division really showed how Wakefield has become a great place to visit. Long Division is super convenient with all venues being within a five minute walk of one another, and the bus and train stations. Rhubarb Bomb and The Hop's dedication to supporting local DIY influenced artists shone through with the friendly, inclusive and passionate atmosphere that characterised the weekend."
