British Sea Power will play the opening night at this year’s Long Division Festival which returns for a fifth year, and takes place at multiple venues across the city of Wakefield, West Yorkshire from Friday 12th until Sunday 14th June 2015.

On Friday 12th June  the band will play a greatest hits set  at the Unity Works.
 
 
On Sunday attendees can watch a live album by Aynsley Lister Band being made at Unity Works in association with Greenmount Studios (The Cribs, Pulled Apart by Horses).

Dean Freeman, Long Division Founder, said,  "It's hard to believe it's five years since I started Long Division. Wakefield has come a long way in that time. The thing that excites me most about Long Division is that it still excites me. It's still so much fun to organise, and to see and hear such amazing bands in my hometown. And then to meet people from all over the country who have travelled here and are having such a great time. I've just got back from a trip meeting the big artist booking agents in London; they all know about Wakefield now, because of this festival. 

"I'm so pleased to have Ash play in Wakefield. Although they are seen as a guitar band, I think they are one of the best pop bands ever. Tim Wheeler writes amazing, classic pop songs. Long Division has always been about true Indie music, the alternative, the DIY. I think Ash embody that, it just so happens they have some of the catchiest songs ever! To see and hear the sing-alongs in Unity Works will be amazing. And yet, they are only the tip of the iceberg for a line-up with over 80 bands."
