Dean Freeman, Long Division Founder, said, "II love the second wave of announcements for Long Division. This year, with the first, we really pushed things for our fifth festival. But it's not until the second that it really takes shape and it's possible to really sense the character of the weekend. We've got a great collection of upcoming bands from across Yorkshire that have never played the festival before and really validate our support of DIY culture.
"We've got the best Wakefieldian bands. We've got personal heroes of ours, like Future Of The Left and Sweet Baboo. But most of all, they collectively represent five years of making stuff happen in Wakefield. Getting people to travel here and experience a weird and wonderful city. I think we have our best line-uptwitte ever, we have our best collection of venues and I absolutely guarantee we will have the most perfect weather. It's a no-brainer."
