The 10th edition of Long Division Festival, which takes place in the city of Wakefield, Yorkshire, from Thursday 4th May to Sunday 7th June 2020, has announced the first acts for its multi-venue music festival on Saturday 6th June.

Long Division director Dean Freeman said "Reaching the tenth Long Division Festival is a huge landmark for us. Doing what do, in Wakefield, in an era of austerity, has been incredibly tough but also amazingly rewarding. Long Division Festival 10 is in part a look back at how far we've come - we've invited back some old friends and given the lineup a little more of a celebratory vibe than usual. But it's also a starting point for what could be the next ten years. We're now a group of people that work all year round and we're excited to use Long Division Festival to be a catalyst to develop our city and positively impact the music industry. "
Saturday tickets are on sale, currently priced from £30.
