We Are Scientists, Peter Hook and Menace Beach are among the new names for Long Division

Long Division have announced their full music line-up, and a host of other performers, events and activities.

Leading the names are Peter Hook & The Light, We Are Scientists, Asian Dub Foundation, Penguin Café, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert, Keston Cobblers Club, bis, Avi Buffalo and Menace Beach.

Playing this year, there’s also Art Brut, Bill Ryder-Jones, Too Many T’s, Liela Moss, Meursault, Imperial Wax, False Advertising, Alessi's Ark, Mi Mye, Cruel World, Hello Cosmos and Dead Naked Hippies.

In addition to all the music names, the event will host a huge festival quiz for charity, Richard Herring recording his Leicester Square Theatre Podcast at Theatre Royal, a city centre record fair, a zine workshop and loads more.

Long Division Director Dean Freeman says: “After our biggest ever year in 2018, our feeling for 2019 very much centred around this phrase of "More Than A Festival". We've always been challenged by the physical spaces and the infrastructure in Wakefield; we're not a city setup to host something like Long Division. But we've always turned that into a positive, making the festival an unusual but joyfully surprising experience.

“We continue to do that, beyond the music we put on - though I do feel that this is our strongest line-up yet from the headliners right down to those emerging artists. It's about using the festival idea and turning it into something more; let's raise money for a mental health charity, let's run an education programme to find the next generation of DIY promoters, let's offer £500 to local artists to create something new and show it off to these audiences, as they travel between Peter Hook and Asian Dub Foundation. We don't do things the easy way, but it is fun, rewarding and makes an impact.

“Even after all these years, the idea of coming to Wakefield for many people feels like a leap of faith. Just do it. We've proven time and time again it is worth it. Whether you are a hardcore 6Music listener, have a young family, are mad on spoken word, love comedy, or just want to explore and see unusual things, Wakefield is the place to be.”
