After the sellout success of Long Division 2011, Indie Fanzine 'Rhubarb Bomb' and leading Wakefield Music Venue 'The Hop' have this week announced the return of the multi-venue music festival in 2012.

Long Division 2012 will take place across Wakefield city centre between 1st June and 3rd June.

The all day event on Saturday June 2nd will take place across 9 venues including two stages at The Hop, Wakefield Theatre Royal, Wakefield Town Hall, a Grade II listed Chapel, an Orangery and the thousand capacity Black Flag venue. The unique range of venues promises special, unique and, in some cases, very intimate gigs.

Around 70 bands will play on the Saturday with organisers revealing the first thirty this week:

Zoey Van Goey
My Sad Captains
Gentlemans Pistols
Let's Wrestle

Long Division is super convenient with all venues being within a five minute walk of one another, and the bus and train stations.

Limited "Early Bird" tickets for the Saturday are available for £13 from Crash Records and Jumbo Records (subject to booking fee) and in person at The Hop, Wakefield.

Special one-off events will take place on the Friday and Sunday, details to follow shortly.
