More names have been added to Wakefield's vibrant city festival Long Division, including The Unthanks and Peggy Sue. Roddy Woomble - frontman of Idlewild - will also appear, as well as Leeds post-punk outfit Mush.

They join the already-announced She Drew The Gun, Brix & The Extricated and Big Joanie, plus Abbie Ozard, Low Hummer and Rev Magnetic. 

The exciting festival - a crucial date in the British festival calendar - takes place across some seriously cool converted spaces in Wakefield, including the Old Market this June. 

Sunderland lads The Futureheads will bring their fresh set to the main stage with a celebration of their own: in 2020, it'll be fifteen years since their debut album.

More standouts on the bill include Beans On Toast and Allusinlove.

Long Division has a fond space in Gigwise's heart. Last year, we called it "one of the most anticipated dates on the festival calendar", adding that it "epitomise Wakefield’s revitalised scene."
