Wakefield's Long Division Festival has cancelled its 2020 edition, moving it to summer 2021. The event, which had originally postponed until later this year, has launched a Crowdfunder to tide it over the gap.

In a statement this morning, Long Division Director Dean Freeman said: "We've been in a holding pattern since we postponed back in March and the time has come to make a call. It's based on public safety and wellbeing. As much as we all miss live music and enjoying it with our friends, it wouldn't be right to organise an event that draws thousands of people from every corner of the UK to pack into sweaty, intimate spaces."

The statement also notes the "difficult financial situation" the cancellation has left the festival in, and asks for donations to reach a "modest yet vital amount".
