The news comes as the band adds a further 22 bands to the bill for 2016’s festival in June.

Among those to perfomr are Brighton’s acclaimed Fear of Men alongside much hyped Indie darlings Kagoule, fast rising local heroes Allusondrugs and Glasgow’s Chemikal Underground icon RM Hubbert who makes his long awaited return to Wakefield.

Festival founder Dean Freeman explains “Long Division is massively keen to make sure there is a next generation of bands and music lovers in Wakefield.

“It’s something that is hugely overlooked in our city, but thanks to some great support from Wakefield College and others, we’ve decided to just make it free entry for 16 & 17 years olds.

“That way, it is super simple for them to get involved and see some great bands in the city.”

Free tickets will be available from the Long Division website, but must be registered for and brought to the box office on the day of the festival.
