Long Division Festival Shares Full LD:TV Line Up
Wakefield’s Long Division Festival have shared the full line up and schedule for this weekends LD:TV fundraising digital festival.
It was originally due to take place from the 4th – 7th June in venues across Wakefield. But organisers had to take the difficult decision in March of this year to postpone the event until November 2020. However, they have honoured the original weekend to celebrate their 10th birthday with an online event.
And it aims to raise funds for artists and various funds.
Starting on Friday 5th June with a premiere of local DIY heroes Knuckle’s triumphant concert film ‘Live at Warehouse 23’ presented by Magic Rock Brewing, the festival will continue into Saturday with a 10th birthday livestream Q&A with the LD team and two main blocks of content: ‘Lets Talk Music’ and Long Division Festival.
‘Lets Talk Music’ will focus on music industry panels, masterclasses, education and outreach and feature the AIF, Music: Leeds, Backstage Academy, Yorkshire Music Forum, esteemed music journalists Charlotte Gunn & John Robb, Help Musicians and many more.
The evening will see the main block of content featuring friends of Long Division including Billy Bragg, The Lovely Eggs, The Wedding Present, Pictish Trail, Hands Off Gretel, Emma Pollock, Alessi’s Ark and many more for a two hour celebration of the festival and its history featuring new and live performances from the artists and hosted by Freeman.
There’ll be a mix of pre-recorded and live streamed content, and LD:TV will be hosted by DICE TV. Pioneering live graphics agency Never.No will be supporting them with live, interactive graphics.
This weekend’s event will be free to access, though it’s hoped that viewers and supporters will donate. Funds raised from each of the respective episodes will go to a number of causes. HOOT Creative Arts in Kirklees, Help Musicians, and #WakefieldCares will benefit, as well as all artists.
