A short film about the history of Long Division festival has been released.

The popular music festival has brought more than 7,500 people to Wakefield.

And more than 450 bands have performed on stage in 25 different venues across the city.

Now in its fifth year, the festival will be headlined by Northern Irish rockers Ash this weekend.

The six-minute film charts the history of the event and includes an interview with Netherton-born band The Cribs, who headlined the festival last year.

Long Division director Dean Freeman and promoter Chris Morse also discuss what the festival has brought to the city.

This year’s festival will take place from Friday, June 12 to Sunday, June 14.
