There are only a few hundred tickets left for this weekend’s Long Division Festival.
The city music event sold out in 2011 and organisers believe it could happen again this year.
There was a huge increase in sales over the weekend, with music fans snapping up tickets from The Hop, Wakefield Tourist Information Centre and See Tickets.
From Friday until Sunday more than 70 bands, including headliners The Fall, will perform across eight stages.
And for the first time there will be a fringe festival, which will include talks, readings, comedy, pop-up cinema and a tour of Unity Hall.
The annual event is being organised by Dean Freeman, of Rhubarb Bomb.
He said: “There is always a rush in the week leading up to the weekend itself.
“In 2011 it ended up selling out, so I would recommend people get them beforehand otherwise they might be very disappointed.
“It looks like summer is finally with us, and I can think of no better way to enjoy it than walking round Wakefield city centre watching amazing bands and enjoying a few drinks with friends. The festival season is here.”
Weekend tickets are £20 in advance or will be £30 on the day.
Both The Hop, on Bank Street, and tourist information centre, on The Bull Ring, have almost sold out, but around another 100 tickets will be available from tomorrow (Tuesday).
