Long Division will be occupying Warehouse 23 on Saturday 2 June for a huge day of live music, performances and much more across the city centre. See the full line up of artists and bands below for Warehouse 23.

Cape Cub - 13:45
Hailing from the shores of the North East coast, Cape Cub is the project of emerging producer and songwriter Chad Male; his song Swim finding its way to the top of the Hype Machine chart and gained national airplay via BBC Radio 1 and has had support slots with the likes of Fickle Friends, Picture This, Sunset Sons and Clean Cut Kid.

Mush - 14:45
Mush are an artrock band from Leeds. Debut single Alternative Facts and follow up Luxury Animals got regular plays on BBC 6 Music and resulted in two live sessions with Marc Riley plus tours with The Wytches, British Sea Power and Ulrika Spacek.

Drahla - 16:00
Blending wiry post-punk with unpredictable art-rock, Drahla have garnered early critical praise with their first singles. Their minimal yet robust bass-heavy sound and reputation as a fervent live act saw them sharing stages with Parquet Courts, The Cribs, Buzzcocks, Dream Wife and Menace Beach.

Glass Mountain - 17:15
Taking their name from a David Hockney artwork, the quartet’s sound is drenched in visual allusion, matching the size and scope of Sigur Ros or The Cure to something much more delicate and personal. They draw influences from alt rock, dream pop, post rock and electronica to the Theramin tinged orchestral swells and surges of The Beach Boys.

Galaxians - 18:30
Within the music of Galaxians lies a powerfully hedonistic strain that does much to loop a thread through the party lineage of their hometown of Leeds. Coupled with the first impressions of what the pair loosely term their pre-digital dance music, you might not raise an eyebrow to find out that their cues are taken in-part from classic disco and house labels. The performance will be accompanied by a interactive light installation / projection by Alicia Wallace.

CUD - 19:15
With affable charm, good wit and penchant for the unexpected, CUD took art pop into the charts in the early nineties and inspired fan devotion with belting funk nuggets such as Rich and Strange and Purple Love Balloon. They are indie rock for the unpretentious pleasure seeker. Following a decade of gardening leave, CUD have returned with a set full of classics and a smattering of new tunes.

Evil Blizzard - 21:00
A raw musical infusion, brought together by the band’s love of classic rock, indie, metal, ABBA and goth. After opening for an eclectic mix of contemporaries including Hawkwind, Rainbow, Killing Joke, Public Image Limited, Space, Sleaford Mods, Chameleons Vox, Ruts DC and Embrace it appears that no musical genre is immune to the subtle charm that is the unforgettable and indescribable Evil Blizzard live experience.

The Lovely Eggs - 22:15
An underground surreal-psych punk rock duo from northern England, The Lovely Eggs have a fierce ethos that music should have no rules. For Holly and David being in a band is a way of life. With observational and often surreal lyrics about life they have a powerful stripped down sound: one vintage guitar amp, one Big Muff distortion pedal, a guitar and a drum kit. The Lovely Eggs are one of the most exciting, innovative and genuine bands on the British Underground Music Scene.
