Tileyard North - Long Division Festival

Tileyard North joins Wakefield’s Long Division Festival as sponsor

The new Tileyard North development has partnered with Wakefield’s Long Division Festival as a major sponsor.

The West Yorkshire-based festival is due to take place on 25 September in venues across the city and will feature a ‘Tileyard’ stage that supports emerging talent.

As part of the partnership, Tileyard North is contributing to the lineup with the introduction of Georgia Meek, a Tileyard Education student who was awarded the prestigious Spitfire Audio scholarship this year.

“We’re so excited now to have the opening of Tileyard North within touching distance,” said Dean Freeman, Founder and Director of Long Division. “It’s going to be a major location and resource for the North Of England, but I’m especially delighted that Tileyard North have come on board to support us here at Long Division where their impact can be deeply felt by grassroots and emerging artists right here in Wakefield, and the wider region. We’re a grassroots organisation ourselves but have always strived to act as a bridge for creatives as their career develops. This partnership will only strengthen that ambition and we’re really excited to see how things develop over the coming years.”

The sponsorship is the beginning of an ongoing partnership that will see Tileyard working alongside festival founder Dean Freeman to support the initiative and work with local talent. 

“We are delighted to be working with Long Division, an outstanding local festival with a reputation for nurturing and supporting emerging talent,” said Tileyard North Paul Kempe Co-Founder and Owner. “We see this as a long-term partnership for Tileyard North and are looking forward to being able to collaborate further with Long Division at Tileyard North in the years to come.”

Future plans could see Tileyard North’s brand new event space host some of the festival in future.

Long Division Festival is a perfectly aligned partnership for Tileyard North, a pioneering festival with emerging talent at its core,” said Tileyard North Co-Founder Nick Keynes. “We are excited to watch the festival grow, and to help support and amplify the initiative, as well as immerse ourselves in some incredible music, for us, it is a perfect collaboration, and we look forward to growing with the festival.”

Tileyard is the largest community of independent artists and creative businesses in the world comprising a long list of companies and individuals that includes Apple Radio, Noel Gallagher, Spitfire Audio and Liam Howlett.

The original Tileyard campus is based in London’s King’s Cross while the new development is coming soon to Wakefield in West Yorkshire. 

The Tileyard group also includes management, publishing, and record company Tileyard Music, along with postgraduate and professional education centre Tileyard Education.
