Brix & The Extricated, Big Joanie and more are set to play

This June NME will be collaborating with Long Division Festival, hosting a Girls to the Front stage at the event.

We’ll be taking over the Warehouse 23 venue on June 6, and hosting artists like Brix & The Extricated, Big Joanie and Peggy Sue.

The Lovely Eggs
