Let’s have another festival!

We’re back!

The sixth addition of A Carefully Planned Festival will officially be happening on the 15th and 16th October 2016. We’ll be bringing about 150 independent and alternative artists from the UK and beyond to Manchester’s Northern Quarter at some of our favourite venues, and you can buy your limited early-bird tickets now for the rather ridiculous price of £10 via Dice or Billeto. Exciting stuff.
