A Carefully Planned Festival #6 happened on the 15th and 16th October 2016. 160 acts played over nine venues, with the Night & Day stage hosted by our pals at Musical Mathematics. We even had our own official festival pale ale, thanks to Marble Brewery. It was great. The artwork was by the wonderful James Batty, you can read the ACPF team’s recommendations here, and look at the festival programme here.
