After nine years of successful shows and tours in China and Scandinavia, Planetary Group is now accepting submissions for an unprecedented tour of India. One Sonicbids artist will be selected for a once in a lifetime, all expenses paid tour of India's best venues throughout cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune and Bangalore.

The tour will take place in late January of 2011 and will be 1-2 weeks in length, depending on the number of dates confirmed. Planetary takes care of all logistics: visas, airfare, backline rentals, permits and housing.


Planetary Group will also provide one submitting Sonicbids artist with a full eight-week radio campaign (a $3000 value) to 300 college radio stations around the country. They will create and send professional materials to the specially targeted list of stations and provide weekly reports on the resulting airplay. Planetary can also provide contact info for supporting stations so bands can thank them for airplay or set up further activities like interviews, performances, etc.


Submitting artists will also receive discounts of up to 50% on Plantery's services, which include radio promotion, new media promotion, tour press and web page design. They only work with artists that are a good fit for them, but they have multiple services, so they can generally do something for most artists.


Genres accepted include Rock, Pop, Reggae, World, Jazz, Blues, Singer/Songwriter and Hip-Hop.

QUOTES:

Hurricane Bells had an amazing time in India. we were very well taken care of, and got to see lots of beautiful Indian culture while traveling and playing some great shows. it was truly a once in a lifetime kind of experience (although we would do it again in a heartbeat...).

I didn't really know what to expect before going, thought it was just best to think of this as a nice trip, in case the shows would go horribly wrong... But it all went perfectly, the tour was amazingly well promoted and the shows turned out to be great! I have even been invited back in the autumn, got lots of good connections and even a contract with an agency over there.
