Tour China 2011 follows the successful recent Planetary/Sonicbids China tour (May '10) of Olafur Arnalds from Iceland (who has been back twice since because of this first tour). This is what Olafur had to say about his China tour last year:

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.

Genres accepted include rock, pop, indie rock, reggae, World, jazz, blues, singer/songwriter and hip-hop. Pretty much anything – as long as it’s good. Planetary takes care of all logistics: visas, airfare, food, equipment rentals, permits and housing. All band members must be over 18 years of age to participate.

The Planetary Group has presented shows and tours in China, India, Singapore and Scandinavia for the past eleven years, and has also sent artists like Locksley and Something to Burn (who performed at the Beijing Rock Festival) on all expenses paid tours of China. You can read more information about these tours, get FAQs and view photos of the shows in the Tour section of the Planetary website.
