PLANETROX CHINA 2014 REACHES ITS FINALE
On Saturday 14 June, The Underground presents the grand finale of Planetrox China 2014. Five of the best bands going around will compete head-to-head for the chance to fly to Canada and represent our region at Envol et Macadam, the largest alternative music festival in Quebec City.
The winner will be selected by a panel of industry judges combined with an audience vote. Last year’s winners, Shotgun Politics, made the most of their hard-fought victory by making numerous major appearances and touring extensively on the back of the exposure they gained from Planetrox.
About The Underground
Hong Kong has a vibrant and diverse music scene waiting to be discovered. The mission of The Underground is to bring these hidden gems to light. It has done this by putting together well over 170 shows over 10 years, including regular gigs at city venues, major festivals and special events for touring acts. The boundless passion and energy of the Underground reflect the persona of its boss and founder, legendary rock mum Chris B.
The Underground is committed to helping local artists kickstart their international careers and connect to the world, which it does via events, CD releases and leveraging its extensive music industry network for conference appearances, reciprocal touring arrangements and more. This is the fourth year The Underground has staged Planetrox China as part of that effort.
Planetrox is a worldwide music competition whose mission is to discover the best new bands and expose them to a wider international audience. This year Planetrox will involve Canada, the United States, France, Great Britain, Germany, Czech Republic, Japan, China, Indonesia and Mexico.
Envol et Macadam is Quebec’s top alternative music festival. It continues to innovate and to develop projects that allow local and international up-and-coming artists the chance to take part in an event that annually attracts over 20,000 music fans as well as many industry professionals. Past performers have included Bad Religion, IAM, Sum 41, Pennywise, Metric, Bloc Party, The Exploited, As I Lay Dying, No Use For a Name, Lagwagon and NOFX.
