Crazy Planet Records is an independent, Berlin based, German management and touring company with a global outlook.

Over the past years we have successfully booked tours and provided tour logistics for international bands across 15 countries. Our way of business evolution led us from a pure booking agency to a concurrent strong focus upon artist management. We have specialist experience working with top quality New Zealand bands such as Six60, Sola Rosa, Cornerstone Roots, Hollie Smith and other well-respected musicians, enabling them to move toward success in the European market.

Beside that we have a partnership with publishing heavyweight BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT to offer the range of publishing and licensing to our artists. Our ethos at Crazy Planet is that we must stay open-minded in our approach and maintain our versatility as a company. As our artists grow in the European market we also grow with them and mould our company to their needs. To this end we have skills as a touring company and booker but also with artist management, local promoter, publicity and as a record label.

We have a real passion for the bands that we choose to work with. Because of this we are constantly engaged in artist development which means our view is to look to the long-term; because we truly believe in the futures of bands that we work with.

We are joyful, we are a little bit crazy, and our track record shows that when we take on an artist we succeed with them. Get in touch...
