Established in 2003, we are the only independent, locally owned and operated, full service concert production company in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. We promote events 52 weeks a year in venues from clubs to stadiums to multi-day festivals and everything in between. APE exclusively operates and promotes concerts at the Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley, San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, The Castro, and The Independent, the Fox Theater in Oakland, the Oxbow RiverStage in Napa, and Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys. Annual festivals include San Francisco’s Outside Lands in Golden Gate Park and Las Vegas’ Life is Beautiful. Another Planet also includes Artist Management and Special Events divisions. The founders of Another Planet Entertainment (APE) have a deep and long history in the Bay Area, having previously been with Bill Graham Presents. Named “Top Independent Promoter” in the United States by Billboard Magazine for the past 3 consecutive years, we strive to bring the very best experience to artists and audiences alike!
