All events are free and open to the public-no SXSW badges are required. You’re welcome to just show up on the day.

But in case there’s a line or we are to capacity, get the Applauze app to RSVP for preferred entry into the show! Download the app, search for Under the Radar, and tap “I’m In.” Download Applauze here.

Applauze is the simplest way to purchase tickets from your phone. Currently available in over 50 cities in the U.S. and Canada, Applauze helps you discover, plan, and attend the best events around you.

Do not RSVP on this page, please only RSVP via the Applauze app or just show up on the day.


The parties will feature free beer courtesy of Sapporo USA (while supplies last).

The renowned amplifier manufacturer Orange Amplification is sponsoring all three days. In addition to giving SXSW-goers the opportunity to demo Orange gear at our parties, Orange will donate $1 to Little Kids Rock every time someone posts to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #OrangeGives (limited to one entry per person/social media identity). You don’t need to be at SXSW to participate, but bonus points if you post a photo or video of a band getting loud with Orange gear along with the hashtag #OrangeGives.

The #OrangeGives campaign benefitting Little Kids Rock will kick off Wednesday, March 12 at 11 AM CST and ends Sunday, March 16 at 11:59 PM CST.

What’s more, everyone who includes the #OrangeGives hashtag along with a photo or video showing Orange-whether on stage at SXSW, in their home studio, or with bands rocking out at a local club-will be entered into a drawing to win a premium Orange OR15 Amp Head.

Little Kids Rock is a national nonprofit that transforms children’s lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in under-served public schools. More info at www.littlekidsrock.org.

Drowned in Sound, Britain’s best music website, is our U.K. media partner on the events.

Other sponsors include MailChimp (more than 5 million people use MailChimp to create, send, and track email newsletters), and the record labels ANTI- and Polyvinyl.

The parties will happen from 12-6 PM at the Flamingo Cantina at 6th and Red River (515 E. 6th Street, Austin, TX 78701). This is the ninth year in a row that Under the Radar has hosted events at SXSW.

Hi -

I have been trying to RSVP for the Thursday day show, but I have an android phone and am unable to download the applauze app. How can I RSVP in another way? I tried downloading the app to my mac, but it won’t open. Thanks!

Free events attract a large crowd. While some people prefer to party differently, like renting a party bus st. louis and party all the city, others like to go to music festivals, listen to their favorite music, drink tasty beverages and eat fresh food.
