Under the Radar magazine is excited to reveal the full lineups, poster, and set times for our three SX 2014 day parties, taking place on Wednesday, March 12, Thursday, March 13, and Friday, March 14.

We Were Promised Jetpacks headline Thursday’s party. Thursday’s lineup also includes The Mary Onettes, Small Black, Avi Buffalo, Thumpers, Painted Palms, and GEMS.

Charli XCX gets top billing on Friday’s party. Friday’s lineup also includes Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Arthur Beatrice, Gruff Rhys, Weekend, Woman’s Hour, and Glass Animals.


All events are free and open to the public-no SX badges are required. You’re welcome to 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 SX-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 SX 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 SX, 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.
