Tinder makes festival hookups easier with new feature
Many people dream of finding a fling to share special moments with at a music festival. Tinder has heard these desires—and also seen them via usage patterns on their platform during said events—and has accordingly launched a new ‘Festival Mode’ in partnership with Live Nation and AEG. Quite a few major festivals have joined on thus far, including EDC Orlando and Las Vegas, Governor’s Ball, HARD Summer, and Bonnaroo. The feature spreads to the UK as well with Parklife, Lovebox, and more on board.
Similar to features on Tinder Plus that allow users to swipe in different locations than their home base, Festival Mode helps facilitate dates ahead of the festival chaos. Users can select their chosen event, swipe right, and chat all before arriving. The press release calls attention to the benefit of this new service, proudly asserting, “No longer are your connections limited to your campsite neighbors or whose shoulders you stood on during the headliner’s performance.”
What a time to be alive (and get laid).
