Tinder Wants You to Swipe Right at Music Festivals

Or in more blunt terms, it makes it easier to hook up with people at music festivals.

May 3, 2019

(WXRT) - I don't know if it's your thing to try and find love at a music festival, but if there's any inclination to do so, Tinder made it that much easier.

The popular dating app announced a new feature Thursday called Festival Mode, allowing users to mark music festivals they're attending and connect with others that'll be there as well.

Aside from swiping right, the app also gets you access to exclusive VIP upgrades, various bits of swag, and more.

In a press release, Tinder said that activity in the app has increased up to 300 times its normal amount during festivals like Bonnaroo. Tinder users can mark themselves as festival attendees and begin making connections with potential matches up to three weeks before the event. The app will prioritize potential matches that are planning to attend the fest and will show people from around the world who will be there. 

Many major music festivals like Bonnaroo, Hangout, Governor's Ball in the United States and All Points East in the UK have joined up with Tinder to participate in festival mode.
