If you are planning on hitting up some music festivals this summer and looking for some “companionship” while you are there – Tinder now has a new feature called “Festival Mode.” Festival mode allows users to do exactly what you think it will. It allows users to add festivals they’ll be at to their Tinder profiles so they can match up with other users who plan on being at the same festival.
Tinder users will be able to select from 12 festivals in both the US and UK, including Governors Ball, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, HARD Summer and EDC in Orlando. Opt into Festival Mode, choose which festivals you’ll be attending and you’ll get a badge highlighting your upcoming destination about three weeks before the event. The app will prioritize potential matches who are planning to attend the same festival and will show people from around the world who will be there — even if they’re outside a user’s location preferences.
