Thanks to the vaccines against COVID-19 and the precaution of people, this year the infections and deaths have decreased considerably, consequently the activities that were restricted little by little have returned to normal. The concerts are one of those things that everyone longed for and can now enjoy, so Tinder took advantage of that to launch a new modality called Festival.

For many music is a fundamental aspect when choosing a partner, since it will be something that will unite them at concerts, parties, outings with friends and more. So, why not find love with someone who is going to the same music festival And I’m sure they have a lot in common.

Under that reasoning, Tinder partnered with entertainment company Live Nationas well as with the producers of live events AEG Presents and Superstruct Entertainment to present the festival mode, a feature designed to help members find their match as they prepare for the first festival season in years.

According to data from the dating platform, 75% of singles aged 18-39 agree that being able to connect with someone online before meeting in person can take the pressure off of making a good first impression.

The festival modeavailable from April 14 at United States, Australia, France, Germany, Hungary, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom bridges the “gap between online performances and IRL hookups by allowing Tinder members to find other festival-goers before the show.”

“With nearly 1 in 3 singles (31%) planning to attend a music festival or concert this year, Festival Mode helps music lovers break the ice and connect through shared interests.”
