Finding romance modern times can be a complete minefield – with the concept of dating apps throwing a whole new curveball into the equation.

Leading the way among those dating apps for young people is Tinder – which announced it would be launching a brand new feature perfect for the summer months.

Festival Mode will let users add a badge to announce to potential partners which music festivals they will be attending over the summer.

Tinder have said in a statement: “Get on Tinder and look for the Festival Mode card. Match with it to add your festival bade to your profile, and see who’s going where.

“From there, you can also check out everyone else going to that festival, so you can match and chat before you make your flower crown.”

Included in the new options will be a number of major festivals across the UK and US, including All Points East, Parklife and The Governors Ball.


Apart from being a handy conversation starter, users may also get access to exclusive VIP upgrades, merchandise and more.

Festival Mode will begin rolling out on Tinder starting May 1, 2019 for the participating festivals.
