Tinder app registrations during EDC Las Vegas increased more than 20% and app activity increased by more than 60%. Tinder app registrations during Bonnaroo increased up to 10x and app activity increased by more than 300x. Wouldn’t it be easier to just have a festival option on Tinder? Well, now there is.


Users on Tinder can now access Festival Mode, a way to connect ahead of your favorite festivals. Just opt into Festival Mode, choose which festival(s) you’ll be attending and you’ll have a badge highlighting your upcoming festival destination. Then you’re ready to swipe, match and chat with other users attending the same festival.

Festival Mode began officially rolling out on Tinder yesterday, May 1, for the participating festivals below. Users will have access to their event-specific badges approximately three weeks prior to the start of each event.

Get swiping.
