This way, you don't necessarily have to wait for yourself to reach the festival venue or be in close proximity with people you want to match with. Tinder wants you to get ahead of yourself and try to match with like-minded people.

Once your profile has a festival badge, Tinder will start suggesting profiles of people attending the same event. Festival Mode has gone live on Tinder starting today. users will have access to event-specific badges. Tinder has event-specific badges for EDC Las Vegas, Bonnaroo, British Summer Time and EDC, Orlando. In India, Tinder allows users to access festival badges for Bacardi NH7 Weekender in Pune.
