Dating app Tinder has added a new ‘festival mode’, which allows users to connect with other festival attendees before the event starts.

The app has partnered with a series of festivals, including All Points East, Parklife, British Summer Time and Lovebox.

It can recognise when users have purchased tickets for these festivals, and places a festival badge on a user’s profile accordingly.

As users swipe left or right, they then have a chance of finding others who are attending the same event.

The badges are active for approximately three weeks prior to the start of the event.

The new mode was announced in a post on the official Tinder blog, which you can find here.
