There’s no better way to enjoy singledom than with live music in the sun, surrounded by a bunch of beautiful people. And it just got even better with Festival Mode: Tinder’s new feature to help your newly-single self thrive this summer. The way it works is to swipe right when you see the Festival Mode card pop up in your app and add your festival badge to your profile. Now you’re set up to swipe away and find your future love from the sleuth of fellow festival-goers. Get ready to match and chat ahead of the big day, meaning you can give more attention to those dance moves when the first set drops.
Festival Mode debuted at Splendour in the Grass and will be back again for Beyond the Valley and Falls Festival. If you’re lucky enough to have scored a ticket to one of these epic festivals, not only should you start swiping now, but you can also score access to exclusive experiences once you’re there. For BTV attendees, that means cooling down at the Tinder Beach Club with your new matches, as well as the chance to vibe to an exclusive DJ set.
Now we’ve sorted your dating life, let us run you through our picks of this year’s Beyond the Valley, so you can impress your new beau with your musical prowess and excellent taste. The lineup’s absolutely stacked, with something to keep even the pickiest muso happy. There’ll be time to rock out, a few moments to slow it down and plenty of chances for a boogie. You’re not gonna want to miss international heavyweights like Tyler the Creator, Snakehips and a live set from Floating Points. Then you’ve got some of Australia’s best talent taking the stage, with the likes of Rüfüs Du Sol, Hayden James and Matt Corby all choosing to spend their last moments of 2019 with us.
If you’re heading to Falls, we suggest you get yourself in front of stage for big names like Milky Chance, Halsey and Disclosure. Be sure to add Baker Boy, Vera Blue, G Flip and Crooked Colours to your must-see list too.
