Tinder’s ‘Festival Mode’ is coming to Splendour In The Grass

You heard us. Tinder’s ‘Festival Mode’ is making its Aussie debut at Splendour In The Grass this year. This means many ‘exciting’ things for your annual pilgrimage to the North Byron Parklands’ wet, muddy, and surreal music festival. By the way, did you hear about this year’s ‘Mystery Oz Act’?

Country Manager for Tinder Australia, Kristen Hardeman said, “Splendour is a rite of passage for young Australians, making it the perfect playground to launch Festival Mode”.


Nothing screams romance like mud, sweat, and MDMA: Tinder have announced that their ‘Festival Mode’ is arriving in Australia this year.

“With this feature, we are redefining the festival experience by enabling our users to make new connections before even stepping through the turnstiles and pitching their tents.

“We’re pumped to be partnering with Splendour in the Grass and are excited to see how Tinder’s new feature helps people find their crowd this winter.”

If you’re using Tinder, all you need to do is add the Splendour badge to your profile and start swiping. Whether people match with you, of course, is out of our control. Nonetheless, we wish you all the best in your festival swiping endeavours. We are sure this new development will lead to many a wholesome and lasting relationship.

For those unable to go to this year’s festival, fear not. Festival Mode will be rolling out officially across Australia on June 21.
