Festival fans looking to get hit by cupid’s arrow amidst a sea of neon-clad ravers are now in luck–a Dutch startup called Glance has created a dating app for music festivals.
In a similar style to apps like Tinder or Grindr, you swipe right for someone you like and left for someone you don’t. What sets it apart, however, is that Glance targets music lovers. Glance lists different festivals across the world, and you can select which ones you will be attending. Once you have selected the festivals, the app matches you up against potential hookups who have selected the same festivals as you. As the official slogan says, “Glance before you dance.”
App designer Jeron Jochems had this to say about the product:
“Glance connects you to likeminded people attending the same festivals and club nights as you. Discover events near you, attend to see who’s going and anonymously like to break the ice. If someone likes you back it’s a match and you could go together! Bye bye awkward dates with people you have nothing in common with. Hello event-driven dating.”
At the current time, the app is focusing on the Dutch/Amsterdam festival market, but expect it to start making waves abroad soon. You can now download the app on iTunes here.
