When the social networking app Yik Yak was launched it was hugely popular on college campus as a way to talk to (and about) the people you go to school with. Because it allows you to send anonymous messages out to a set mile radius, it made sense that it would work well in the bubble of college towns.

However, you can use Yik Yak for way more that just missed connections and finding out where to party that night.

It’s basically a crowd-sourced Google and for the purposes of music festivals (like Coachella, for instance), it’s probably your best friend.

Here’s what you do.

1) Arrive at the music festival (or your nearby hotel or house, because let’s be real, cell service at the festival is whack).

2) Have a question? Where to eat? Who to see? Does your braid look cute? Throw it onto Yik-Yak.

3) Sit back and wait for nearby ‘chella friends to fill you in.
