This "Tinder for festivals" app will help anyone find a concert buddy
Coachella 2016 may have come and gone, but summer is only just beginning. There are plenty of concerts and festivals out there, and although you’ll have a blast listening to your fave bands no matter what, it’s always extra fun with a buddy. But what do you do if you don’t have anyone to go with? Well, there’s an app for that, because it’s 2016: Tinder for festivals, or Prelinks.
“Prelinks. . . makes going out better,” the app’s website explains. “Select your favourite upcoming club nights and gigs to view profiles of others attending. Swipe right on the profiles you like, and match with those who like you back. Finally, chat with them before the event and meet them there. Easy peasy.”
Using the app, you can swipe, Tinder-style, to find your new concert partner — whether that’s a ~romantic~ partner or just a buddy to rock out with, because everything’s more fun with a friend.
The app also can be used for popular gigs and nightclubs. Currently, Prelinks doesn’t seem to cover a whole ton of events, but we’re hoping they branch out soon, because this is a *brilliant* idea for finding a Bonnaroo bud.
