Someone has made a Tinder for festivals and it could change your summer

Glastonbury 1

Festival season is upon us. It's the torrential rain that's the give away.

You've bought the cheap tent, come up with an ingenious ploy for sneaking in four litres of cider (hollowed out bread loaves) - now all you need is a special someone to share the magical, shower-free event with. 

You could embark on the fruitless drift around the peripheries of an acoustic set in search of a soul mate to spend your field-bound nights with, or you could use some smart tech. Like the Prelinks app.

Prelinks

Prelinks has the look and feel of that zeitgeist of the dating app movement, Tinder, with a specific focus on the summer's upcoming festival season: download the app; tick off the events you're attending and then begin swiping through fellow attendees in the hopes of 'matching' with other event goers. 

The key to Prelinks is in its name - it aims to ignite a spark of shared passion for the ballads of Adele before you enter the mud of Worthy Farm. By matching with a festival-goer before the event, you'll be able to arrange a meet-up at a particular stage and bond over lukewarm beer. 

You can browse through all the festivals that Prelinks will be supporting here, but it's a pretty comprehensive list, including:

  • Wildlife
  • Field Day
  • Parklife
  • Glastonbury
  • Hideout
  • Exit
  • Wireless
  • T in the Park
  • Sunfall
  • Latitude
  • Lovebox
  • Secret Garden Party
  • Tramlines
  • Y-Not
  • Eastern Electrics
  • Boardmasters
  • Reading
  • Leeds
  • Bestival

You can download it to get swiping here. Or just go for the music. Your call.
