Festival season is officially underway, and for Tinder users looking to get lucky when hitting up a festival this summer, your quest just got easier.

The dating (wink-wink) app recently announced a new feature called “Festival Mode.” Users will be able to add to their profile which festivals they’re attending this summer. This will allow users to see who will be there, connect with people before the festival and schedule their meet-ups accordingly.

Another perk of using “Festival Mode,” besides (maybe) getting laid? You’ll have the opportunity to access”exclusive VIP upgrades, swag, and more.”

“Festival Mode” will be available for all of the festivals below. Word to the wise now that Coachella is officially in the rearview: Be safe out there. No one wants to potentially become a festival herpes outbreak statistic.
