A new way to meet people. #ItsNotTinderForFestivals

4.9/5
About

Love this app. It’s made my festival experiences so much better, especially as someone who doesn’t have a lot of friends that like going to festivals. Now I h e a whole new friend group that I made from using Radiate. It’s been awesome being part of the Radiate community and way more people need to hear about it!

Pros:

Connect with likeminded people Make festival buddies Festivals are more fun with friends! Great UX/UI Have made lasting friendships

Cons:

None that I can think of

Not just for meeting at a festival, but I went from living in New York to living in Kansas and then Kentucky. It’s a great way to find people you can connect with on more than a surface level when feeling uneasy about a new place.

Pros:

I’ve met some of my best friends using this app. It’s a great way to connect and find people nearby with similar interests.

Cons:

Nothing, I’ve had a great experience.

Spreading good vibes

This app works it’s wonders and forever thankful for the things it’s done to my life. I’m forever grateful to be a part of this community and it’s amazing people in it ♥️

Pros:

This community is nothing but positive and I’ve always seen people trying to be there for those that need a little uplifting.

Cons:

Not a single negative thing that I’m able to think of

Cons:

Also finding people to share rooms or go to fests/shows with if you go alone, and finding events

Pros:

Great for selling tickets, meeting carpools, meeting new friends that are into your music/go to fests too,

Cons:

It's still a small team working on the app, so some glitchy issues but there aren't any other apps like it.

We’re going to make the app soooo smooth and bug free once we have a few more folks working on it :) thanks for the feedback!!

Downloaded the app at a festival last month after seeing a sign for it.

Pros:

I’ve met some great folks thru the app. Easy to navigate as well.

Cons:

I can’t think of a better alternative.

Radiate all the way.

I’ve been using Radiate for over Two Years now and over the course of those two years I’ve met countless friends and have been able to share events with people that they would not have known about otherwise. The festival forums are a great way to communicate with other people about the weekend and the Local tab is useful to find out what’s going on in your area. I made a local group chat about Seven months ago for people in South Florida to have local meetups at events and today we are over 270 members strong! Can’t thank Radiate enough for it’s existence honestly. The paid features such as Radiate Glow & Heydar’s don’t ruin the experience of using the app for free but are a great way to support the developers! And they need all the support they can get with the Android app right now lol. Slowly but surely it will catch up! If you rave and are looking for some new friends you should download this app A.S.A.P!

Pros:

Incredibly executed concept, you can actually meet people here unlike other dating oriented apps, group chats, event forums.

Cons:

Android App is really behind on updates lol. Also for some reason messages/chats take much longer to load on iOS compared to Android.

Thanks so much for the feedback Antonio! The Android app is 100% behind on updates :/ sawwwwyy :) We're doing our best to get an update out for it soon though! We're a three person team so we tend to have to make sacrifices on which platform to develop for since we don't have the team power to work on both platforms simultaneously but soon enough we will ;) Truly appreciate you sticking with us through this!!
Kind, fun, genuine, considerate

Radiate has helped make possible the forming of great friendships and connections for many of us who love to travel to various music festivals. Using this app can help make much more feasible ways to make festival experiences more achievable. For instance when traveling to festivals, oftentimes it’s far cheaper to share hotel or lodging costs and it’s also safer and more enjoyable to share the experiences with others who may otherwise be going it alone. Radiate helps create so many of these connections that lead to better experiences.

Pros:

The ability to connect and reconnect with people in the music and festival scene.

Cons:

Messages could load a little quicker.

Never too old

Highly suggested

Pros:

Great app for those in the rave community. Great way to connect with people with like minds.

Cons:

Simplify it a bit. User interface seems a bit bulky . I feel due to trying to squeeze so much into one app.

Thanks for the feedback Anthony! There is A LOT in the app haha We'll see if we can simplify it a bit :)

I used this for the first time when I went to a fesival in Kansas City. I made a whole new crew of friends and have been using it since. Great app if your going to a festival where you don’t know many people

Pros:

The community here is awesome. They get the vibe, know the artists, and are quick to help newcomers. The UX Is very easy to navigate

Cons:

I can’t think of any!

I went to my second festival ever alone and met skone on radiate to hang out with. We’ve now been really good friends for over a year and I have radiate to thank for that!

Pros:

I love all the different features in one app! There’s a feed, the groupchats, and the moshpit!! And the profile is fun to create!!

Cons:

I’d like more, smaller local festivals in Canada but other than that it’s great

More small local festivals in Canada coming your way soon :) Thanks for the feedback!

Why surround yourself with strangers when you can surround yourself with new friends? This is a no brainer app for festivals to have a little bit more fun

Pros:

I love how Radiate helps me meet new people

Cons:

It would be crazy if I could turn on my location at a festival and have food or water delivered straight to me
