Cheap Live Nation tickets for Tinder users
Live Nation has announced a new partnership with mobile dating app Tinder, providing users of the app with US$30 tickets to concerts by the Chainsmokers, Asap Ferg and more for an “epic first date”.
To access the discounted tickets, Tinder users in the United States must swipe right when they come across a tour profile card. A link will then lead to a landing page featuring all tour and ticket information. The promotion will run until the end of October.
Tickets are available in select US cities for twelve concert tours for shows by the Chainsmokers, Asap Ferg, Logic, Lukas Graham, Meek Mill, Gesaffelstein, Gloria Trevi, Gryffin the Head and the Heart, Sabrina Claudio and Young Thug.
Users can also access discounted tickets for the alchemy tour, featuring Nghtmare and Slander.
The initiative is not the first partnership between the dating app and live music giants. In May, Tinder teamed up with Live Nation and AEG to create “Festival Mode”, allowing users to match with fellow festivalgoers before attending events in the United States, the UK and Australia.

Tinder for festivals goes down under
Location-based mobile Tinder is bringing its “Festival Mode” feature to Australia, announcing a partnership with Live Nation-promoted Splendour in the Grass festival
Festival Mode, a collaboration between Tinder and live music giants Live Nation and AEG, allows users to match with fellow festivalgoers before setting foot on the festival site.
Festival Mode debuted at UK festival All Points East and Hangout in the United States earlier this month.
“Splendour is a rite of passage for young Australians, making it the perfect playground to launch Festival Mode,” says Tinder Australia country manager Kristen Hardeman.
“With this feature, we are redefining the festival experience by enabling our users to make new connections before even stepping through the turnstiles and pitching their tents.

“We’re pumped to be partnering with Splendour in the Grass and are excited to see how Tinder’s new feature helps people find their crowd this winter,” adds Hardeman.
Attendees of Splendour in the Grass, which this year sold out a record 42,500 tickets, will be able to add the official festival badge to their profile, allowing them to view and match with other Tinder users who are attending. The function can be switched on and off as the user pleases.
The feature will begin rolling out in Australia on 21 June.
Other participating festivals include British Summer Time Hyde Park, Love Box and Parklife in the UK, and Bonnaroo, Governors’ Ball and Electric Daisy Carnival in the United States.
