Radiate is a mobile app that connects people going to the same music festival as one another. They are branded as "not a dating app", although they have been compared to Tinder, especially with Tinder's introduction of Festival Mode.[1] Insomniac, producer of Electric Daisy Carnival has said "One of the primary reasons people go to festivals is for the community, and that’s what Radiate provides."[2]

Radiate has primarily been used around large music festivals, such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, and Lollapalooza.[3] Recently, Radiate has also been adding artist tours, including partnerships with artists such as Dillon Francis[4] and Flosstradamus[5].

History[edit]

Radiate was founded by Michael Tom and Philip Butler in 2015.[6][7]

They debuted at the electronic dance music festival Electric Adventure in August 2015.[8][9].

On May 27th, 2019, Radiate was featured on Product Hunt.[10]

Features[edit]

Users can opt into events, and then post images and text for others within the event to see. Users can anonymously say "Hey" to each other, and if both users say "Hey", a chat will open up between them. In addition to the forums, users can also "swipe" through other users, using a mechanic similar to Tinder.
