Romance is alive and well.

Good news for those looking for a more efficient way to hunt down a potential hookup (or hookups).

Earlier this month, Tinder announced its ‘Festival Mode’ feature, helping users navigate their music fest flings.

Up until now, the feature had only been released for music lovers in the US and UK. Now, it’s time to welcome its official Aus debut.

Those heading to Splendour in the Grass this year with Tinder accounts, of course will be able to test ‘Festival Mode’ for themselves, before the event even kicks off.

If you’re not already up to speed, here’s how it goes down. To connect with potential festival-goers, you’ll need to add a badge to your Tinder profile, which will be active three weeks before Splendour begins. That gives you enough time to weed through the mix, and plan your hookups accordingly.

Along with the feature itself, Tinder will also set up on-site activations so you can suss out your matches. We’re not sure yet what this involves, but we’re hoping there won’t be any awkward introductions.

Users can start swiping in ‘Festival Mode’ from June 21.
