As a social media platform-slash-events organiser, Radiate has several functions that connect you with events and people.
Named after the spot where you can get in close contact with fellow revellers, the Moshpit lets you view profiles one-by-one. Click “Skip” if you’d like to check more profiles. If you want what you’re seeing, select “Hey.”
The Moshpit freely suggests male and female profiles. Since Radiate is not a dating app, this means you don’t have a say in terms of preference. You meet friends or fellow party-goers regardless of sex or orientation.
- Events (Forum, People, Squads)
This directory-like feature lists down all the music festivals and raves that might interest you. Click on one, and you can select if you’re “Interested” or “Going” to check out other members who may be with you during the event.
You can join the general forum, see members who are going one-by-one (People) or join location or interest-based groups (Squads) for one event alone.
Of course, you can also directly interact with a member via messages. Apart from text, you may send emojis and even pictures for an interactive and playful conversation.
All these features are free, and we think that this freedom to access and mingle is what made the shift from social to a dating app, at least in the POV of users.
During our test period, we noticed that one event could have multiple squads all with various intentions. Locations are common, but some squads blatantly look for members who are searching for hookups or dates during the event. Join one, and you’ll meet like-minded individuals who share the same goal as you.
The flirty exchanges of messages may happen in the Squad chat, but ultimately, members who caught each other’s eye move their interactions to the messages function. Since it’s also free, users can flirt some more and plan their next steps before D-Day.
