Festivals and live events are the perfect place to meet new friends and share great memories together. Some people even take it one step further and meet the love of their lives, like [these people who met their significant other at a music festival]. But if you’re anything like me and can’t seem to find Mr or Mrs Right, you might need a little bit of help. Dating experts Match and Festicket created a unique experience for singles at one of our new event partners, Margarita Rumble, to throw a memorable night full of margaritas, laughter and of course - single people!
Match’s singles event was part of Margarita Rumble’s VIP session, which meant that guests were able to experience the festival an hour earlier than everyone else – in other words, more time to enjoy the cocktails! We gathered in the VIP area to meet the rest of the group, who immediately and naturally clicked with conversations flowing, which wasn’t difficult considering the group were all there for their love of events and, of course, margaritas.
In an exclusive offer for just the Match singles, we hopped from bar to bar where we were taught by the best in the industry on how to make delicious cocktails, followed by giving it a go ourselves. A DJ spinning house and disco tunes in the background gave it a real ‘fiesta’ feeling too. The masterclass experience was fun, very inclusive and now we can show off our margarita mixology skills at parties.
It was then time for the rest of the festival to open to standard ticket-holders, and next up was a round of the traditional Mexican ‘Loteria Bingo’, with a high energy party twist - no ‘two fat ladies’ or bleak looking halls here! The host and assistants were witty, fabulously dressed and sprung quickfire games onto the crowd including a dance-off round to the ‘Friends’ theme tune. One of the singles even won a £20 voucher for winning one of the wacky games.
With the event coming to an end, the group of singles - and even a potential match! - decided to continue the party in Manchester city center. Match offering the chance to meet other singles who share similar interests in a fun, casual and interactive experience like Margarita Rumble, or any other food and music event for that matter, creates a unique opportunity to make memories together without the typical ‘first date’ awkwardness. If you’re single and looking to find the one at a festival or live event this summer, keep an eye out for Match’s event listings on their website.
