Top 5 Tips to Flirting at a Festival This Summer

With all the joy and excitement kindled by the festival's energy, restraining yourself from flirting becomes a challenge! 

Don't worry; we aren't here to tell you not to do it. Just the opposite; we can't wait to guide you through it!

Mind that at festivals full of competition ready to hunt your object of interest in a heartbeat, it may be helpful to arm yourself with a few shiny pick-up lines. Otherwise, start up a conversation and let the chemistry build organically.

Do make the first move

While on other occasions, we would encourage you to take it easy instead of catching desperately every chance you get, festivals aren't the right time to let your flirting skills go unnoticed.

Here, you need to act fast, or your big love (for tonight) will disappear from your eyesight before you can say Justin Bieber.

So, don't be afraid to make the first move. Then, repeat until you get the expected outcome.

Festivals are typically filled with like-minded individuals in a great mood (typically), which is the best circumstance for happy flirting all night or longer. 

We bet others are just as eager to flirt as you are! 

Remember that there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Everyone is different, and that's one of the reasons flirting is so much fun!

So instead of waiting around for someone else to hit on you, take charge and start the conversation yourself.


Make your interest clear

This point is similar to the first one but applies to different situations.

By making the first move, we refer to talking to people you are interested in or approaching newborn heroes of your naughty desires in chosen other ways. 

By suggesting you make it clear that you're interested, we mean activating a wide range of intended and subliminal signals that your body and mind send to fellow festival participants. You want to say "sex" with all your being without actually saying it.

In short—let them KNOW you are in for a juicy flirting game!

Your body language speaks volumes when it comes to flirting, so make sure it's sending out all the right signals. Smile, make eye contact, and let your hands wander if it’s time to take it further.


Have fun

You went to the festival to have a good time, so don't get discouraged if a heavy load of insignificant problems tries to chase you and stop you from relaxing. Let the music guide your senses. That's all you have to do. 

Yet, also, don't put too much pressure on yourself. Flirting is not part of your to-do list! If it doesn't come naturally, try again later and instead focus on dancing like nobody's watching.

With all the sexual desires and one-night-stand potentials around, festivals are the perfect place to set yourself free and find someone special for a hot night under the starry summer heaven. 

But before you dive into the possibilities headfirst, take some precautions to stay safe and healthy. 


Be safe and aware of your sexual health 

Sounds like the most boring topic? Not really if you consider what your life will look like if you catch something from your festival's ONS.

Festivals can be an incredibly inspiring sexual environment, but if you take precautions to protect yourself from any possible risks, the potential for the orgasmic feast will triple!

So, carry condoms with you if things get heated, and have open discussions with potential partners about sexual health before engaging in any sexual activities. We tackle chatting about tricky topics in "How to Be Effective at Communicating Your Sexual Needs to a One-Night Stand?."

But it's not only a matter of sexual health. Music festivals can get crowded and wild, so you want to stay alert about your safety in general.  

Know your limits when drinking alcohol, stay aware of your surroundings, and trust your instincts concerning potential partners—the latter can be a surprisingly effective saviour. 

If you're uncomfortable with someone, don't hesitate to leave. The night is short. You don't have to explain yourself.


Keep your expectations realistic

That’s a funny one, given that music festivals aim to be the most otherworldly man-made circumstances possible.

Yet, when it comes to flirting and having sex in one of our love capsules, you may need some grounding before or/and after the sex act. 

Let's be real. A festival fling isn't likely to turn into anything more than a one-night stand. Everyone, by and large, knows that, yet some of us switch to daydreaming in the meantime anyway.

So, especially if you're looking for something long-term in your everyday life, keep your desires realistic when engaging in sex acts at the festival.


Top tips for flirting at the festival? Relax and have our article above in mind.

Flirting can be fun if you let yourself be in the moment and enjoy it. It doesn't have to be serious or intense, just lighthearted and playful. A joke here, a teasing comment there—it's all part of the dance. 

Flirting is not the same as a one-night stand (however, it could lead to one). So, be respectful of other people's boundaries, especially if they initially seem interested but then change their minds. What they wanted was just a flirt, and it's totally fine! 

Get out there and enjoy yourself —who knows what kind of sparks might fly?
