Vinylly Announces Partnership with ZONA Music Festival

Music-Focused App Brings Singles Together for Two-Day Phoenix Concert Event

Phoenix, AZ, November 17, 2022 Vinylly, the free dating app that matches users based on music compatibility, is proud to announce its partnership with the 2022 ZONA Music Festival. The inaugural two-day concert event, presented by Psyko Steve Presents, with headliners including Beach House, Portugal. The Man, and Bleachers will be held on December 3rd and 4th at Phoenix’s Margaret T. Hance Park. 

“By partnering with Vinylly, single music fans can connect before and during the festival,” said Stephen Chilton, President of Psyko Steve Presents. “Data shows that many concert goers are not likely to go to a concert alone and this is an obstacle that Vinylly can help concert promoters overcome.”

Music fans seeking concert buddies (or relationships) can join the Vinylly community to meet people, as the app provides a natural way to chat about music and buy concert tickets. Vinylly’s partnership with Psyko Steve Presents will feature a dedicated viewing deck at the festival where single music fans can mix, mingle, and potentially find their match. 

Vinylly provides a legitimate avenue for users to start authentic and meaningful relationships that many of the mainstream dating apps don’t,” said Rachel Van Nortwick, Vinylly’s CEO and Founder. “The science behind how music creates positive reactions in the brain and then gets amplified by sharing it with others sets the stage to use music preferences to find compatibility with a potential mate.”

Inspired by her love for music, Van Nortwick founded Vinylly in 2016. The app launched in 2019 and  has been reinventing dating for music lovers since, helping them connect on a more personal level as opposed to relying on superficial profiles and swipes that often lead nowhere. Vinylly has grown over 12000% since its launch.

“At Vinylly, we also value working with music promoters, artists and labels to reach a community of raving music fans and return value back to users in the form of music discovery, tour announcements and discounts on tickets,” said Van Nortwick.

About Vinylly

Vinylly is a free inclusive dating app that matches users through a proprietary music profile generator or if a user chooses, an analysis of their streaming history. These combined with a few questions about the role music plays in their lives, enables Vinylly’s algorithm to provide “high volume” matches. Users have the ability to create and edit their playlists and to browse matches and press “play” when they want to connect, as well as chat and get concert tickets for first dates all without having to leave the app. Available on the U.S. and Canadian AppStores, Vinylly was recently recognized by Mashable as one of the “8 dating apps that are bucking against Tinder’s model.” To learn more, visit www.vinyllyapp.com.
