To me, the best part of any festival is the people you meet. Random run-ins with characters straight out of a Ralph Steadman painting, it can range from a ten second head massage that makes you change your faith to someone spending an hour helping you calm down that time everything became just ‘a little too real.’ These good-hearted strangers are the glue that holds together any festival and SnowGlobe was full of them. However, sometimes it is not a simple friendly interaction, sometimes they scar you, leave a wound so deep that you can’t even remember the performers you saw. It’s called festival love and it’s super serious.
At any given event there is a 10% chance of experiencing this phenomenon, with ten members in our crew, it wasn’t if it would happen, it was who would it happen to. The casualty was a young man named Tyler, one of our promoters wearing a mobile Wi-Fi unit. After being backstage for Wiz Khalifa on the first night of SnowGlobe, we decided to keep the night going and headed to the Mont Bleu Casino to check out some of their Pings. It was that fateful night that in a drunken stupor Tyler would set up a Ping entitled “Free Sexual Healing,” in a last ditch effort to meet a nice young lady to court.
The next day, as we rallied from the night before, we noticed the Ping Tyler had set up and all had a good laugh, applauding him on giving it the old college try. Thinking nothing of it he took it down and we got back on our grind. It was at some point between Robert DeLong on the main stage and GRiZ on the techibeats stage that young Tyler would see the power of FOMO Sonar. Inside the the Snowcial Lodge a few girls came to redeem a coupon for glow-in-the-dark sunglasses, Tyler was handing them their prizes when out of the blue one of them asks, “Are you Tyler?” Caught of guard, he answered in the affirmative, and she proceeded to question him about what exactly free sexual healing entailed.
They ended up talking for almost an hour and that was more than enough time for Tyler to succumb to festival love. Unfortunately, this lust would end as these things often do, separated in a crowd, never to see each other again. He knew she left that night to catch her flight home to Seattle and in his clouded thinking he hadn’t even gotten her name, let alone shared his social contact card using our app. This random SnowGlobe patron was now etched in Tyler’s mind and he needed a way to find her. Naturally he turned to what brought them together in the first place, FOMO Sonar. He decided use the Pro app and now there is a Ping in Seattle looking for a “SnowGlobe Mystery Girl.” While this is not the primary function of our app we couldn’t be happier to see it being used to try and rekindle festival love, we wish you the best of luck Tyler. Go Get her.
Whether it is free sexual healing or finding a mystery girl, a Ping can take many different forms and we encourage everyone to be creative and experiment with FOMO Sonar. #nicePING #festivallove
