Losing your mates, your tent, your car etc. are a thing of the past with SearchParty 2.0. We’ve kicked it up a notch and added some of our best ideas to the feature set. Now on Android!

Features You Need this Festival Season:


Leave the breadcrumbs at the campsite because SearchParty is here to help with our best feature yet! Pinning.

Pin your tent as soon as you arrive at the campsite and let those worries of getting lost in a field of tents at midnight slip away.

There’s no need for drunken Chinese whispers with old mate who can’t remember the agreed meetup point. With pinning, just pop a custom pin down at your chosen meetup point in your Party and at any moment of the event you and your crew can locate that exact pin on the map.

Pins can be public or private – so you can show your meetup point to your crew, and keep your tent location just for you and your bed buddy.

Online/Offline status

We’ve taken the guess work out of searching for your mates. This new status feature works by adding either a green and red badge next to a user to show you when they’re online or offline.

Individual Nudging

With the click of a button you can now nudge an individual member in a Party. Old mate isn’t online when you need him the most? Give him a nudge and make sure he hops back on and gives you the attention you deserve.


No more lost messages in a Party of 20+ with the new mentions feature. If you need to get a specific message to a Party member you can now @mention them and they’ll instantly get the notification.


Not sure who’s in this Party of 100? Save time with the search function allowing you to use the search bar to find a specific user instead of scrolling through the entire list of members in the Party.

Need a reason to test out the new app?

SearchParty isn’t just for festivals, you can use the app on a night out or even just in a busy carpark. For all the ways to use SearchParty check out our blog: Not Just For Festivals.
