In celebration of International Friendship Day, we’re inviting users along to experience Bumble in real life.
You may have seen some of our famous Hive pop-ups in cities like New York, London, Los Angeles, or Toronto. This Saturday 3 August we’ll be opening the doors to the Bumble BFF Hive in Australia for the first time.
The Bumble BFF Hive will be an ‘IRL’ version of the BFF friend-finding mode in our app. It’s completely free for users who show their Bumble Date, Bumble BFF or Bumble Bizz profile; just show it at the door! Guests will be treated to exclusive experiences from our brand partners:
Every part of the experience will be made to ‘gram, with an interactive friendship quiz, a Bumble BFF Type Room where you can write a letter to a friend, and a custom-made four-poster bed for the ultimate sleepover-themed selfie with your besties. Be sure not to miss brands popping up with us, including customisable leather goods brand The Daily Edited, maker of sonic facial cleansers Foreo, eyewear label of the moment Soda Shades, and Australian denim label ABrand.
A good group of friends is crucial to a happy and healthy life, so every element of the event has been designed to help Bumble users make authentic connections and walk out the door having made new friends.
Not in Melbourne? Nothing to worry about! Bumble users around Australia will have the opportunity to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Melbourne to attend the event by matching with the Bumble BFF Hive profile in our app between the 25th and 30th of July and completing the competition form.
The Bumble BFF Hive will be open from 11am – 8pm on Saturday 3rd August at Carousel, Albert Park, 22 Aughtie Drive, Albert Park Lake. Carousel is a 9 minute walk from Middle Park station, a 10 minute walk from Wright Street station, or a 12 minute walk from Aughtie Dr/Albert Rd station.
