Researchers from Leiden University’s medical school are carrying out dna checks at this year’s Lowlands festival to find out if dna dating could be a realistic option. The answer is in your dna,’ according to a promo text for the research on the Lowlands website. One month later, couples will hear if they are meant to be together and singles will be offered the contact information of their perfect match.
The festival now over 150 years old attracts up to 60000 people from all over the world, who come for the music, the dancing and the ‘craic’.
Dancing takes place in venues all over town and in the newly reopened Spa Wells.
Ultimately, the researchers hope to win more attention for the current developments in dna research.
