This isn’t the first music event to take place in the digital landscape of Fortnite. Over the recent years, several musical events have taken place, including Travis Scott, Tones and I, and Ariana Grande.

Though the music line-up hasn’t been released, it’s expected that people will be able to hear Harry Styles, Billi Eilish, The Weekend, Swedish House Mafia, and more! It should be fun.
