Check it out from August 6-8.
Fortnite’s next big concert is here, or at least it will be later this week. The existence of the Ariana Grande Fortnite concert has been something of a poorly hidden secret over the last few weeks, as leaks and court documents revealed that Epic was working on concerts for both Grande and Lady Gaga. But while performers like Marshmello showed up in creative mode live video feeds, Grande’s concert appears to be closer in style to the Travis Scott concert from last year. Big theatrics.
A trailer posted to YouTube finally confirms what we all knew. The Ariana Grande concert will run from August 6 through the 8 with shows divvied up between each region. It should be noted that when Epic suggests showing up at least an hour early with the queue going live 30 minutes before, that is not an exaggeration.
Fortnite’s major events including the Travis Scott concert and the last few end-of-season events locked off at full capacity within minutes of opening. Epic also has a habit of opening the queues a few minutes before the anticipated timeline and in a few cases hitting capacity before their estimated opening time even began.
