All you’ll need is a copy of Fortnite Battle Royale on any platform, which doesn’t cost a penny.
The event is called the Fortnite Rift Tour, and takes place between August 6 and 8.
“Take a musical journey into magical new realities where Fortnite and Ariana Grande collide,” said Fortnite creator Epic Games.
There are five different showings, and you can schedule when you want to attend with pals.
Epic Games says it’s best to arrive in Fortnite around 60 minutes before the showtime.
And the Rift Tour playlist should appear around 30 minutes before each show.
These are the event times:
- Show 1 – Friday, August 6 – 6pm NYC / 11pm London
- Show 2 – Saturday, August 7 – 2pm NYC / 7pm London
- Show 3 – Sunday, August 8 – 12am ET / 5am London
- Show 4 – Sunday, August 8 – 10am NYC / 3pm London
- Show 5 – Sunday, August 8 – 6pm NYC / 11pm London
As part of the event, there’s a new Ariana Grande outfit and Piggy Smallz Back Bling.
Travis Scott previously performed a virtual tour, and Diplo hosted a live Major Lazer concert.
Other artists who have released or shown off content in Fortnite include BTS, J Balvin, Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis and Deadmau5.
The virtual gig was previously leaked online.
Other big-name franchise tie-ups include wildly popular anime Naruta, and DC’s Justice League and Suicide Squad.
Hit Netflix series Stranger Things is also mooted for a crossover, and this has been corroborated by a separate leak.
Of course, Epic Games hasn’t formally confirmed that any of these events are taking place.
But the company regularly hosts Fortnite events, so it’s likely there are big plans in the making.
