Fortnite x The Weeknd Concert
Players will be able to experience the Fortnite x The Weeknd concert on December 9, 2023. The concert is the first in a series of concerts planned by Epic Games to launch the Fortnite Music Festival.
The Fortnite Music Festival will kick off with the Fortnite x The Weeknd concert. But fans can expect many more musicians to join the list in subsequent events. Fortnite has experimented with live concerts in the past featuring Travis Scott, Ariana Grande and more.
Built by Harmonix, the studio behind the iconic music game Rock Band, Festival marks the beginning of music gaming in Fortnite.
Epic Games is yet to confirm what music gaming in Fortnite means, but it may hint at a potential new game mode. Or it could just be a series of events where players can tune in with friends to experience a music concert but from the comfort of their homes.
Who is the Weeknd?
The Weeknd is the first artist to cross 100 million monthly listeners in Spotify’s history. His first great hit was the Wicked Games, his debut single. However, over the past decade, he has had multiple number 1 hits including Save Your Tears" and "Die for You" with Ariana Grande.
In addition to his commercial success, he has also stepped up in humanitarian efforts all over the world. The Weeknd recently announced he was donating 4 million meals to people affected in Gaza.
Fortnite players can catch the Fortnite x The Weeknd concert in-game as well as on Twitch where many players will surely stream the event live.
