Here’s how you can attend the Metallica concert in Fortnite!

Fortnite recently unveiled a full-fledged collaboration with heavy metal band Metallica. Amid their 2024 world tour, Metallica enters Fortnite with various cosmetic items, playable in-game songs, skins themed to the four members, and much more. However, Epic Games has confirmed the rumors regarding a Metallica Fortnite concert in Chapter 5 Season 3. This article details everything we know about this event, including what to expect and when you can attend.

When is the Fortnite Metallica concert?

The event will occur on Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23, with three daily showtimes. That gives you six opportunities to catch the Metallica Fortnite concert before it concludes forever. Dubbed "Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury," This event allows Fortnite players to "experience Metallica’s music like never before."

It will take attendees through six of Metallica's popular songs, with gameplay to match the intense atmosphere.

It's currently unclear which Metallica songs the band will perform at the concert. However, the blog post explicitly referenced Master of Puppets, so you can likely expect this and perhaps Enter Sandman since it's arguably the band's most iconic song.

Although this is unconfirmed, Epic Games has announced that six Metallica Jam Tracks are coming to Fortnite Festival Season 4. If that is any indication, these could be the six songs included in the concert:

  • Enter Sandman
  • Fuel
  • Master of Puppets
  • Ride the Lightning
  • The Unforgiven
  • Wherever I May Roam
