To make sure you don’t miss a beat, here are some tips straight from the Epic website:

  1. Download Fortnite for free: Fortnite is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and PC.
  2. Download the Latest Update: Ahead of the Rift Tour’s first show on August 6, make sure you’ve downloaded the v17.30 game update. Give yourself time to download the game so you’re ready to go before the show.
  3. Get in the Game Early! We recommend loading up Fortnite 60 minutes before your selected showtime. You can expect the Rift Tour Playlist to go live 30 minutes ahead of each show. Note: Our goal is to accommodate everyone possible, but if capacity is reached, please join us for one of the other shows.
  4. Encore Shows! The Rift Tour dates are NOT region locked, but we’ve selected times to make sure everyone has a chance to attend. 

Epic also recommends using the Rift Tour tab within the game which will allow you and friends to schedule which showtimes to attend, as well as track the latest Rift Tour Quests. 

Dating back to 2019, the first virtual concert held in Fortnite was by Marshmallow. The graphical and creative advancements Epic has made since then, especially for the Travis Scott concert, have been astronomical (pun not intended).

Fortnite’s live events of music and pop culture are really just something to experience. If you’re a fan of Ariana Grande or gaming in general, be sure to not miss out on the Rift Tour Concert this weekend!
