Travis Scott partners with Fortnite to bring another epic concert. The event is expected to draw more users to the game.
Throughout the game’s new season, rumors have been spreading about an upcoming collaboration with artist Travis Scott. One particular leak shows numerous files referenced that the Texas artist appeared in the game.
Finally, after months of guessing, Epic Games have confirmed that Travis Scott will indeed take over Fortnite himself. The rapper is set to host the Astronomical event inside the game which will also feature the premiere of Scott’s new song.
Similarly to the previous Marshmello event which drove Fortnite fans crazy, players can attend the concert inside the game around the artist himself and gain in-game rewards. Players will also have the opportunity to buy a limited-edition special skin of Travis Scott as part of the Icon Series.
When is the concert?
Unlike Marshmello’s concert, players will have a few chances of tuning in to the Astronomical event. The game’s developers have confirmed that there are five showings across three days. This means everyone has a chance to check the live concert between April 23 to April 25.

How can I watch the concert?
Developers are telling players to log in the game and get to the part of the map called Sweaty Sands, 30-minutes before the scheduled concert to improve the chances of getting a limited slot. Players will need to update Fortnite to its current 12.41 version to attend the concert.
If players do not have the game yet, it is free to download across various gaming consoles, even through the users’ mobile phone and computer.
Which songs will be played?
According to online leaks, the song “Highest In The Room” will be one of the songs that will be played by Travis Scott. Aside from that, Scott will also debut a brand new song during the event. Beyond that, it would be highly likely that the artist will play other songs from his recent Astroworld album.
What are the in-game even rewards?
Players will not only enjoy the concert but will also receive special rewards when tuning in live. Developers have confirmed that each in-game viewer will receive two limited loading screens designed for the event. Besides, a specially designed Cyclone glider will also be up for grabs during the event.
Aside from these, there will also be a set of Travis Scott skins and emoticons available for purchase during the event.
