Fortnite Rift Tour is the next Fortnite in-game event, and it's going to include a performance from a "record-breaking superstar" in addition to quests and rewards for players to complete and collect. Here's what you need to know about the event.

Fortnite Rift Tour: When Is It, How to Watch, Who is Performing

Fortnite Rift Tour is slated to kick off Aug. 6 and continue through Aug. 8, but the concert itself will take place at different times based on the player's region:

  • The Americas: Aug. 6 (6 p.m. EDT)
  • Global: Aug. 7 (1 p.m. EDT)
  • Asia & Oceania: Aug. 8 (12 p.m. EDT)
  • EU & ME: Aug. 8 (10 a.m. EDT)
  • The Americas: Aug. 8 (6 p.m. EDT)

To watch the event, you'll need to log into the game ahead of the scheduled time for your region and find the playlist for the Rift Tour, which will appear about 30 minutes before the concert's start time. You can save the date in-game by heading to the Rift Tour section of the Fortnite lobby, which will notify you at the event's start time and tell you which of your friends is set to attend.

Epic Games has yet to officially confirm the performer (or performers) for Rift Tour, but data mining has revealed Ariana Grande will play a concert during the event.

In addition to watching the live show, players can complete quests to earn rewards. Those quests are as follows:

  • Interact with the Rift Tour posters
  • Use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the party UFO
  • Save the Date in the Rift Tour tab and play a match
  • Attend the Rift Tour
