After years of waiting, the Fortnite Festival concert is finally coming to the Battle Royale in Chapter 5.
Concerts are the best live events in Fortnite history. Everyone remembers the Travis Scott and Ariana Grande concerts for their flashy production and cool rewards. Despite their successes, though, Epic Games has not thrown a true concert live event in quite some time. As fans await the big events planned for the next Chapter, new leaks revealed a Fortnite Festival is officially on its way.
Here's everything we know about the possible upcoming concert, including its start date.
Here's When the Fortnite Festival Concert is Coming to Chapter 5
The Fortnite Festival concert is coming to Fortnite Chapter 5 on Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023, at 9 a.m. ET. Although the leaks do not offer a ton of information, we know the event comes with exclusive rewards that will unlock at the same time.
Fortnite leaker, HYEPX, posted, "There will be a Fortnite Festival (Concert?) In-Game on December 9th." A photo from the iconic Fortnite Travis Scott concert appears below the announcement, teasing the possibility of another showstopping musical event.
Despite reports of a concert, though, another reliable Fortnite leaker, iFireMonkey, posted that the Fortnite Festival might be a new game mode instead. They revealed, "Fortnite Festival is the Harmonix mode being worked on which should be that Rhythm Game."
The true nature of the Fortnite Festival will remain unknown until Epic Games unveils more details about the Chapter 5 event.
Is a Juice WRLD Concert Coming to Fortnite Chapter 5?
No, a Juice WRLD concert is not coming to Fortnite Chapter 5. After Epic Games used Juice WRLD's song, Lucid Dreams, in the Fortnite OG trailer, many fans speculated that the Battle Royale would honor the artist in a future concert.
Unfortunately, reliable Fortnite leaker, ShiinaBR, posted, "An Epic Games employee has confirmed to me that a Juice WRLD concert is NOT planned at the moment."
It looks like the star of the Fortnite Festival will indeed be a surprise come December 2023.
