Anderson .Paak Will Host A Virtual Concert In Fortnite

Anderson .Paak is the next artist to have an in-game concert in Fortnite after Travis Scott.


Epic Games announced on Twitter that the next artists to hold a Fortnite concert are Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals. The performance will take place live on September 19 at 5 PM ET and will be played again on September 19 at 11 PM ET and September 20 at 1 PM ET.

Travis Scott's virtual performance in Fortnite was a remarked success, and it makes sense that the battle-royale game will continue to partner with artists to hold in-game concerts, especially since COVID-19 has made real-life concerts impossible for the foreseeable future. A staggering amount of people--12.3 million, to be exact--logged into the game at the same time to watch Travis Scott's performance. A free Astroworld Cyclone glider and two free loading screens was also given to anybody who attended the concert, and it remains to be seen if Fortnite will offer similar perks for Anderson .Paak's concert attendees.

To watch Anderson .Paak's performance, Fortnite players can jump into Party Royale. To do so, you can press the Change box in the Lobby screen's bottom-right corner, and select the Party Royale mode from the available options. After the selection, you'll be back at the Lobby screen. Press play and go to the Main Stage for the performance. The map button in Party Royale can help you orient yourself and locate the Main Stage.

The concert will be available for Android, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC players.
