BTS Concert Kicks Off In Fortnite Tonight
The K-pop boy band's choreography music video for "Dynamite" will premiere in the battle royale game.
Another artist is performing in Fortnite, and this time it's the biggest boy band in the world. BTS will premiere the choreography music video for their recently released song, "Dynamite," in Fortnite's Party Royale mode on September 25 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET.
If you want to dance along, two emotes with "Dynamite" dance moves will be available. A Tropical Remix listening party will also take place at the end of the event.
The virtual doors actually open at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET, just like you'd see at most real venues. You'll have plenty of time to get situated before it kicks off.

BTS joins the ever-expanding roster of artists holding virtual concerts in Fortnite. Anderson .Paak performed in the game on September 19 and Travis Scott also held a pretty successful virtual concert in April. With the global pandemic making real-life concerts impossible in many places, it's likely we'll see more musicians find new ways to perform for their fans.
To watch BTS' music video, 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. Due to the ongoing lawsuit between Apple and Epic, iOS and macOS owners will not be able to watch BTS' music video.
