'Fortnite' In-Game Musical Rift Tour Headlined by Ariana Grande

by Rainier on Aug. 2, 2021 @ 1:05 a.m. PDT

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus.

The last one standing wins.

From August 6 to August 8 players can jump in to Fortnite for an experience like no other, filled with magical new realities and a record-breaking superstar.

Grammy winning and multi-platinum artist Ariana Grande will be the headline performer in the Rift Tour, a musical journey that kicks off at 6pm ET, August 6 inside Fortnite. 

Building on and incorporating other celebrated Fortnite moments, the Rift Tour will begin with experiences that pair popular tracks with moments based on elements from the game. Players will be able to travel side by side with their friends on a journey to magical new realities where Fortnite and Ariana collide.

“Working with Epic and the Fortnite team to bring my music to life inside the game has been so fun and such an honor,” says Ariana. “I can’t wait to join my fans and see all of your reactions to such an unforgettable, magical journey to new realities.”

“Fortnite is a place for the imagination and the impossible. With the Rift Tour, we’re bringing a musical journey to life that players can experience, feel, and join alongside their friends,” says Phil Rampulla, Head of Brand at Epic Games, “We’re so grateful to have an iconic superstar like Ariana Grande and her team join us for a musical experience at metaverse scale, and for players and fans alike to experience the Rift Tour!”

Ensuring that fans around the world can catch the Rift Tour, the experience spans five showtimes over three days. We recommend fans arrive in Fortnite 60 minutes before showtime, and the Rift Tour Playlist should be live 30 minutes before each show. Before Ariana’s arrival, the Rift Tour kicks off with Fortnite-themed experiences -- pairing popular tracks with moments based on elements from the game.

Times include:

Show 1
Friday, August 6 @ 6PM ET

Show 2
Saturday, August 7 @ 2PM ET

Show 3
Sunday, August 8 @ 12AM ET

Show 4

The Rift Tour is better if you travel side by side with your friends! Visit RiftTour.com for more details on the Rift Tour schedule, or use the in-game Rift Tour tab. The Rift Tour tab allows you and your friends to schedule the showtimes you plan to attend, as well as keep up-to-speed on the latest Rift Tour Quests.
