Ariana Grande will headline Fornite’s Rift Tour 5 in-game concert series, which will take place between August 6 and 8.
Last week, Epic Games teased that a “record-breaking superstar” would be headlining its next concert series; Fortnite’s upcoming Rift Tour 5.
Following weeks of rumors and leaks, we have confirmed that the mystery performer is none other than Ariana Grande.
The concert series will consist of five shows going live between August 6 and 8, with 5 events across different time zones. Epic Games recommends showing up early to secure your spot as previous events have filled up quickly in the past.
Epic Games says that “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.”
Users will also be able to purchase a skin based on the singer starting from August 4 (8 PM ET), when Arianna Grande will enter the Fortnite Icon Series, a collection featuring real-world celebrities like LeBron James and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. This effectively means you can go to Grande’s concert looking like Grande herself.
Furthermore, players who attend the concert will also get a special umbrella glider, and monthly subscribers to the Fortnite Crew packs will receive exclusive bonuses for attending – including a rainbow variant of the concert umbrella.

Fortnite’s launch of the concert series builds on the massive successes of past in-game concerts such as that of Marshmello, attended by more than 10 million people in February last year, and Travis Scott’s surreal Fortnite performance in April 2020 – watched by more than 12 million people.
