The Fortnite Party Royale Premiere live event is today. Here’s everything you need to know about the concert including the time it’ll take place.

Epic Games have announced a number of collaborations for Fortnite in the past couple of years. So far, we’ve seen Fortnite collaborations with Marvel, DC, Marshmello, Major Lazer, John Wick, Travis Scott, Boarderlands and more. With all these collaborations in the past, there was no surprise when Epic announced three music artists will be performing at the Fortnite Party Royale Premiere.

In a blog post released on the 6th May, Epic announced the Party Royale Premiere, which includes back-to-back-toback live sets from Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5. The concert event is set to last an hour, so each set will likely last roughly 20 minutes.
