The Rift Tour, featuring Ariana Grande, is coming to Fortnite next weekend.
On Sunday (Aug. 1), it was announced that Grande will be the latest superstar to perform within the Fortnite realm, headlining an in-game event — or a “musical journey into magical new realities” — that’s scheduled for Aug. 6-8.
“Ariana & the Rift Tour” will be available on the online game for five time slots over the weekend, accommodating fans around the world: Friday, Aug. 6 at 6 p.m. ET; Saturday, Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. ET; and Sunday, Aug. 8 at 12 a.m. ET, 10 a.m. ET., and 6 p.m. ET.
The Rift Tour will feature experiences that pair Grande’s music with elements from Fortnite.
As an added bonus, players can find Grande outfit options — from a “cosmic” look to her Piggy Smallz — in the Fornite Item Shop beginning on Aug. 4.
“Working with Epic and the Fortnite team to bring my music to life inside the game has been so fun and such an honor,” the singer said in a statement. “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,” added Phil Rampulla, head of brand at Epic Games. “With the Rift Tour, we’re bringing a musical journey to life that players can experience, feel, and join alongside their friends. 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!”
Fortnite is free to download, and it’s available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, PC and Mac. It’s recommended to join in an hour before show time.
