The Fortnite event countdown has begun: the time and date for the season 7 live event are now available.
With a countdown showing in-game on the Battle Royale map this week, FORTNITE fans learned when the season 7 live event will take place. Here’s when and where the next Fortnite live event will take place, as well as what fans can expect.
Players in Fortnite have noticed a countdown in the game that appears to display how much time is remaining until the next live event. The countdown has emerged in the Battle Royale island’s center, and it originally appeared in the days leading up to the release of Fortnite version 17.21 on Tuesday. After the Special Blue Abductor arrived in the Battle Royale island’s center, the Fortnite event countdown appeared.
And, according to the in-game countdown, the next Fortnite event will take place on Friday, August 6 at 6 p.m. eastern time.
It’s 3 p.m. pacific time and 11 p.m. BST for people in other time zones.
The next Fortnite event is rumored to be an Ariana Grande concert, with a leak saying that a rehearsal for the show has already taken place behind the scenes at Epic Games.
And the date of the next Fortnite event could support this, considering August 6 is Ariana Grande’s birthday, according to Google.
“The Special Blue Abductor has arrived at The Aftermath in the center of the island!” the @FN Assist Twitter account wrote in response to the newest Fortnite news.
“This includes a new Event countdown starting at 6 p.m. ET on August 6th.
“That means this is almost certainly Ariana Grande’s show!”
In Creative Mode, Fortnite has hosted a number of concerts, but the Travis Scott performance is undoubtedly the most notable.
Last April, the Fortnite Astronomical event took place during season 2 chapter 2 of Fortnite, and it was a visually stunning event that was a mash-up of previous Fortnite events.
Travis Scott skins were released as part of the event, and there were also encores of the performance for those who missed it the first time around.
If Epic Games pursues a similar strategy for the Ariana Grande event, we could see a skin for the Thank U, Next singer as well as encore performances on August 7 and 8.
Ariana Grande concert rumors originally surfaced earlier this month, when leaker ShiinaBR posted a leak on the FortniteLeaks Reddit board.
