According to a post from Epic Games, the Fortnite Party Royale Premiere goes live on Friday, May 8 at 6 p.m. (PT) and 9 p.m. (ET). During the Party Royale event, you can enjoy a live concert on the Main Stage in Fortnite with multiple participating artists.

“Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5 are coming to Party Royale with back-to-back-to-back sets LIVE on the big screen at the Main Stage,” the blog post from Epic reads. “Hit the dance floor, chill with friends, or jump into activities in Party Royale.”

The event is open to all and won’t require you to RSVP in order to attend. Instead, Fortnite players are free to join the festivities whenever they like as long as it’s within the event’s runtime from 9 p.m. (ET) until 10 p.m. (ET). Don’t worry if you can’t attend on May 8.

Like the Travis Scott event, there will be an encore event on Saturday, May 9 at 9 p.m (ET) until 3 p.m. (ET) at the same Main Stage area. To ensure everyone enjoys the show, Epic has confirmed that there will be no weapons or mats present in the Party Royale space. You also have other activities to enjoy, all of which sound well worth checking out.

“Shows at the Main Stage are just some of the many attractions at Party Royale. In this new experimental and evolving space, there are many things to do and places to explore. For example: take on aerial obstacle courses at Skydive Rift, participate in boat races at Fishsticks' Boat Race, and grab items at The Plaza such as the new Paint Launcher.”

Speaking of items, Fortnite players love their cosmetic and the Party Royale Premiere has something special for you to collect. As long as you log into Fortnite between May 8 at 6 p.m. (ET) until Monday, May 11 at 10 a.m. (ET), you’ll get the Neon Wings Back Bling for free.

We don’t know about you, but we love free cosmetics so even if we’re unable to catch the show, we’ll definitely be logging in this weekend to scoop up that Neon Wings Back Bling!

Again, the Fortnite Party Royale Premiere is scheduled to go live on May 8 at 6 p.m. (PT) and 9 p.m. (ET) and can be viewed in the Main Stage area. If you miss it, an encore will take place on Saturday, May 9 at 9 p.m. (ET).
