Learn everything you need to know about the upcoming Rift Tour live event.


Ariana Grande will officially enter the world of Fortnite Battle Royale based on some leaked information over the last few days. The event, dubbed Rift Tour, centers around a “journey to magical new realities where Fortnite and a record-breaking superstar collide.” While Epic has not confirmed or denied the leaks regarding Ariana Grande as the superstar, it’s a foregone conclusion at this point that Fortnite’s in-game event countdown will lead into her long-awaited concert. She’ll follow the likes of Marshmello and Travis Scott as the third musical artist to have a concert created with her likeness in the popular Battle Royale title.

Rift Tour x Ariana Grande Concert Details

Players who load into Fortnite from now until August 6 will notice an updated Social Tab, which Epic has renamed to “Rift Tour.” This tab provides all the information you’ll need to attend the Ariana Grande concert. Based on the details displayed, the event presumably begins on August 6 and ends on August 8. This timeframe would allow multiple players to tune in and watch even if they miss the first instance. The Rift Tour tab also grants the ability to “Save the Date.” Those who check the box in their server region will show up attending the event on their friends list.
