Dominic Fike has been announced as the first artist to perform on Fornite‘s next in-game concert series.
A three-week concert series starts with Fike on Saturday, September 12 at 5PM ET with an exclusive performance for Fortnite players from a brand new studio in Los Angeles built specifically for these types of in-game concerts.
Fortnite’s head of global partnerships, Nate Nanzer, explained the idea perfectly, setting the stage for even more concerts in the future. “This is a tour stop. If you’re on tour, you want to stop on the Fortnite stage," he told The Verge. "It’s a unique way to get in front of an audience that maybe you’re not reaching through other means.”
“This will be a full live concert broadcast into the game. He’s going to be playing with his band, and he’s going to be playing his new music live for the first time.”
Nanzer also says fans can expect longer sets during the new series. Artists set to perform for September 19 and 26 will be announced shortly.
Dominic Fike's debut album What Could Possibly Go Wrong is out now.
