Jordan Fisher-Diplo's live DJ set: Missed the live stream on Fortnite? Here's how to watch the concert replay
After an intense in-game concert from rapper Travis Scott, this Wednesday, April 27, Fortnite’s new no-guns 'party royale' mode was launched and was all set for its first live concert. Players had the ability to put on Major Lazer gear from the game store and dance around as Diplo played on a huge screen above the arena. This was a great initiative for artists who have had to cancel tours and concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and it looks to be one of many ways that fans can engage with their favorite artists.
The new model makes the game space a social party hub by taking away the battle royal elements from the game making it a hang-out space. The concert had taken place at 9 pm EST on May 1 with DJ and producer Diplo performing a live Major Lazer set. Jordan Fisher was also part of the show! The concert took place on the east side of the island, at the big main stage. Don't worry, there were no weapons in this new model, so players were able to enjoy themselves without having to be defensive.
Fans weren't ecstatic at the fact that the news was announced so late though, not to mention the promotion of the event wasn't as much. "I don't think we should expect something like the Travis scott event since they haven't really hyped this up as much," tweeted a fan. Epic Games tweeted about the event only 30 minutes before the concert took place catching players, streamers, and content creators off guard. Most of them missed the concert due to the fact that it was in the Party Royale mode. The concert went on for roughly 20 minutes.
It was annoying to the fans that may have missed the singular promotional tweet that had gone out, "I agree it was shit i wasted 20 minutes of my life to get backbling but i did not get it," tweeted one fan.
But not to worry, If you weren't able to catch the concert on Fortnite of course or live on Twitch, you can catch the replay of the concert here.
