Epic Games “The Rift Tour” event will be hosting (most likely) Ariana Grande at an in-game concert. This event will first take place on Friday, August 6, 2021, starting at 3 PM PDT. This is also 6PM EST and 11PM GMT, all on Friday, August 6, 2021. There will also be a replay event (and alternate times) in a variety of regions around the world.
Fortnite has released information about the event indicating that it will bring a “record-breaking star” to the series of events. A free umbrella for the event was leaked this morning too – does it sound familiar to you? Does it rain on me a lot?
The “global” replay will deliver Ariana Grande’s concert on August 7, 2021 at 1 PM EST. If you’re looking for a release from Asia and Oceania, visit August 8 at 12AM EST. There will be an EU and Middle East release on August 8 at 1AM EST, and a replay (again) for the Americas on August 8 at 6PM ET.
If you miss the event in one place, change your matchmaking area and move to another place. If you want to be a part of the concert, you’ll absolutely need to log into Fortnite one hour before the scheduled start time. Then, just sit for a while until the concert playlist appears – it will happen 30 minutes before the concert starts.
Information on Ariana Grande AS the artist comes from HYPEX who has published cryptic poster images that match (more or less) with Ariana Grande’s current collections of color schemes and features.
Or it could be another record-breaking artist who has nothing to do with Ariana Grande at all. But imagine using the images you see above and not assuming that they will all relate to Grande. Isn’t that the most amazing option?
Update: Above you will find more images from the upcoming series of events. These images were shared by Epic Games to promote the event. You’ll find Pre-Round Prizes including: Cuddles Cosmic (Art by Delicious Design League) loading screen, Rift-sterpiece Spray, and the new Cloudy Kitty Emoticon.
Update 2: Another image shared by Epic Games of the next major series of events. Today, Epic suggested that “starting today” you’ll be able to unlock rewards “for the first wave of Rift Tour missions.”
