UPDATE: Fortnite developer Epic Games has issued a last-minute warning to fans.
With the final Travis Scott concerts about to go live, Epic has told fans to secure a spot early.
“Get ready for Astronomical!” reads an Epic tweet. “The event will begin at 11AM EDT. We recommend getting in 30 minutes early to secure your spot. Creative mode and Battle Lab are currently disabled.”
ORIGINAL: Fortnite fans be warned: this is your last chance to attend the Travis Scott Astronomical event on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android and PC.
Described as an “other-worldly experience like nothing you’ve ever seen”, the Travis Scott Astronomical event kicked off with a special in-game concert on April 23.
Unlike the one-and-done Fortnite Marshmello concert from 2019, Travis Scott performances have been spread across multiple days.
“Fortnite and Travis Scott Present: Astronomical. A one of a kind musical journey featuring @trvisXX and the world premiere of a brand new track,” reads the official description.
“Astronomical is an other-worldly experience inspired by Cactus Jack’s creations, built from the ground up in Fortnite.”
The final two performances take place on Saturday, April 25. The first concert takes place at 4pm BST for UK fans, followed by the final performance at 11pm BST.
Doors open 30 minutes before the show begins, so you can head to the venue at Sweaty Sands to get a good spot.
It’s worth doing, because fans who attend any of the Travis Scott Astronomical concerts will receive free rewards. This includes the Astroworld Cyclone Glider and two loading screens.
The Travis Scott concerts have helped set new records in Fortnite, as more than 12 million players tune in.
“Over 12.3 million concurrent players participated live in Travis Scott’s Astronomical, an all-time record!” Epic tweets. “Catch an encore performance before the tour ends.”
Fans can also complete a selection of Travis Scott Astronomical challenges, and buy themed items from the in-game store.
The Fortnite Travis Scott skin costs 1,500 V-Bucks from the Fortnite Item Shop, while the Astro Jack skin is priced at 2,000 V-Bucks.
Additional items can be earned by completing the Travis Scott Astronomical challenges.
Fans are tasked with dancing for 10 seconds on the dance floor at The Yacht or Apres Ski, bouncing off giant Astro heads, and simply visiting the stage north of Sweaty Sands.
By completing tasks players will earn a new emote, banner, spray, and loading screen.
There’s also a brand new emote, which can only be unlocked after completing all three of the challenges.
