Fortnite is teaming up with DJ Marshmello for an in-game event, where he will ‘perform’ at Pleasant Park, and in celebration, a new set of challenges have officially gone live.
First discovered by data miners following the v7.30 update, the event, called ‘Festivus’, will see the DJ lead a party of some kind on February 2 at 2 pm EST.
Along with the event itself, a set of new emotes and items which tie in with the rave theme, players have some tasks to complete before the party gets started.
There are only three Showtime challenges in total for the Showtime event, with each challenge granting a reward ahead of the DJ's performance at Pleasant Park on February 2. All three challenges have now been released, meaning you can get your hands on some sweet Marshmello-themed gear.
Marshmello Showtime Challenges
- Challenge 1: For the first day of Showtime Challenges, players will need to find one of the Showtime posters that have been placed around the map to advertise Marshmello's performance at Pleasant Park. Simply find one of these flyers, walk up to it and interact with it to complete the challenge, and earn yourself the Marshmello-themed spray.

Players will be rewarded with the Marshmello spray for completing the first Showtime challenge.
- Challenge 2: The second Showtime challenge requires players to visit the location of the Marshmello concert that will take place on Saturday, February 2. To complete this, simply head over to Pleasant Park, where the stage has been set up on the football field. Players need to complete this challenge before attempting the third and final task, as you need to have the 'Keep It Mello' emote you earn as a reward to complete the last challenge.
