The next major in-game event for Fortnite is on the way, with the Party Royale Premier set to light the Main Stage with performances from world-renowned DJs deadmau5, Steve Aoki and Dillon Francis.

Epic Games have been going big with these party events, the latest being Travis Scott’s concert that featured a new single from the Grammy-nominated artist. Before that, it was a mesh of cinematic events for players to gaze upon, and even epic battles between towering figures.

But now, the Epic Games team are going to feature three headliners in their digital music festival, along with a chance for Fortnite players to collect an exclusive item for participating.

How to watch the Party Royale Premier

Epic Games
Epic Games have a stacked lineup for their Fortnite Festival.

The three artists are set to premiere on the stage starting Friday May 8 at 6 PM PDT / 9 PM ET, which should last about one hour.

The show will start at that time, but players can log in to the festivities throughout the entire hour. Since it’s a live event, don’t be surprised if you miss a couple of tracks if you’re running late.

The Fortnite page has them listed as Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5, presumably the order that they’ll come on live in a back-to-back-to-back set.

Exclusive Fortnite Back Bling, Attractions, and Encore

Even if you’re not into the music, there will be plenty to do at the Fortnite festival.

Even if the artists aren’t exactly your taste, every Fortnite collector should still queue in to the game during the weekend, since it’s the only way to get the reactive back bling.

The Neon Wings Back Bling will be up for grabs during the span of Friday, May 8 at 3 PM PDT / 6 PM ET to Monday, May 11 at 7 AM PDT / 10 AM ET.

The wings are a perfect compliment for people to use during the DJs’ sets – but if you miss it, there would still be time to catch a show.

Epic Games
The Back Bling will be tied to the upcoming Fortnite concerts.

There will be a follow-up performance on May 9 from 11 AM PDT to 12 PM PDT / 2 PM ET to 3 PM ET. Although it won’t be live, it will be a way for people to catch the broadcast in case they couldn’t make the first show.

There’s going to be loads to explore during the event for players who just want to indulge in that. A Skydive Rift obstacle course, Fishsticks’ Boat Race game, and new items will also be available for people to try out.

There’s going to be a lot for people to explore during the Fortnite Party Royale Premiere that will have any fan covered for the weekend festivities.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
