Fortnite players have started uncovering even more details about the upcoming Travis Scott live event – with the location of the concert stage now found.
As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded and the game’s popularity has exploded, Epic Games have done a number of crossovers with real-world pop culture. Some of these have come in the form of cosmetics, new in-game locations, and even limited-time modes – though, some of the biggest have been real-time events.
EDM DJ Marshmello set the bar all the way back in season seven when he held an actual concert at Pleasant Park. More recently, Risky Reels was transformed to show off a trailer for Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker. Next, it seems, will be the turn of Travis Scott.
The rapper, who has had hugely popular tracks in the form of Sicko Mode and Antidote, had been rumored to have a skin coming to Fortnite when Chapter 2, Season 2 kicked off.
That, still, hasn’t proven to be the case but he does seem to be holding a concert. Leakers uncovered in-game files that found songs from the Astroworld artist being played and have now gone one step further – finding the location of the concert.
Reliable data miner HYPEX noted that if players head to one of the small islands between Sweaty Sands and The Shark, they’ll see that a stage is being constructed. That location lines up with what has already been uncovered in the previous leaks.

As of writing, there hasn’t been a date confirmed for the in-game concert, though, many fans have speculated that is it most likely to come around a weekend – so that everybody can enjoy the concert.
Though, we’ll just have to wait and see what Epic chooses to do, especially as they also seem to be building towards a cinematic event to finish off Season 2.
