Fortnite Party Royale time and how to join FREE virtual concert with Diplo and Miley Cyrus’ sister Noah


FORTNITE is hosting a major Party Royale event this week – including a live DJ performance by Diplo.

The event will see the premiere of Diplo’s new album, entirely virtually within the game.

Fortnite’s Party Royale will have three performers

Fortnite Party Royale – what is it and who’s performing?

Fortnite Party Royale is a major music event happening inside the game.

And because Fortnite is free to play, anyone can join it – as long as you’ve installed the game.

For this event, the headline act is Diplo, who will be debuting his latest album Diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley.

But that’s not all, because the virtual showcase even has supporting acts.

There will be loads of new items – including outfits – in the Item Shop to celebrate the occasion

Alongside Diplo’s performance will be music from Young Thug and Noah Cyrus, the younger sister of star singer Miley Cyrus.

Fortnite Party Royale start time and dates – when is Diplo’s performance?

The event is due to take place on June 25 – that’s this Thursday.

It will happen live at 6pm Los Angeles time and 9pm New York time.

That means Brits will be tuning in at 2am London time.

There’s also a rebroadcast of the event in game on Monday, June 29 at 5pm UK time, which is much easier for Brits to catch.

To view the event live, join the game around half an hour before the scheduled performance time.

Fortnite Party Royale new items

The album’s premiere is also being marked by the reintroduction of some classic items.

Several Outfits will be returning, including Deadfire, Desperado, Rio Grande, Frontier, Rustler and Nightlife.

The Knee Slapper Emote is also making a return.

These items will be available in the Item Shop from June 24 at 8pm NY time, or from 1am on June 25 for Brits.
