Fortnite is the world-famous battle royale FPS. It’s massively popular and Epic Games even managed to bring some celebrities to it. We had the likes of Ariana Grande and Travis Scott earlier, and recently we had Eminem closing Chapter 4 of the game. Fortnite is really working on becoming a platform with various game modes since Chapter 5 has three brand-new game modes. One of them is the music-themed Fortnite Festival, and the questions are: who is the headliner, what is the tracklist, and when is the release date? 

Fortnite Festival –  Who Is the Headliner?

There are a lot of confirmed artists for the Fortnite Festival, but the headliner is none other than The Weeknd. That’s right, the author of famous songs like Blinding Lights, Take My Breath and Creepin’ will be the headliner for Fortnite Festival.

What is Fortnite Festival and When Is the Release Date?

Fortnite Festival is a new game mode for Fortnite, that releases on Saturday, December 9, 2023. It is developed by Harmonix, the studio behind Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Players who participated in Eminem’s Big Bang event already had a sneak peek of how the game mode will function. Quite similar to Guitar Hero and the like, you have to press buttons in time with the notes as they come down on your screen. It seems there will even be different skins for the instruments in the game. But what about the tracklist, which songs will be available?
