The Fortnite Rift Tour kicks off August 6 and runs all weekend with several shows.

Epic provided the start time for each of the five Rift Tour concerts, but you’ll want to plan ahead. Not everyone will make it in, and you’ll need to arrive early.

Since The Rift Tour is an in-game event, anyone with Fortnite installed can watch it. It’s region free and available on all platforms:

  • Nintendo Switch
  • PS4/PS5
  • Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S
  • iOS and Android
  • PC

You’ll need to be running Fortnite v17.30, and Epic recommends logging in at least 30 minutes before the show begins.

RSVP-ing and showing up early won’t guarantee a spot at the concert, however. If you can’t get into one show, Epic recommends trying again at another time.

While you’re waiting on the show to start, there’s still time to complete the Rift Tour quests over the weekend to unlock concert-themed items. Anyone who logs in between now and August 10 will also receive:

  • Rainbow Cloudcruiser Umbrella
  • Skye up High Loading Screen
  •  Rift Tour-themed Banner

And anyone who gets into the concert receives a commemorative Cuddly Cloudraiser umbrella .
