We recommend fans arrive in Fortnite 60 minutes before showtime, and the Rift Tour Playlist should be live 30 minutes before each show. Before Ariana’s arrival, the Rift Tour kicks off with Fortnite-themed experiences — pairing popular tracks with moments based on elements from the game.

Concert Times include:

Show 1
Friday, August 6 @ 6PM ET

Show 3
Sunday, August 8 @ 12AM ET

The Rift Tour is better if you travel side by side with your friends! Visit for more details on the Rift Tour schedule, or use the in-game Rift Tour tab.
