Fortnite will throw a big music concert for the first time since Ariana Grande‘s show in 2021.

The next artist running a show in Fortnite will be the Australian rapper The Kid LAROI. Although The Kid LAROI isn’t as famous as Ariana Grande or Travis Scott, two artists who have already performed in Fortnite, he’s a recognized name among rap fans. The KID Laroi is most famous for his collab ‘Stay’ with Justin Bieber, which has over 670 million views on YouTube.

Concerts were one of the best experiences players could get in Fortnite before the production of these events took a hit thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Generally, Epic Games adds quests themed around the artist and puts special rules in place during the show, like prohibiting gunfire during the shows so players don’t shoot each other.
