Fortnite has had plenty of gigs in its virtual venues, but developer Epic Games is taking things to the next level. The Soundwave series is a collection of musical performances featuring artists from around the world, and it begins in October.
As announced on the Fortnite site, the concert series begins with Mohamed Hamaki, originally from Egypt. Hamaki will have shows from October 1-3, with the kick-off on Friday, October 1 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT. The show will repeat non-stop during this window, so you can go there anytime to watch the performance. You will receive a Hamaki themed spray to attend.
Hamaki’s concert includes the first performance of his new song “Leilt Elomr”, and his signature dance will be available as an emote in the Fortnite Item Shop to celebrate. It goes on sale the day before the event, Thursday, September 30 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. You can see the emote in action below:
Hamaki launches the Soundwave series, and he will be followed by a number of other international artists. Tones And I (Australia), Emicida (Brazil), Gen Hoshino (Japan) and Aya Nakamura (France) are named in the ad, with the promise of more “details as the sound wave continues. “.
The Soundwave series is far from the first concert series to take place in Fortnite, but it’s the first time Epic has focused on the international scene. Western artists like Ariana Grande and Travis Scott have been in the spotlight so far, so it will be nice to see more global appeal with the Soundwave series.
