It’s almost August. At this time last year, the Fortnite Ariana Grande Rift Tour was pretty much already a publicly known fact thanks to leaks from one heck of a leaker. By August 1, 2021, we had the complete Rift Tour schedule straight from Epic Games. On similar schedules in years past, we’d also seen Travis Scott and Marshmello take the virtual stage in Epic’s burgeoning metaverse.
But if you’re waiting for a Fortnite concert for Summer 2022, as of right now, nothing is confirmed–it’s not even concretely leaked yet, unlike last year’s show. Instead, what we have are several whispers and maybe an explanation as to why a concert, if it’s happening at all, is coming a bit later this year. Rounding up rumors pertaining to performers such as Billie Eilish, Juice Wrld, and Lady Gaga, here’s everything we know so far about a Fortnite Summer 2022 concert.
