Before the new Fortnite Festival season starts, here’s everything we know about it, including the headlining artist and more.

Fortnite Festival Season 2 release date

Fortnite Festival Season 2 will launch worldwide on February 22, 2024, according to Lady Gaga. While Epic Games haven’t yet confirmed this through official channels, the artist shared an official image with the date on X.

Players can join the musical experience by selecting the game mode using the “By Epic Games” tab.

Fortnite Festival explained

Fortnite Festival works similarly to music titles like Guitar Hero or Rock Band, where players will play solo or in a band with different roles. Rock Band developer Harmonix helped create this game mode in Fortnite.

Major artists are the main attraction of Fortnite Festival, and players can jam alongside their most popular songs. Each featured artist gets their own Festival Pass, giving players the chance to unlock special rewards with Festival Points, obtained by completing Festival quests. These rewards include different Instruments, Jam Tracks, emotes, and Auras, a Festival-exclusive cosmetic.

While players can already pick an instrument to play in a band, Fortnite Festival will also add leaderboards for players to compete with friends and other players.
