Fortnite Ariana Grande live event: Exact dates and times

The Fortnite Rift Tour is a "musical journey into magical new realities" and we know for sure there will be a live Ariana Grande event, as the international superstar joins Fortnite, not only as an ICON Series skin but thanks to an exciting concert as well. Since Fortnite players from across the globe can all attend the live event in-game, and timezones can get a little tricky if you are trying to convert them from ET time to BST or anything else really. With that in mind, here's a quick guide to the exact start dates and times for the Fortnite live event in the UK, and other regions.

What time is the Fortnite live event in the UK?

First and foremost, if you don't want to miss Ariana Grande's appearance via the live event in Fortnite, you should update the game to v17.30 in case you haven't logged in recently.

While the official advertisement for the Rift Tour says it starts on 6th August, things get a bit tricky when timezones from across the globe are thrown into the mix.

For our readers in the UK (BST time) who want to know exactly when the Fortnite live event featuring Ariana Grande will begin, we've got you covered with the schedule in your timezone below.

  • 1st show: 6th August at 23:00.
  • 2nd show: 7th August at 19:00.
  • 3rd show: 8th August at 05:00.
  • 4th show: 8th August at 15:00.
  • 5th show: 8th August at 23:00.

Epic Games recommends players load up Fortnite one hour (60 minutes) before the show begins. The Rift Tour playlist will go live 30 minutes ahead of the show.

While the goal is for everyone to join in, the developers simply can't guarantee servers won't reach capacity. If this happens, you should try and join one of the other Fortnite live shows for the Rift Tour event via the dates and times above.
