Epic Games has announced when the next show in its incredibly popular Soundwave Series will occur. If you didn't know, Soundwave is a Fortnite creative game mode made by BertBuilds, Paradox Builds, and Zen Creative, in which artists perform a series of songs in intricately crafted environments that are inspired by those same songs.

The Soundwave Series has previously featured artists like Mohamed Hamaki and Tones And I, and for its latest event, it's bringing Brazilian rapper Emicida. Here's everything you need to know about the next show in the Soundwave series, including its release date and how you can watch it.

When does the next show Soundwave Series start in Fortnite?

Emicida's Soundwave show will kick off on 29th April 2022 at 6 pm ET / 3 pm PT. Similar to the previous shows in the Soundwave Series, Emicida's show will air back-to-back for 72 hours.

What can fans expect from the next Soundwave Series show in Fortnite?

The entire Soundwave stage was transformed into a madhouse for Tones and I, inspired by her album "Welcome to the Madhouse". Every set in the Tones and I show was unique and tethered to the vibe and emotions of that particular song.

These weren't just copy-pasted environments but intricately crafted and dynamic spaces that changed as the song progressed. You can expect something similar with Emicida's Soundwave show this April.

Thankfully, Epic has revealed what's in store expect for Emicida's upcoming interactive experience in Fortnite. His life journey inspires Emicida's sets, and the songs that appear in his sets will portray his journey of growing up in Jardim Cachoeira in the north of São Paulo, Brazil.

From doing street rap battles to becoming an internationally recognised rapper, Emicida's set seems to throw back at his journey. For both the fans of Emicida's music and those hearing about him for the first time, this should be an interactive musical experience, unlike anything Fortnite fans are well and truly aware of.
