Fortnite is hosting another Party Royale event that gives players some free, exclusive cosmetic rewards. This time, they’re featuring four-time Latin Grammy award winner J Balvin and giving viewers an exclusive style for the Party Trooper skin.
You can catch the concert on the main stage of Party Royale beginning on October 31 at 9 PM EST. J Balvin will be headlining the “Afterlife Party,” which may feature other artists, as well.
The biggest incentive to attend the event goes to owners of the Party Trooper skin. These players will be able to unlock an exclusive style for the outfit, just by attending the event. According to Epic, the skin will be available for purchase in the Item Shop until November 1 at 8 PM EST.
If you miss the show, you’ll be able to catch a re-broadcast on November 1 at 1 PM EST and 6 PM EST. The rebroadcasts should grant you the free skin style, as well. You don’t even have to watch the whole concert if you don’t want to. You should get the style for logging into Party Royale at these specific times.
We’ll keep you posted with any more information about upcoming Party Royale promotions. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL to stay up to date with all of the latest Fortnite news.
Your navigation guide to Fortnite: Party Royal
Find out how to get to the main stage in Party Royale in time for the Fortnite BTS event.
Party Royale is the most recent official game mode that Epic have added to Fortnite. With its addition, it’s clear that Epic are planning for Fortnite to be more than just a Battle Royale game.
Epic executives have discussed turning Fortnite into a social hub rather than just a video game. Creative Mode was a small step in that direction, but Party Royale was a leap. The mode has nothing to do with competition and everything to do with meeting friends, messing around, and having fun.
The initial release of Party Royale was relatively lackluster. There wasn’t too much to do in the mode, and the featured concerts seemed more like a testing ground rather than a blockbuster hit. Coming off of the back of the astonishing Travis Scott “Astronomical” concert, some fans were disappointed to see a much simpler setup in the Party Royale Premier
As time has gone on, however, it’s become clear that Epic are focusing on growing this mode over time. Each Party Royale event seems to grow on the last one, with the upcoming BTS crossover being the biggest Party Royale event to date.
With BTS’ new Choreography Video for “Dynamite” premiering in Party Royale, the game mode is likely to have more attention than ever before. In fact, with BTS’ fanbase being so massive and fanatic, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Fortnite reaching another concurrent player milestone during the event.
A lot of Fortnite players have ignored Party Royale up until this point. Even more, the BTS crossover is likely to attract fans who aren’t even regular Fortnite players. Since this is the case, we thought it would be a good idea to offer a brief navigation guide to the game mode so you know where you’re headed.
First thing’s first, you’ll need to hop into a Battle Royale lobby and navigate to the Party Royale game mode. Once you hit play, you’ll load into the Party Royale island. It’s much smaller than the Battle Royale island, but there are a lot of icons around the map. It can be a bit confusing if you’ve never been in here before.
You’ll spawn on the island in The Plaza. There are races, time trials, and all kinds of other activities scattered around the map. If you’re only here for the BTS show, then you’ll want to head for the Main Stage. You can find this all the way to the east of the map – shown below with a blue marker.
The Big Screen – to the west – is another place where activity is known to happen. For instance, this is where Epic premiered their animated short calling out Apple – but that’s another can of worms.

The main stage is the most important location on the map, by far. You can navigate to the stage by using your map or following the signs.
If you want to change your skin before the event, you can do so without even leaving the game mode. All you need to do is find one of the blue phone booths and hop inside.
There’s always something happening at the Main Stage – even if it’s some classic Fortnite beats as the loading screens cycle on-screen. Hop in and check it out so you’re not late for the event!
The Fortnite BTS event kicks off tonight, September 25 at 8 PM EST (5 PM PST). The second showing will take place tomorrow, September 26 at 8 AM EST – likely a time so that the whole world can enjoy the event.
Hopefully, this guide made everything clearer and got you to the main stage in time for the concert. Enjoy!
Everything you need to know about the Fortnite BTS event
Find out how to watch the exclusive premier of the new BTS music video for “Dynamite” inside of Fortnite.
Epic Games are continuing to invest in their Fortnite: Party Royale game mode by signing some of the most popular artists in the world to offer exclusive content to their game.
The mode launched with sets from massively popular DJs like Diplo, Dillon Francis, and Steve Aoki. More recently, we saw Anderson .Paak host a live performance. Next up is K-Pop sensation BTS, which looks to be the most popular Party Royale concert yet.
The performance will take place next weekend, beginning of Friday, September 25 at 8 PM EST, BTS will premier their new music video for their song “Dynamite.”
Two new emotes will also be coming to Fortnite this week – both choreographed by BTS. Purchasing them will let you dance along with the music video when it goes live on Friday.
If you’re not able to make the showing on Friday, Fortnite will be hosting a rerun on Saturday, September 26 at 8 AM EST. This timing allows everyone in the world to participate in the Fortnite premier.
You’ll only have two chances to view the music video in Fortnite, but it will undoubtedly be available on YouTube after the event is over.
Stay tuned for the BTS emotes coming to Fortnite on September 23. With a presumed patch tomorrow, keep an eye out for leaks surrounding this event. As always, we’ll have everything covered here and on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL.
