Epic Games and Fortnite are the pioneers of in-game events, concerts included. Earlier this year, Travis Scott’s in-game concert attracted more than 27 million players, making it one of the most historic and successful in-game events ever, following DJ Marshmallow’s 2019 stint. This week, Fortnite is hosting another concert to coincide with the Halloween event known as Fortnitemares, this time featuring Grammy Award-winning Reggaeton singer J Balvin.

How to watch the J Balvin concert
To catch the J Balvin Fortnite concert, you’ll need to head to the Main Stage in Party Royale on Saturday, October 31, at 9 p.m. ET. If you can’t make it then, you’ll have other chances to watch a rebroadcast on Sunday, November 1, at 1 p.m. ET and again at 6 p.m. ET. The Main Stage is located on the east side of the map within Party Royale mode, where you can participate with friends or strangers. Epic Games also features a new, limited-time island you can visit within Creative Mode called La Familia, which was created by members of the community. Here, you can play minigames based on songs from J Balvin’s most recent record, Colores.
To party in style, you can also purchase the limited-time Party Trooper Outfit from the in-game store until November 1 at 8 p.m. ET. This fancy new outfit is available for 1,200 V-bucks and is a great way to show your support during the concert.
As for the concert itself, the artist will debut his new song, La Luz, which is a collaboration with Panamanian artist Sech. His Fortnite performance will likely feature some of the tracks from Colores, a record that is composed of song titles that correspond to colors in Spanish. The album debuted in March and received positive reviews, with the track Blanco achieving Gold status in Spain.
In reference to his upcoming appearance in Fortnite, J Balvain said on Instagram that he is grateful to be the first Spanish-language artist to headline this year’s Fortnitemares event at the Afterlife Party alongside Sech.
There are other incentives to capitalize on during Fortnitemares, too, including new challenges and a slew of premium cosmetics, namely a Ghostbusters pack that features numerous skins, emotes, a glider, and more.
