Play some Fortnite and listen to a new track from Travis Scott.
Fortnite events aren’t only for players to check out new content from developer Epic Games. The popular battle royale game has also played host to multiple premieres and collaborations, from a never-before-seen clip of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to the first episode of Chance the Rapper’s reboot of Punk’d on Quibi.
On Thursday, Travis Scott will debut his newest track, Astronomical, in Fortnite. Scott used the game to create the Astronomical experience inspired by Cactus Jack’s creations, which is the rapper’s nickname and the name of his record label.
This is going to be a unique experience.
When does Travis Scott’s Astronomical start?
The show starts at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 23. The doors opened at 6:30 p.m./3:30 p.m. PT to have players avoid long queues to get in. Like other Fortnite events, don’t expect this event to last that long.
The show will happen on an island just north of Sweaty Sands. The stage is all set as of Thursday, and there’s even a clock counting down the time until the event starts.
The festivities are about to kick off.
What if I miss the event?
Epic Games will repeat the event on Saturday, April 25, at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.
Is there any Travis Scott loot?
Yes. Players who attend the Astronomical event will receive the Astroworld Cyclone Glider and two new loading screens.

The rapper will be part of Fortnite’s Icon Series that lets players purchase Travis Scott skins and other cosmetics in the game’s item shop on Tuesday.

Epic added the Travis Scott skin and the Astronomical Bundle to the Fortnite Item shop on Thursday before the event started. The skin alone is 1,500 V-Bucks, or approximately $15, and the bundle is 3,500 V-Bucks, or approximately $35, and comes with the skin, the Astro Jack outfit, Astroworld back bling and Cactus Jack back bling.
Starting on Tuesday, there will be a set of Astronomical challenges for players to complete. Rewards include a new Travis Scott spray and emote. Players will have until Sunday to complete these challenges.
