Ariana Grande joins Fortnite. On Sunday, Epic Games unveiled the “record-breaking superstar” on the Fortnite Rift Tour, the 28-year-old Grammy winner best known for his songs “Thank U, Next.” She is also the most popular female artist on Spotify and Apple Music and the most signed solo artist on YouTube. The Fortnite concert of Grande’s five shows will premiere on Friday, August 6 at 3:00 p.m. PT / 6:00 p.m. ET (which means the awful Saturday Aug 7 at 3:30 a.m. in India). This is why there are so many shows for people around the world to watch in reasonable hours.
Here is the full schedule of the Fortnite Rift Tour featuring Ariana Grande with timetables for India:
Show 1: Friday, August 6, 3:00 pm PT – Saturday, August 7, 3:30 am ET.

If you are looking to tune into the Grande Fortnite concert series from India, the second and fourth shows are likely to suit you best, as you can tell. Epic games speaks Fans should log into Fortnite one hour before the aforementioned show schedule, which will help you prepare to sign up and navigate to the Rift Tour playlist, which airs 30 minutes before each of the five shows. When you launch Fortnite, you will see a new “Rift Tour” tab (as shown below) where you can schedule the sessions you plan to attend with your friends.
Of course, as with any gaming event, Fortnite will offer skins, rewards, and quests. You can dress up as Grande – part of the Icon series in the Fortnite item store – to attend Grande’s concert. In the run-up to the Rift Tour series, you can complete the Rift Tour quests that can give you a loading screen (Cosmic Cuddles loading screen), an emoticon (Cloudy Kitty Emoticon), or a spray (Rift-sterpiece Spray). You will even receive a reward for attending a Grande concert: the Cuddly Cloudcruiser umbrella. And if you have a Fortnite Crew subscription, you’ll get three more items simply by logging in: the Rainbow Cloudcruiser umbrella, Skye up high loading screen, and the Rift Tour-themed banner.
By creating a record-breaking Grande, Epic Games hopes to break its own records. Fortnite has made great strides in the past with gaming gigs – Travis Scott’s April 2020 performance attracted 27.7 million unique visitors and over 12 million concurrently, while Marshmello’s February 2019 concert drew 10.7 million concurrent viewers. The Grande event has been in development for a while now, and May reports show that it was first scheduled for October last year and is finally here. Can Grande add another entry to his name?
