Travis Scott Concert in Fortnite

Anyone who was there will probably say that the Travis Scott concert in Fortnite was one of the best Fortnite events in gaming history. His virtual concert in the Battle Royal game sent players into a formal frenzy between planets and galaxies. In general, the Fortnite concert felt somewhat like a cross between a music clip and a computer game. For ten minutes, attendees were teleported across the Fortnite map fairly frequently, flying through a sea of planets and galaxies or watching a giant, holographic version of Travis Scott trudge through the action.

Songs like "Sicko Mode" and "Goosebumps" were playing. Every few seconds, the screen flashed and one whirled back & forth. So the name of the event was lived up to: "Astronomical". Over 12.3 million players simultaneously participated live in Travis Scott's Astronomical Event.
