Last September, Fortnite announced a new music event called Soundwave. The Soundwave Series is a series of music shows featuring artists from around the world.

Each show offers its own interactive in-game experience. In October 2021, Egyptian superstar Mohamed Hamaki made an appearance in Fortnite. In January, Australian singer-songwriter Tones And I. Then it was the turn of Brazilian rapper Emicida. At the last Soundwave event in June, Japanese pop star and music producer Gen Hoshino took the stage.

And now successful Malian-French singer Aya Nakamurains is stepping into the limelight.


How can I join the Soundwave event in Fortnite?

To enter, simply join the SOUNDWAVE SERIES: AYA NAKAMURA mode in the Discover tile anytime starting Thursday, October 6, 2022 at 18:00 CEST or enter the island code 3500-0540-0065. The show will be repeating non-stop for 72 hours until Sunday October 9th at 18:00 CEST, so if you can't be there right away, no problem.


You also have the option to watch the show in Battle Royale mode via Picture-in-Picture. However, this is only possible at certain times of the event and you can access it via the settings. Logically, however, the interactive elements cannot be played using the picture-in-picture function. In addition, the function is only possible at the following times:

  • Thursday, October 6 at 18:00 CEST
  • Friday October 7th at 21:00 CEST
  • Saturday October 8th at 20:00 CEST
  • Sunday October 9th at 14:00 CEST

Of course there are also cute cosmetics up for grabs during the event. If you watch the show live, you'll get the free Soundwave Series - Aya Nakamura spray theme, the Aya's Island loading screen, and some XP for your Battle Pass as a keepsake!

How to get Aya Nakamura's Copines emote?

If you are a hardcore Aya Nakamura fan, you can pick up the Copines emote in the item shop to match the event. It will probably cost between 300 and 500 V-Bucks and will be available from Thursday October 6th at 02:00 CEST.


Aya's hit "Copines", a single from her album Nakamura, is also one of the songs played at the event!

We hope you have a lot of fun at the show!
