Millions watch Marshmello play Fortnite gig

Marshmello and Epic Games have hosted the first ever in-game concert as part of Fortnite. 

The DJ’s avatar performed in the Pleasant Park location for a 10-minute set during which players’ weapons were disabled. It included Marshmello tracks Alone, Gassed Up, Check This Out, Colors, Flashbacks, Everyday, Fly and Happier.

Fortnite offered players special Marshmello-themed skins and emotes, as well as a "Marshy Smasher" pickaxe.

An encore performance enabled players in different time zones to experience the in-game show.

Following the performance, Apple Music subscribers can also access an extended Marshmello set available worldwide across the streaming service.

Marshmello has launched a limited edition Marshmello X Fortnite merch collection.
