Fortnite Marshmello concert watched by 10 MILLION players in game – and millions more on streams

The dance music DJ hosted a concert in the Battle Royale game, and it was HUGE

A ten-minute set from dance music provider Marshmello in Fortnite was reportedly watched in-game by over ten million people.

Respected industry insider and Game Awards organiser Geoff Keighley claims that “sources” have revealed that over 10 million players were logged into Fortnite during the concert.

The event, which happened yesterday afternoon, was unlike any other event that Fortnite has seen so far.

All weapons were disabled for the duration of the ten-minute show, which featured a seemingly-live performance from the man himself.

The game also saw gravity reduced at various points so let players bounce around to the tunes, as well as deploying the usual array of dance moves.

As well as the reported 10 million people watching in the game itself, many more were watching via Twitch and other popular streaming services.

The event happened in every Fortnite game individually, so each individual concert only had 100 viewers — but repeated 100,000 times simultaneously across the different games.

Marshmello himself described himself as “in awe”.
