Fortnite Begins Ticket Pre-Registration for First-Ever Fortnite Summer Block Party
Epic Games announced today that it will host the Fortnite Summer Block Party, which is a two-day event celebrating the Fortnite community. This will feature top content creators and celebrities, from Ninja, Brendon Urie (of Panic! At The Disco), Dillion Francis, KittyPlays, Cray and Jordan Fisher. This will take place at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. Verified fan registration begins today (at 10 am EST). Fans interested in pre-registering can do so at the Ticketmaster Verified Fan website below. This will notify people when tickets go on sale and will be the first to be notified. This is to help remove scalpers and bots from the ticketing process.
On June 15, fans can watch celebrities, YouTubers and their favorite streamers battle it out in the first-ever Creative tournament. Teams will fight for fame on a new player-made game designed specifically for this event. On June 16, the Celebrity Pro-Am will return for its second year. Fans will find out which team will take home the Victory Royale. Tickets to attend the Summer Block Party will start at $35, giving fans access to both days of activities including the Fortnite Fan Festival. Attendees will have the chance to meet more than 20 characters including Peely, Fishstick, and Brite Bomber; glide on the island’s trademark ziplines; visit attractions such as the Pirate Ship and Fortnite Mini Golf; explore in-game eateries Durr Burger, Pizza Pete’s, Sofdeez Ice Cream Shop and more.
Endeavor, a global leader in sports, entertainment, and fashion with a portfolio of companies including WME, IMG, and UFC is overseeing operations and logistics for the event in addition to the Fortnite World Cup in July, another first-of-its-kind fan experience. Battlepass pre-sale tickets will go on-sale for Fortnite fans on Saturday, May 11 at 10 am PT, and be available until Monday, May 13 at 10 pm PT. Verified Fan presale will run from Wednesday, May 15 at 10 am PT through Thursday, May 16 at 10 pm PT, and general public on-sale will begin Friday, May 17th at 10 am PT.
“As gaming solidifies its position as one of the fastest-growing consumer trends globally, we are excited to work with Epic Games to provide Fortnite’s 250 million-player fan base the opportunity to get even closer to the action,” said Stuart Saw, SVP of eSports, Endeavor. “The Summer Block Party will demonstrate the collective power of the Fortnite community and the strength of the brand, building on the success of last year’s record-breaking Pro-Am Charity Tournament.”
