Fortnite's Marshmello live concert, held on February 2nd, 2019, was a smashing success. The concert boasted to be the world's largest live concert on record, with over 10 million simultaneous players gathering to watch the event live. The event took place in Pleasant Park, one of the Fortnite's popular named locations. Days prior to the concert, a stage slowly began to be built in the area typically occupied by the football field. Posters could also be found across the map with pictures of Marshmello and concert advertisements. This was around the same time that the Marshmello skin, pickaxe, glider, and emote were added to the item shop.
At 1 PM ET on Saturday, traditional game modes and weapons/pickaxes were disabled. Players gathered in Pleasant Park to witness Marshmello perform live. The concert lasted approximately 30 minutes. The concert was a great example of Fortnite's adaptability and entrepreneurship within its genre. While many people classify Fortnite as a third person shooter, it has become much more than that. Live events, and an ever-evolving map and mini plots have all contributed to its soaring popularity. Undoubtedly, the success of Marshmello's live concert will certainly contribute to future pushes for more live events in the future. Marshmello's live fortnite set has been added to Apple Music for those who missed out or would like to re-experience the set.
