Fortnite has played many concerts in Creative Mode, but arguably the biggest concert Fortnite has held to date is the performance of Travis Scott.

The Fortnite Astronomical event took place this past April during Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 2, and a visually stunning event that was a mash-up of previous events that took place in Fortnite.

As part of that event, Travis Scott skins were released, while there were also encores of the gig for anyone who missed the first time.
