Last weekend, Fortnite gamers were able to experience the second installation of the Spotlight Series; a live streamed concert. Anderson Paak and The Free Nationals hit the Fortnite Studios Stage in LA for a 50+ minute performance. Fortnite gamers simply had to head to the Party Royale’s Main Stage to watch the show. You can check out the full concert below.

Unlike the Travis Scott and Marshmello Fortnite concerts where an animated version of the performer was implemented into the game, The Spotlight Series features the actual artist. It’s more keen to watching a concert on TV and will have 3 opportunities to view each respective event.

The next event will take place live at 5pm ET on September 26th and will feature electronic music producer, Slushii. Rocket League Radio is an in-game “radio-station” that allows you to control the music in the game and has teamed up with The Spotlight series on the upcoming event.

Video games have provided a unique platform for musicians, often putting them in the ears of gamers that otherwise wouldn’t hear them. From the indie rock hits in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater on the OG Playstation, to Travis Scott taking gamers on an Astronomical journey in Fortnite, mainstream music has infused itself to compliment the gaming culture. People spend countless hours listening to music, playing video games and watching television so creating an environment where the gamer can get all three is bound to keep players glued to their respective gaming screens.

Gaming is a billion dollar industry that has millions of consumers per gaming title. With the majority of the worlds venues closed, it only makes sense that musicians and entertainers take their talents to the virtual masses.
