The Fortnite Team

It’s “opening night” for Fortnite Festival, and what better way to celebrate the launch weekend than with… The Weeknd! The award-winning artist is the featured Icon of Fortnite Festival Season 1: Opening Night.

Fortnite Festival Season 1: Opening Night

Season 1 runs from now until February 22, 2024, at 12 AM ET. During this time, keep the beat going in the Opening Night Festival Pass to unlock new Instruments, Jam Tracks, and more! The Opening Night Festival Pass has a free reward track and a Premium Reward Track upgrade. With the Premium Reward Track, you’ll unlock an extra layer of rewards as you progress, including The Weeknd Outfit!

Keep Tabs on the Festival Pass Tab

Amped about Opening Night? When you enter the Lobby of a Fortnite Festival experience (“Main Stage” or “Jam Stage”), go to Festival Pass in the top navigation. Here you’ll see the Opening Night Festival Pass and a button to view Festival Quests!

Get rewarded for rocking the house. By completing Festival Quests, you can get Festival Points! You’ll progress more in the Opening Night Festival Pass the more Festival Points you get.

Free Reward Track
If you’re split between what your favorite Guitar is, look no further than the Nanner Jammer! The final reward in the free reward track, this Guitar’s always ready for ripe riffs and sweet sounds.

Also in the free track are some classic Lobby Tracks you can earn as Jam Tracks:

  • “Butter Barn Hoedown”

  • “Take Me Higher”

  • “Switch Up”

  • “Run It”

  • “Brace For Chaos”

This is your chance to perform “Butter Barn Hoedown” in front of a stacked crowd.

Fortnite Opening Night Free Reward Track Jam Tracks

Because these five Lobby Tracks have existed in Fortnite previously, players who already had them in their Locker before Fortnite Festival will receive a one-time V-Bucks refund for each one, equivalent to the amount they paid for it. They’ll also be granted the Jam Track version!

Nanner Jammers not enough? Butter Barn Hoedown falling flat? The free reward track also has the Mainstage Feeling Loading Screen, Stellar Burst Aura, and the Equalize & Conquer, High Volume, and Chill Llama Emoticons.
