Fortnite Festival Season 2

Season 2 starts February 22 with v28.30 and ends April 22, 2024, at 12 AM ET. While Season 2 keeps sounding, progress in the Unlock Your Talent Festival Pass to unlock new Instruments, Jam Tracks, and more! This Pass has both a free reward track and Premium Reward Track upgrade.

Go-Go to the Festival Pass Tab

Ready for your rise to glory? When you enter the Lobby of a Fortnite Festival experience (“Main Stage” or “Jam Stage”), go to Festival Pass in the top navigation. This is where you’ll find the Unlock Your Talent Festival Pass and a button to view Festival Quests!

Visualize a perfect streak then clash and bash your way through the Festival Pass. Completing Festival Quests will earn you Festival Points that push you along in the Pass! (More points equals more in-game rewards.)

Free Reward Track

As you’re proceeding in the Pass, keep driving the beat forward with the Woodworker Drums. This final reward of the free reward track is crafted with love and has a warm resonance!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Festival Season without new Jam Tracks. Three new Jam Tracks are waiting to be unlocked in the free reward track: 

  • “8-Bit Beat”

  • “Bloom”

  • “Best Buds”


“8-Bit Beat” and “Best Buds” existed previously in Fortnite as Lobby Tracks. Players who already had them in their Locker before Fortnite Festival Season 2 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!

If you’d rather wow with your style than with music alone, “blow” the minds of your bandmates with the Pop Off Aura or turn your Guitar into a spinstrument with the Strap Spin Emote.

Drummers deserve some showmanship too. When the set’s over, don’t forget to say goodbye with the Backbeat Bow Emote. Thank you and goodnight.

The Strap Spin and Backbeat Bow Emotes are a new type of Emote. Equip these to express yourself with a certain kind of Instrument!

Premium Reward Track

This one’s for all the Little Monsters out there. For 1,800 V-Bucks, purchase the Premium Reward Track where a layer of Lady Gaga rewards await. As a bonus, you’ll instantly unlock the Glitch Groove Aura when you purchase the Premium Reward Track! This isn’t a glitch in the system.

Fortnite Festival Content Creation

Want to create Fortnite Festival content for YouTube? During Season 2, content creators in the Support-A-Creator (SAC) program will be able to host VOD content on YouTube featuring a selection of Jam Tracks and their loops (see below) and monetize it. No takedown notifications should occur during this time. The selection of Jam Tracks will change each week on Thursdays at 10 AM ET, so keep checking back to see what’s safe to feature in your content!

More info:

  • In order to monetize their content featuring the Jam Tracks, SAC members need to link their YouTube and Support-A-Creator accounts.

  • IMPORTANT: When uploading the content to YouTube, be sure to upload it as Unlisted or Public. If you upload the video as Private, it is possible you could receive a monetization claim on your video.

  • For uploading the content on other platforms, refer to the channel’s platform policies for tips on how to avoid copyright strikes.


Although unlikely, if you do receive a claim on any SAC content, there may be a short delay in YouTube processing the release of the claim. During this time, please do not dispute the claim.

Not in SAC? Don’t worry, you can still share your Fortnite Festival experiences on YouTube during Season 2 featuring the selected Jam Tracks. However, you will not be able to monetize this content on YouTube.
