The Fortnite Team

You’ve seen her in a crown, now see her in Fortnite. Award-winning artist Billie Eilish is the Icon of Fortnite Festival Season 3!

Fortnite Festival Season 3

Season 3 sounds off today and ends June 13, 2024, at 12 AM ET. During this time, keep up the tempo to unlock new Instruments, Jam Tracks, and other items in the Season 3 Festival Pass, which has a free reward track and a Premium Reward Track upgrade.

Feel a surge of boldness with the Premium Reward Track — upon purchasing this extra layer of unlockable rewards, you’ll automatically receive the Green Roots Billie Outfit!


Keep An Ear to the Festival Pass Tab

Season 3’s a lost cause if you’re not at the right venue. When you enter the Lobby of a Fortnite Festival experience (“Main Stage” or “Jam Stage”), head to Festival Pass in the top navigation. Here you’ll find the Season 3 Festival Pass and a button to view Festival Quests!

Fortnite Festival Season 3 Content Creation

Wanting to make Season 3 content for YouTube? This Season, content creators in the Support-A-Creator (SAC) program will be able to host VOD content on YouTube featuring the below selection of Jam Tracks (and their loops) and monetize it. 

Jam Track selection:

  • Rob Zombie - Dragula

  • Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop

  • Rancid - Ruby Soho

  • Metallica - Fuel


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! No takedown notifications should occur during the Jam Track selection’s time window.

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's 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 3 featuring the selected Jam Tracks. However, you will not be able to monetize this content on YouTube.

The general recommendation is to disable VODs/clips when streaming Fortnite Festival. For more information, see Twitch’s DMCA & Copyright FAQs help page.


Improvements and Fixes


Pro Lead and Pro Bass

  • Added two new song parts: Pro Lead and Pro Bass! All current and future Jam Tracks now have these two playable song parts, accessible on the Main Stage with a guitar controller. 

    • Pro Lead and Pro Bass have hammer-on and pull-off notes. When you have a streak going, you can hit these notes without strumming!

    • Pro Lead and Pro Bass have colored notes for each lane, corresponding with the guitar controller's buttons.

    • Leaderboards now have new listings to support Pro Lead and Pro Bass scores. Climb to the top!

  • To support the release of Pro Lead and Pro Bass, we’ve updated the Overdrive color for all song parts from bright orange to silver-white. How you gather and activate Overdrive hasn’t changed, but we felt with the added note colors that Overdrive needed to appear more distinct.

  • For now, the whammy bar only provides a visual effect. There is no audio distortion or extra Overdrive energy when whammying.

  • We’re continuing to improve the feel of playing with a guitar controller and want your feedback! For rhythm-rocking veterans, there may be situations where you miss a note you’d expected to hit, or where a familiar Jam Track feels different. Let us know your thoughts as you don the axe in Fortnite Festival. We’re excited to see you shred!


Tuning Up

  • The Music Library now shows an expanded set of stats, showing your selected Instrument type’s best performance in each Jam Track row.

  • The Music Library is now also ordered with new and featured Jam Tracks at the top by default (this can be re-sorted), allowing players with large libraries to easily access Quest-relevant Jam Tracks.

  • New Wristband Quests and rewards have been added. 

  • Season 2 leaderboard scores have been recorded and archived. The leaderboards await your new top performances with Season 3! 

  • For more convenient song selection, you'll be closer to the organ when you arrive Backstage. No more sprinting to make your setlist!

  • There are more stats on the Results screen after each performance. You can now see the percentage of notes hit and missed and the average from your other performances to see how you’ve improved.

  • We’ve reordered the song parts selection menu to Vocals > Bass > Lead > Drums.

  • We fixed a bug that was granting a “Double Overdrive” meter during certain note sections. 

  • Made various other fixes and improvements.
