The Fortnite Team

Get ready for the soundwave. 🔊

The first show of the Fortnite Soundwave Series — a series of musical shows featuring artists from around the world — begins October 1, 2021. Every show takes place in its own interactive experience in-game. The first artist in the line-up? You may have heard him on the radio in Fortnite recently: Egyptian superstar Mohamed Hamaki

Over the coming months, Australian singer-songwriter Tones And I, Brazilian rapper Emicida, Japanese pop artist and music producer Gen Hoshino, and record-breaking French-Malian singer Aya Nakamura will have their own shows to experience in Fortnite. Keep an eye out for details as the soundwave goes on. 🎵

Hamaki Show Content Creation

Content Creators in the Support-A-Creator (SAC) program will be able to host VOD content from the Hamaki show on YouTube and monetize it. Monetization of VOD content will be active for seven days, and no takedown notifications should occur afterwards. More info:

  • In order to monetize their Hamaki show content, 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 your channel’s platform policies for tips on how to avoid copyright strikes.

  • Not in SAC? Don’t worry, you can still share your highlights from the experience. However, you will not be able to monetize this content on YouTube.
