Fortnite is having a Summer Block Party in LA

Are you a fan of Fortnite? Are you in the Los Angeles area? If the answer is both, then you should put down the Fortnite Summer Block Party on your calendar. Epic Games is throwing a huge two-day event for the free-to-play battle royale game during the weekend after E3 2019, and it’s going to a lot of fun.

The first-ever Fortnite Summer Block Party will be held on June 15 and 16 at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. It will feature influencers and celebrities like Ninja, Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco, Dillon Francis, KittyPlays, Cray and Jordan Fisher.

On June 15th, celebrities, YouTubers and streamers will compete in the first-ever Creative tournament, the player-made game made just for the event. On June 16th, the Celebrity Pro-Am will be back for its second year where the winning team will get the Victory Royale.

Tickets for Fortnite Summer Block Party start at $35 where fans can attend both days including access to the Fortnite Fan Festival. Over 20 characters from the game will make appearances including Peely, Fishstick and Brite Bomber. Other activities include gliding on the island’s ziplines, playing at the Pirate Ship and Fortnite Mini Golf attractions and in-game eateries Durr Burger, Pizza Pete’s, Sofdeez Ice Cream Shop and more.

“As gaming solidifies its position as one of the fastest-growing consumer trends globally, we are excited to work with Epic Games to provide Fortnite’s 250 million-player fan base the opportunity to get even closer to the action,” said Stuart Saw, SVP of eSports, Endeavor. “The Summer Block Party will demonstrate the collective power of the Fortnite community and the strength of the brand, building on the success of last year’s record-breaking Pro-Am Charity Tournament.”

If you were lucky enough to register as a verified fan, you’ll get to chance to buy pre-sale tickets starting from Wednesday, May 15 at 10 am PT through Thursday, May 16 at 10 pm PT. The general public on-sale starts on Friday, May 17th at 10 am PT.
