Fortnite Reveals Details About The Next Party Royale With Diplo

Epic Games dropped some new details this morning about the next Party Royale happening in Fortnite, featuring Diplo as the main artist. This one will be a little bittersweet as it will be the last of the summer to feature him, but the devs and Diplo will be going out in style with this event. The party will take place on the Main Stage this Friday, July 31st at 2pm ET/11am PT, for a live performance of Diplo Presents: Higher Ground, which will be "a deep house musical show featuring trance-inducing, sophisticated beats". You can check out more details below about what will be happening at the event, as well as the encore and party favors you will get for the event.
