Coachella, the annual music and arts festival, is again partnering with Fortnite. Just like in real life, the festivities will run for two action-packed weeks, and you won't want to miss any of it!

Let's review the 2024 iteration of Fortnite x Coachella and what you can expect from the game's collaboration with the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

To celebrate the occasion, Fortnite Festival's Jam Stage is now furnished with iconic monuments from Coachella, like the Le Grande Wheel and the Spectra Tower. Hang out and play music with your friends at the Jam Stage, and feel like you're right there at Coachella! The Main Stage has been Coachella-fied to boot, featuring a themed video screen to enhance the atmosphere.

These changes to the Jam Stage and Main Stage will remain until v29.30!

Coachella-themed Item Shop

The Fortnite Item Shop during Fortnite x Coachella 2024 will star different Coachella-themed Skins, Instruments, Jam Tracks, and more each week of the festivities.

On April 11, 2024, the Horizon and Cosma Outfits will debut in the Item Shop, complete with the Interstellar Butterfly Back Bling, Coachella Pulse Pickaxe, and Soft Synth Wrap. These items all react to music, and both Skins have LEGO Styles!

If you dream of headlining Coachella, you can start by rocking the Jam Stage and Main Stage with the Mirage Glimmer Guitar and Festival Keys Keytar.

Fans of this year's lineup can show their support by grabbing the Rebellious Emote and the Sonic Surfer Emote. The Rebellious Emote features Doja Cat’s hit song "Paint The Town Red”, and the Sonic Surfer Emote uses "Feather" by Sabrina Carpenter.

On top of all that, a slew of Jam Tracks from artists performing at Coachella 2024 will be available in the featured rotation at the Festival Main Stage until April 18, and you can purchase them for keeps in the Item Shop, too:

  • Bleachers - I Wanna Get Better
  • Blur - Song 2
  • Doja Cat - Paint The Town Red
  • Eslabon Armado, Peso Pluma - Ella Baila Sola
  • Lil Uzi Vert ft. Oh Wonder - The Way Life Goes
  • PinkPantheress & Ice Spice - Boy's A Liar Pt. 2
  • Sublime - What I Got
  • Taking Back Sunday - MakeDamnSure

Week 2 of Coachella 2024 in Fortnite is highlighted by the addition of the Inferno Skeleton Balvin Outfit to the Item Shop. You can buy this Skin starting April 18, and it comes with the Zappy-Go-Backy Back Bling. While you can purchase these items individually, you'll get the Mi Gente Jam Track if you opt for the Inferno Skeleton Balvin Bundle.

J Balvin's new Style and accessory cosmetics will stick around the Item Shop until April 22!

Sahara Island

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of Coachella 2024 x Fortnite is Sahara Island. This virtual reimagination of the Sahara Tent from Coachella features musical minigames, hidden remix rooms, and more to discover. Right now, Grimes is headlining the experience made using Unreal Editor for Fortnite, but keep an eye out for other artists!

You can access Sahara Island with the Island Code 5285-0991-5833. Alternatively, if you're feeling nostalgic, you can go back and revisit Coachella Island at Island Code 5449-4207-1280.

A trip to Coachella could set you back thousands of quid, or you can enjoy the offerings in Fortnite for free! Check out Coachella 2024 x Fortnite for a more laidback take on the world-famous music and arts festival.
