Fortnite’s Next In-Game Concert Features The Kid Laroi
Epic Games announced on 23rd January that a new artist is entering the Fortnite Icon Series. This new artist is Australian rapper, singer, and songwriter Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard better known as The Kid Laroi. Epic revealed that Fortnite’s next big virtual music experience will feature The Kid Laroi and that the “immersive sonic experience” will kick off on 27th January. Titled The Kid Laroi’s Wild Dreams island, the interactive experience will portray the artist’s journey from humble beginnings to headlining sold-out performances.
“This island will feature new music from LAROI, including his upcoming song ‘Love Again’ being released Friday, January 27. Also, three unreleased songs will play on both this island and the Afterparty island,” noted Epic Games.
Unlike the Fortnite events that featured Travis Scott and Ariana Grande on the Fortnite Battle Royale Island, The Kid Laroi event will happen on a dedicated creative island built just for this experience.

Epic Games wrote, “Since his ascent in 2019, Australian rapper, singer, and songwriter The Kid LAROI has become a global force to be reckoned with, and soon his emotional bangers and dramatic beats will sound inside Fortnite.”
During this event, players will quest throughout a cybercity named “Laroitown,” and finally attend the concert. After the performance ends, players can join Laroi for the Afterparty, where they can listen to the Wild Dreams mix on a loop and also get a closer look at his life.
In both experiences, players will be able to complete The Kid Laroi Wild Dreams quests for XP and special items including the Love Again and Thousand Miles lobby tracks, the Laroi & The Rogue loading screen, and the Laroi Was Here and Laroi’s tag Sprays. Notably, the Wild Dreams Quests will be available from 27th January till 3rd February.
However, the experience and the island dedicated to The Kid Laroi’s Wild Dreams will be available till 27th April. To join in on the musical event, players need to select the Wild Dreams tile on the Discover screen or input the island code: 2601-0606-9081.
