The summer isn't ending without one more Fortnite Diplo concert! Yes, after the success of DIPLO Presents: Thomas Wesley, the DJ is closing out the season with a live performance entitled "Diplo Presents: Higher Ground" that's going to be packed with more beats than you can dance to (at a social distance).

Oh, and there's a door prize for all partiers: a "music-reactive' Afterparty Wrap that turns your gear alive has been handed out to all Fortnite players, starting yesterday (July 30) at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. 

While we might see some surprise names added to the set list, this Fortnite Diplo event is unlike the last set that featured Young Thug: it's all Diplo. Here's a trailer for Diplo Presents: Higher Ground:

Fortnite's series of online events started with concerts featuring Marshmello and Travis Scott. This summer, director Christopher Nolan and Diplo have both been big names for Fortnite virtual events, throwing parties, screening movies and debuting trailers.

How to watch the Fortnite Diplo concert

Those Fortnite gamers for Diplo's band of online ravers (and not looking for virtual reavers trying to throw down) should sign into the game and then select Party Royale mode. From there, mosey on over to the stage on the west side of the battle island.

If you miss today's live broadcast at 2 p.m. ET, there's gonna be a full rebroadcast on Monday (August 3), starting at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT at the Main Stage.
