Billie Eilish is joining Fortnite Festival as its Season 3 act—complete with in-game merch to buy until June 13. Here’s a peek at the details.

Fortnite Festival Season 3 kicked off today and will end on June 13. During this period, players can unlock new instruments, Jam Tracks, and experience an all-new performance. Jam Tracks are sound-loops (kinda like a digital version of HitClips, remember those?) players can use in-game to create a unique mix. Jam Tracks give players access to Jam Loops to create unique mash-ups with others including lead loops, drum loops, vocal loops, and bass loops.

With tons of content to unlock, the update also includes several Billie Eilish-themed items available for purchase in the shop. Three of her biggest hits are available as Jam Tracks including “all the good girls go to hell,” “Happier Than Ever,” and “Therefore I am.” Epic Games says more Billie Eilish items will be added to the shop until the Season’s last set including a “bad guy” Emote and the “you should see me in a crown” emote.

A new Billie Eilish outfit and Jam Tracks from her latest album will be coming to the Shop later—date unspecified.

While Billie Eilish is taking center stage for this season, another great feature added in this update is the ability to use Rock band 4 guitar controllers in Fortnite. There’s a whole list of supported guitars for different platforms, including the Riffmaster Wireless Guitar (PlayStation 5/4, Xbox, PC) and the RockBand 4 Rivals Fender Jaguar & Stratocaster for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Epic says more instrument controller support is coming in the future—so presumably more support is forthcoming. Great news for fans of Guitar Hero—especially since that series has been dead in the water since 2015.

As always, content creators are free to go hog wild featuring the Jam Tracks in this season during a limited window. The selection of Jam Tracks changes each week on Thursdays at 10 am—requiring creators to check on what’s safe to feature. Content creators looking to monetize will need to be a member of the Support-A-Creator program and have a linked YouTube account.
