Earlier this year (23rd to 25th April), we saw Travis Scott’s Astronomical event in Fortnite, which turned out to be a huge success. It was attended live by over 12.3 million participants, with more than 27 million unique participants. Furthermore, the spectacle resulted in an increase of 1.4 million followers for Travis Scott across social media handles, along with a 419% increase in the demand for tickets.
Afterwards, during an interview, Scott said that virtual spaces might be the future for all entertainment events. He also suggested that the ability to control the atmosphere added a new dimension to performances. “I could go from being myself to underwater; the stage could go underwater without anybody getting hurt — all of the things I would want to do in real life.”
You can have a look at the full event below.
