Even before concerts were forced online due to the ongoing pandemic, Epic Games' flagship title, Fortnite, was hosting full-scale events. After a groundbreaking performance from Marshmello in 2019, they would go on to invite Travis Scott, J Balvin, BTS, deadmau5, and more to the virtual stage. Now, celebrating his recent crossover with Epic Games' recently-acquired title, Rocket League, Kaskade is primed for an in-game performance.
Seemingly due to the nature of the games themselves, the event will not actually take place in the Rocket League application, but rather in the world of Fortnite and the Houseparty app. However, this does not mean there won't be tons of rocket-powered car soccer elements included. Organizers promise a show that will see Kaskade pilot some of the in-game vehicles and travel through many of the game's arenas in what they call a "festival-style performance."
As fans of the Chicago producer or game may remember, Kaskade has been releasing music with Monstercat, songs of which went on to comprise his recently released Reset EP. Each tracks was included in Rocket League on its release date and was available to use in-game as a player anthem.
