It's no secret Marshmello is a big Fortnite fan. The "Happier" producer won Epic Games' E3 celebrity invitational alongside his famous streaming friend Ninja in 2018, but fans and gamers will be shocked to hear that he might soon take the stage for a digital, in-game concert.

According to a report in Forbes, leaked coding from some planned Fortnite updates seem to imply that Marshmello will host a free, in-game concert at Fortnite's Pleasant Park. The leak also seems to detail planned Marshmello skins, weaponry, dances and other goodies for players, either for purchase or as rewards for completing certain challenges. It appears that players will be able to kill one another in the game and respawn during the concert. How this works in actual game-play is yet to be seen.

If the report is true, the Marshmello concert is planned fro Saturday at 2 p.m. in Fortnite's Pleasant Park neighborhood. Billboard Dance reached out to Marshmello's team for comment. Read more via Forbes.
