What to Expect from the Fortnite 29.30 Update

This latest update will bring Season 3 of Fortnite Festival and a new Festival Pass. Another star will be the main focus of this pass. Just as last season had the icon Lady Gaga, this season is set to be just as exciting.

Rumors suggest Billie Eilish will be the next star to take center stage in Fortnite Festival but nothing is confirmed yet. Another name swirling around the rumor mill as a potential Fortnite Festival Pass star is Taylor Swift, who has just released her album The Tortured Poets’ Department. As soon as we know more we will keep you updated.
