With the launch of the new season, Fortnite is all set to celebrate with full blast. So get ready to tune in with the Soundwave Series artist. The Soundwave Series is a series of musical shows featuring artists from around the globe. This time it’s going to be Japanese pop artist and music producer Gen Hoshino. Hoshino’s show is scheduled to begin on 9th June 2022 at 8 AM ET which will go on for 72 hours continuously. Chapter 3 Season 3 will be launched on 5th June so the music festival would be aired just a few days after the launch.
Gen Hoshino to have her own show in the Fortnite Soundwave series
The soundwave series has always been interactive and unique on its own. After Hoshino’s show we will see the next artist who is a record-breaking French-Malian singer Aya Nakamura, she will have her own show in Fortnite in the future. So keep your eye open to get all the details about the upcoming months of the Soundwave Series event.
To make the event feel more real, the creator team 3D lab has worked very hard. They have designed it in such a way that puts players in an evolving space with changing colors, scenery, and activities to match the mood. The motive is to make the players not only feel closer to the artist Hoshino but also to themselves.
The show will feature the song “Koi” from the award-winning album Pop Virus of Hoshino. The song was also released as a single and the music video became a sensation too labeled the “Koi Dance”. Fornite features an emote which imitates the dance moves from the super hit song “Koi” so go ahead and activate the Koi dance emote to show your support and love to Hoshino.

Content creators can monetize from their clips provided they are SAC members
The content creators in the Support – A-Creator (SAC) will get a chance to host VOD content from the Gen Hoshino show on Youtube and can monetize it for seven days and no takedown notification should occur during this time,
- To monetize the show content, SAC members need to link their youtube and Support-A-Creator accounts.
- If uploading the video on youtube, make sure to upload it as unlisted or you might receive a monetization claim if you keep it private.
- If uploading the content on other platforms, go through the channel’s platform policies to avoid copyright strikes.
Not in SAC? Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to share your highlights from the experience. But you will not be able to monetize the content on YouTube. Epic Games won’t be responsible for any copyright issues for the twitch content creators who will stream the Gen Hoshino’s show via twitch. The general recommendation is to disable VODs/clips for the duration of the event.
The show has flashlights so if any player has a history of photosensitivity, we would recommend you to consult a doctor before entering the event. If you feel any discomfort from the screen lightning, immediately discontinue.
