Epic Games is recognized for its enthusiasm in showcasing diverse elements of popular cultures, such as the latest TV shows or trending musicians. As an example, the Coachella Music and Arts Festival 2023 has returned to Fortnite, featuring additional musical experiences and cosmetic items for players to indulge in. By visiting Coachella Island, players can earn XP and unlock cosmetics. Additionally, those who participate in Battle Royale can catch a glimpse of the Coachella 2023 offerings through Icon Radio.
Fortnite will feature a Coachella 2023-inspired island made in Creative 2.0.
Alliance Studios, in collaboration with Epic Games, has created a new experience on Fortnite called Coachella Island, available in the Discover section from April 14 at 3 PM ET to April 28, 2023, at 12 PM ET.

To access the island, players can go to the Discovery page, select the Island Code option, enter the code 5449-4207-1280, and press enter. The island may also be featured in the “Epic’s Picks” section of the Discovery page. Once on the Creative island, players can join up with others and enjoy different games and music, including performances by Porter Robinson, one of the Coachella performers.
