Epic Games has announced that it will be holding a two-day Summer Block Party event for Fortnite next month.

The event takes place on June 15th and June 16th at the Forum in Inglewood, California and will feature appearances from Ninja, Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco, Dillon Francis, Kitty Plays, Cray, and Jordan Fisher.

The first day of the event will see celebrities and streamers battle it out in the first ever Creative tournament, which pits eight teams of four against each other in a new player-made game mode that has been designed for the event.  Following this on Sunday, June 16th, will be the return of the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am, which sees 50 teams competing for the Victory Royale.

“Meet more than 20 of your favorite Fortnite characters including Peely, Fishstick, and Brite Bomber. Glide on the island’s ziplines, visit the Pirate Ship, or play a round of Fortnite Mini Golf,” the developer adds. “Get your fill at the Durr Burger, Pizza Pete’s, Sofdeez Ice Cream Shop and other in-game eateries brought to life. You can even complete a real-world Battle Pass to earn collectible swag.”

Tickets for the event are due to go on sale soon for $35 via Ticketmaster. Preregistration is available now via Fortnite’s Ticketmaster Verified Fan website to “be among the first to be notified” when tickets go on sale.
