Epic Games’ free-to-play game is hosting another concert.

Fortnite’s Travis Scott concert was a huge success and, now, more big-name music acts are about to host their very own gigs in Epic Games’ absurdly successful game. This time it’s Diplo, who will be available to watch in the game’s Party Royale mode. The show is set to begin at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET/2 AM BST. Along with the musical show, the Major Lazer skin pack is on sale for $25.

The Party Royale mode was recently added to Fortnite and is described as a place where developer Epic Games will experiment with experiences. It is being presented as a social space first, which means there’s no building or combat, just hanging out with friends.

“Welcome to Party Royale, a new experimental and evolving space,” Epic said previously. “All chill, no sweat. Leave your weapons and mats behind and hang out with friends, play games, perfect your skydive, and more. The party’s just getting started.”
