Facts: Marshmello added Pleasant Park to its upcoming tour schedule. That's according to Game Awards founder Geoff Keighley, and if he's right, that would make Marshmello's show about three times as well-attended as the biggest-ever concert in the world. At the time of writing, the venue is set up and ready for the in-game Marshmello concert that will take place Saturday. The Showtime Event takes place at 2 p.m. EST on all platforms. "So insane, thank you Epic Games and everyone who made this possible!" Does this mean we'll eventually see mainstream artists holding virtual concerts for countless millions of fans?
The Fortnite Marshmello concert event was intially leaked in the v7.30 files with data-miners finding the Marshmello cosmetics before finding the "Festivus" event in the files.
We've seen this in-game concert thing before, but not on this scale.

The reward you will obtain with the completion of this particular challenge.
The first of the Showtime challenges asks you to search a Showtime poster. All you have to do is head over to the football field in Pleasant Park.
It combined integrated merchandise (Marshmello dances and skins), a global shared experience that was also personal (only 50 gamers per game) and unique gameplay (gamers floated up into the sky). Searching the Showtime Poster will reward you with a Marshmello spray.
Some Marshmellow-related items will be available in the game too.
