A recent leak has fans buzzing with excitement as a long-requested feature for Fortnite Festival may finally arrive in an upcoming update.

Originally launched as a rhythm game spinoff of the popular Epic Games battle royale, Fortnite Festival draws inspiration from legendary rhythm games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. With over 180 songs available through the in-game Item Shop and frequent Festival Passes, players have enjoyed a rich musical experience.

Developed by Harmonix, Fortnite Festival has done an excellent job capturing the spirit of the Rock Band series. Earlier this year, peripheral developer PDP announced that it would create a guitar controller for Fortnite Festival, marking the return of plastic peripherals for the first time since 2015. The game has also seen numerous seasons and Festival Passes, offering exclusive cosmetics and songs to its dedicated fanbase. Next on the upgrade list is Fortnite Festival's lobby.

According to Dexerto, a significant leak from well-known Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR revealed that Fortnite Festival will soon allow players to select different Jam Tracks as lobby music. This means players can enjoy their favorite songs from Fortnite Festival in the game’s menu.

Until now, players could play Fortnite Festival’s lobby music as Jam Tracks, and many had hoped the feature would be reciprocated. While the exact launch date for this upgrade was not disclosed in the leak, the news has already sparked excitement among fans.

This upgrade will make Fortnite Festival’s diverse range of musical genres available in the game’s menus. The lineup includes everything from pop icons like Lady Gaga and LMFAO to metal giants like Disturbed and Slipknot.

The upcoming lobby music update joins a wave of new content across Fortnite’s various spinoffs. The Psyonix-developed Rocket Racing is rumored to be getting a battle pass, and LEGO Fortnite recently expanded with two new islands: "LEGO Wing Walkers" and "LEGO Smoothie Odyssey."

The Fortnite Festival lobby music upgrade promises to enhance the fan experience, letting players enjoy their favorite in-game tracks even more.
