Each show offers its own interactive in-game experience. In October 2021Egyptian superstar Mohamed Hamaki made an appearance in Fortnite. In January, Australian singer-songwriter Tones And I. Then it was the turn of Brazilian rapper Emicida. At the last Soundwave event in June, Japanese pop star and music producer Gen Hoshino took the stage.

And now, successful French-Malian singer Aya Nakamurains is in the limelight.

How can I join the Soundwave event in Fortnite?

To participate, simply join the SOUNDWAVE SERIES: AYA NAKAMURA mode in the Discovery tile anytime from Thursday, October 6, 2022 at 6:00 PM CEST or enter the island code 3500-0540-0065. The show will repeat non-stop for 72 hours until Sunday, October 9 at 6:00 p.m. CEST, so if you can’t be there right away, no problem.

You also have the option to watch the show in Battle Royale mode via Picture-in-Picture. However, this is only possible at certain times during the event and you can access it through the settings.

  • Thursday, October 6 at 6:00 p.m. CEST
  • Friday, October 7 at 9:00 p.m. CEST

How do I get Aya Nakamura’s Girlfriends emote?

If you’re a die-hard Aya Nakamura fan, you can pick up the Girlfriends emote from the Item Shop to match the event. It will probably cost between 300 and 500 V-Bucks and will be available from Thursday, October 6 at 02:00 CEST.

Aya’s hit “Girlfriends”, taken from her album Nakamura, is also one of the songs played during the event!

We hope you have a lot of fun at the show!
