Epic Games is hosting a Fortnite Summer Block Party next month. The two-day celebration event will take place June 15-16 at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. Fans can purchase tickets to watch popular streamers and celebrities like Ninja, KittyPlays, and Brendon Urie (Panic! At the Disco) compete in Fortnite tournaments.

The Fortnite Summer Block Party will be operated by sports and entertainment company Endeavor.

“As gaming solidifies its position as one of the fastest-growing consumer trends globally, we are excited to work with Epic Games to provide Fortnite’s 250 million-player fan base the opportunity to get even closer to the action,” said Stuart Saw, SVP of eSports, Endeavor. “The Summer Block Party will demonstrate the collective power of the Fortnite community and the strength of the brand, building on the success of last year’s record-breaking Pro-Am Charity Tournament.”

The first day of the event will feature popular Fortnite streamers competing in the first-ever Fortnite Creative tournament. They’ll compete in new player-made games made specifically for the event. The following day will feature the return of the Celebrity Pro-Am for Fortnite Battle Royale.

Pre-sale registration is available now through Ticketmaster, until Monday, May 13 at 10 pm Pacific/1 am Eastern. Presale tickets will run from May 15 to 16. Tickets will become available to the general public beginning Friday May 17 at 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern. Tickets start at $35 for both days.
