Astronomical was a live event in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was to promote the Travis Scott x Fortnite promotion. A total of 5 screenings of the event took place, each with different times, allowing less lag and trouble getting into servers, as well as allowing more people from around the globe to view it. It was a recreation of all of the major Live Events in Season 3 to Season X in Chapter 1.Two days before, a set of challenges were released allowing players to unlock free rewards. The list of challenges can be found here. You could earn the Astroworld Cyclone glider and 2 loading screens by attending the event, and a spray, a banner icon, and an emote from completing the challenges. The playlists opened 30 minutes prior to the event.
The event featured a concert hosted by Travis Scott.
At the beginning of the event, the Storm disappeared, and the stage started to light up. Astroworld started to fly towards the ground as reference to the Meteor Event, eventually appearing behind the stage as the ending to his song "Highest in the Room" plays.
The first beat of SICKO MODE then started playing as the purple meteor surrounding the Astro World crashed onto the right side of the stage, blowing players away from it, as a giant Travis Scott rose from the stage's debris.
Travis started teleporting all around Sweaty Sands as he continued singing SICKO MODE. As the Players gets teleported into the middle of an equalizer, sliding it down, and bouncing upon dropping onto the floor of Sweaty Sands. The players received a low gravity effect (similar to the one at the CUBE's anti-gravity fields or to the one produced when a Hop Rock is consumed) as Travis going around the map with holograms of modified Corrupted Voyager in a circle, he then grabs two star dust from the sky and crashes them together, causing an explosion as reference to the Volcano Eruption from The Unvaulting Event.
The whole sky turned red as the whole map went on fire, and an amusement park formed in the background with a Ferris Wheel and a Rollercoaster on fire whilst Travis was glitching. Travis then gets struck by lightning, damaging him, thus turning him into his T-3500 edit style, as the players' character gets its walking speed a lot faster (similar to the one gained after consuming a Pepper) as he started singing Stargazing, only for him to started to glitch and then he disappeared.
Only for a moment as Travis jumped down from nowhere and started singing GOOSEBUMPS, as a rollercoaster started coming out of Astro World, touching the water of Sweaty Sands, and the whole map turned pitch black and all neon colors. Eventually everything turned back to normal, as T-3500 fell down backwards and the whole map gets flooded in water whilst meteors were falling down from the sky, this particular section has a Diving mechanic.
Underwater, with the first half of HIGHEST IN THE ROOM playing, Astro Jack came down from above, sinking, while Skull Troopers swam around the bottom of the "ocean", as reference to The Devouror from The Final Showdown event. The third part of Sicko Mode then started playing, and players were stuck on a grid floor sliding left and right whilst the Astro Jack kept dancing, with LLion making a cameo appearance in the background, only for Astro Jack to flip the island.
The Players flew out of the map and into the sky on Astro Jack's head as "THE SCOTTS" begins playing. There, glimpses of previous islands (including the Chapter 2: Season 3's map) can be seen below. Astro Jack flew while sitting on what seems to be Mars or the Moon, while a few shooting stars passed by as the purple meteor that surrounding Astro World from the beginning of the event then hit its surface with Astro Jack started striding around Astro World, as THE SCOTTS' (Travis and Kid Cudi's) brand-new song, finished up playing, as Astroworld started to break into pieces, and the loudspeaker began to turn into the Cube and explodes, as reference to the Cube Event.
The Players are then teleported to be the Black Hole from the The End event as the Butterfly from the Butterfly Event appeared. When the players touched it, they were sent back to the normal island. Then the show was over.
