The first ever live virtual concert inside of Fortnite with millions of people in attendance.

I've never been to a Marshmello concert, or any EDM show for that matter, but I can only assume this was a kid-friendly version of what takes place. The Showtime Event takes place at 2 p.m. EST on all platforms.

If you missed it, don't worry, we suspect there are quite a few people who streamed the event and are uploading to YouTube as we speak. But perhaps smartest of all, this was not an event for Marshmello fans in the way that previous virtual concerts have been. But what made the concert even cooler was the fact that Epic had programmed certain things to happen during specific moments.

The event has gone down as a huge success, both Marshmello and Fortnite are trending on Twitter worldwide.

The first of the Showtime challenges asks you to search a Showtime poster.

In addition to that, you're tasked with visiting the Showtime venue-which is located in Pleasant Park-and using Keep It Mello a trucker's oasis, ice cream parlor, and a frozen lake.

The tracks, as seen on iTunes, showcase the music that will be played at Pleasant Park today for all those who survive long enough to watch the concert. Guests were given special Marshmello themed skins and a pickaxe.

Until the others unlock, that leaves you to merely track down a showtime poster.

Some Marshmellow-related items will be available in the game too.
