There are more than three dozen tunes in the Fortnite Festival setlist. But as you might expect, not all of those are available when you first take the stage. Here’s how to get more songs for both the Main Stage and the Jam Stage.

How to Unlock More Songs in Fortnite Festival Explained

Adding more tracks to your library follows a similar pattern to most anything else in Epic’s now genre-bending battle royale experience. To unlock more music, you’ll need to buy tracks with V-Bucks, buy the Opening Night Pass, and/or complete Festival challenges.

You’ll start with two Jam Tracks in your inventory. Though I don’t 100% know if it’s the same for everyone, I started with OG (Future Remix) and Show Them Who We Are in my locker, both Epic Games originals. Five additional tracks are available as part of the free portion of the pass, while four are part of the premium portion.

  • Free Reward Track Songs (EGS Originals)
    • Butter Barn Hoedown: 2,000 Festival Points (FP).
    • Take Me Higher: 4,000 FP.
    • Switch Up: 6,000 FP.
    • Run It: 8,000 FP.
    • Brace for Chaos: 10,000 FP.
  • Premium Reward Track Songs
    • My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark: 3,000 FP (Fall Out Boy).
    • Gangnam Style: 5,000 FP (PSY).
    • Poison: 7,000 FP (Bell Biv Devoe).
    • Blinding Lights: 9,000 FP (The Weeknd).

How to Get More Festival Points

Festival Points come from completing challenges, and there are quite a few to choose from across five different categories. While some teach you the ropes of Fortnite Festival and are quite fun, others are admittedly grindy, especially considering the relatively small size of the song catalog.

All you have to do is play on the Main Stage or the Jam Stage; maximize your gains by completing the daily and weekly challenges. Also keep track of your seasonal milestones, which expire on February 22, 2024. There are four of these with 20 levels each.

Here’s a sampling of what you can expect from the challenges in general:

  • Play three songs on drums: 5 points.
  • Jam for five minutes on the Jam Stage: 60 points.
  • Complete three daily quests: 85 points.
  • Play 15 new or featured songs: 420 points.

How to Get Festival Tracks in the Item Shop

As expected, there are some songs in the Item Shop, too. Many of these, such as Dirty Little Secret by All-American Rejects and Bad Romance by Lady Gaga, can only be purchased with V-Bucks.

There are 16 tracks here, with some rotating in and out with each shop refresh. If you really want to add everything to your music library, you’ll have to shell out for some of these. Each track costs 500 V-Bucks.

How to Add Jam Tracks

It’s worth noting that you can play all of these tracks on the Main Stage at some point. I haven’t purchased any, but I can play songs from Item Shop artists on the Main Stage. Buying these tracks allows you to add them to your Jam Tracks list to play in the Battle Royale and on the Jam Stage.

Once you get more songs, go to your Locker and click Jam Tracks at the bottom of the left-hand menu. Songs automatically slot into open spots. Click an occupied slot to change the song, or click an open spot to add one. Be sure to save your Jam Tracks before heading to the stage!

Other music games launched with far more and far more variety (though I do admit some of those Epic songs slap).
