Ninja Returns to Lollapalooza for Red Bull Outpost event
Tyler "Ninja” Blevins is going to be in attendance for Lollapalooza.
The popular streamer will be hanging out at the annual music festival’s Red Bull Outpost in Chicago from August 2 to 4. A few lucky gamers will have the chance to square up with the Fortnite star at the event.
Fans can enter to win VIP tickets and a personal meet-and-greet opportunity with Ninja himself. The lucky winner will go one-on-one in a game of his choosing.
The Red Bull Outpost is set to be one of the most interesting attractions at Lollapalooza this year.
The outpost is a two-story gaming and music paradise. Alienware and HyperX will fill the first floor with the latest hardware and games. There will also be a lounge serving food and drinks, making it a great place to cool off between performances.
Ninja and company will be in control of the second floor. The space is modeled after his “dojo,” the illuminated Red Bull-themed room featured in Ninja’s backdrop whenever he streams. Lollapalooza says to expect a few surprises throughout the event, which has many expecting other high-profile streamers to swing by during the festival. Ninja and the surprise guests will also take on some of Lollapalooza’s musical acts which should make for some interesting selfies this August.
Also highlighted in the Outpost’s list of festivities is a series of sessions by popular speedrunner David "GrandPOOBear” Hunt. GrandPOOBear’s appearances will also feature a host, surprise guests, and a chance for spectators to make an impact during an interactive game.
This won’t be Ninja’s first time at Lollapalooza. Last year, Ninja hosted Fortnite streams backstage at the event alongside some of the performers. The gameplay was broadcast on Twitch and shown on big screens throughout the festival.
The event also shows that while Ninja’s subscriber count has dipped, his mainstream visibility has not. The streamer enjoyed unprecedented reach last year when he hosted Fortnite streams with rapper Drake. From there, he rubbed shoulders with other celebrities including rapper Travis Scott, and Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster.
Expect him to appear on camera with some other big-name musicians this summer.
