Flash Mob Takes Over Times Square with The Weeknd Lookalikes Dancing to “Blinding Lights”

On a lively Saturday night in the heart of Manhattan, 300 enthusiastic flash mobbers in their finest After Hours-era attire, took over the iconic red TKTS staircase. This lively gathering marked a celebration in honor of the Fortnite Festival, officially launched on December 9. The festival introduces a groundbreaking multi-platform music game, allowing players to form bands with friends or take the solo stage to perform chart-topping hits by their favorite artists.

The Weeknd, featured prominently in the game’s trailer, held the prestigious position as the inaugural headline act. The celebration reached its crescendo with the flash mob’s spirited performance of The Weeknd’s 2020 megahit “Blinding Lights,” captivating an audience of nearly 15,000. Fortnite, renowned for its innovative integration of music, has previously hosted in-game concerts featuring acclaimed artists like Travis Scott and Eminem.

Harmonix, the video game company celebrated for Rock Band, is the creative force behind this latest gaming experience. Fortnite Festival offers users a rhythmic gameplay adventure, allowing them to explore a vast library of licensed global hits spanning various genres and decades. Players can seamlessly switch between playing guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums, or showcasing their vocal prowess.
