To get the Billie Eilish skin in Fortnite, players need to buy the Fortnite Festival season 3 Festival Pass.

Pictured above, the Green Roots Billie Outfit will unlock instantly for any players who buy this season's Festival Pass. It's a Premium Track reward that you'll get straightaway after buying the pass.

The Festival Pass costs 1,800 V-Bucks, which makes this a fairly standard price Fortnite skin.

Better yet, if you progress the premium Festival Pass all the way to its conclusion, you'll also unlock an alternate style for the Billie Eilish skin. This 'Ultraviolet' version of the skin sees Billie's T-shirt turn black.

Adding an important disclaimer, Epic states on its website: "The Ultraviolet Style of the Green Roots Billie Outfit is exclusive to the Season 3 Festival Pass. The other content of the Season 3 Festival Pass is NOT exclusive to Fortnite Festival Season 3, and may become purchasable in the Shop at a later date."

When is Billie Eilish coming to Fortnite? Release date confirmed

Billie Eilish is in Fortnite right now, as of 23rd April 2024, after being made the headliner for Fortnite Festival.

Eilish took to X (formerly Twitter) to announce her digital debut as part of Fortnite Festival Season 3.

As with most Fortnite developments, the news of her joining was rumoured, leaked, speculated and mused upon, but that didn’t do much to abate fans' excitement.

Billie joins the likes of Lady Gaga and The Weeknd in Fortnite Festival. Who knows what superstar will grace the platform next?

What to expect from Billy Eilish in Fortnite

Quite a lot, actually! Players can play through a number of Eilish’s songs as Jam Tracks, with more reportedly set to appear as the season progresses.

Currently, players can jam out to:

  • All the Good Girls Go to Hell
  • Happier Than Ever – Edit
  • Oxytocin
  • Therefore I Am

Of those, Oxytocin is in the paid track of the Fortnite Festival Pass. The others should be in the Item Shop to buy.

There are two Billie-themed instruments to unlock, as well - the Burial Mic and the Sleeper Keys Keytar.

You can also unlock the Bad Guy and You Should See Me in a Crown emotes in the Fortnite Item Shop, too.

Further down the road, we’ll get more items and another 0utfit (all of which should come to the Item Shop), so definitely keep an eye out on what’s to come if you’re an Eilish fan!

You can check it all out in the Fortnite Festival Season 3 patch notes.
