Fortnite’s new no-guns “party royale” mode just launched on Wednesday, and the new map played host to its first live concert Friday evening. DJ and producer Diplo performed a live Major Lazer set, and actor and performer Jordan Fisher also made appearances before and after the show.

The concert was held at the big, music festival-like main stage on the east side of the island. Because there are no weapons in the new mode, attendees didn’t have to worry about defending themselves, which, for me, made it easier to just enjoy the show.

If you missed the event on Friday, there’s an in-game rebroadcast scheduled for Saturday at 10AM ET, according to Epic Games. You can also watch this full video of Diplo’s performance captured by GameSpot:

Last week, Fortnite played host to multiple Travis Scott concerts, which my colleague Andrew Webster found to be surreal and spectacular. The first show had 12.3 million concurrent participants, a record for a Fortnite live event, topping last year’s Marshmello concert, which had 10.7 million attendees.

Update May 2nd, 9:09AM ET: Made changes to reflect that the event took place since this article was originally posted, added a video of Diplo’s performance, and noted that a rebroadcast is scheduled for Saturday morning.
