Fortnite's first major live event in the United Kingdom, Red Bull Contested, will take place June 10 at McEwan Hall in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Jaden "Wolfiez" Ashman headlines the list of players scheduled to compete in "a unique solos format that rewards aggressive play and a truly clutch mentality," organizers said in a news release Thursday.

In an eight-round format created specifically for Red Bull Contested, eliminations will be worth double points in the last four rounds.

"This event is going to be massive for Fortnite in the UK -- the best players all here for a major tournament, and with a proper Red Bull twist, there hasn't been anything like it here," said Wolfiez, the youngest esports player to reach $1 million in earnings.

The elite list of invited players also includes Martin "MrSavage" Foss Andersen, Harry "Veno" Pearson, Thomas "Th0masHD" Hoxbro Davidsen and Zachariah "Pinq" Siddall.

Open online qualifiers for amateur players in the UK and European Union will take place on May 20-21 to determine the final wild-card spots in the field.
