The Sweetener Virtual Release Party is a live event to celebrate the release of Ariana Grande's fourth studio album Sweetener. The event was live-streamed from Grande's home on August 16, 2018.


A few weeks before the album came out, Grande announced that she will host a live stream to celebrate the album's release with her fans by pre-ordering the album on her online shop. The first thousands fans to pre-order received a confirmation e-mail with a unique code to access the live event.

On August 16, 2018 Grande went live from her home in New York, fans could ask questions to the singer, have a talk and hang out before the album's release. During the live stream, she was with many of her friends and family as well as a few members from her team to supervise the event. The event is an hour long, until the album was released at midnight ET (New York time zone).
