Mac’s family have organised a star-studded memorial concert in his honour.
Following Mac Miller’s tragic death aged just 26-years-old, his family have organised a memorial concert, Mac Miller: A Celebration Of Life.
The concert will take place on 31st October at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and the proceeds of the event will benefit the launch of the Mac Miller Circles Fund (MMCF), a new foundation to provide help and resources for arts education in underserved communities.
Mac’s mother, Karen Meyers, said in a statement, “The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing line-up and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life.
"His father, brother and I are beyond thankful to everyone who is working to make this concert happen along with every fan and every friend for continuing to support Malcolm and his vision.
“He was a caring, loving human with a smile that could light up the sky and a soul that was out to make the world a kinder place and the MMCF will continue to do just that.”
The line up will include Anderson.Paak, Chance the Rapper, John Mayer, Miguel, SZA, Thundercat, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign and more, with tickets going on sale 5th October.
Mac was found dead last month, with initial reports suggesting the cause to be a cardiac arrest due to a possible drug overdose. Mac had been open in his music and interviews about his struggles with addiction, which he had tried to fight.
