A celebration of the rapper’s life will take place tonight in Los Angeles
Mac Miller tragically died from a drug overdose at his home in the San Fernando Valley on September 7th, and while nothing will ever fill the void the 26-year-old musician left behind, tonight we get to celebrate his life.
Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life, a tribute concert for Malcolm McCormick (aka Mac Miller), will take place tonight at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles at 6:30pm PT / 9:30pm ET, which means it’ll go live in the UK at 01:30am.
Put together by Mac’s family – his mother, Karen Meyers, his father, Mark McCormick and brother, Miller McCormick, along with Christian and Kelly Clancy of 4 Strikes management, the concert will be livestreamed for audiences worldwide via various streaming partners, including TIDAL, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
Artists and friends of Mac Miller who will be performing on the night include Action Bronson, Miguel, SZA, Ty Dolla $ign, Chance the Rapper, Anderson .Paak, John Mayer, Earl Sweatshirt, J.I.D., ScHoolboy Q, Vince Staples, Dylan Reynolds, Domo Genesis, Njomza, Thundercat, Travis Scott, and more.
Presented in partnership with Live Nation, it will benefit and celebrate the launch of the Mac Miller Circles Fund (MMCF).
In honour of Mac’s commitment to the arts, the MMCF will provide programming, resources, and opportunities to youth from underserved communities, helping them recognise their full potential through exploration in the arts and community building.
In addition to livestreaming the event, many of the streaming platforms taking part will offer viewers the opportunity to donate to The Mac Miller Circles Fund. Viewers can expect donation opportunities on Facebook, LiveXLive, TIDAL, and Twitter. To learn more about the charity, visit: http://www.TMMCF.org.
