LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – Mac Miller’s family announced
that this week’s benefit concert honoring the late rapper will
be livestreamed on Facebook, LiveXLive, TIDAL, Twitter, WAV, and
YouTube. It will begin at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT on
Wednesday, Oct. 31.
The show will feature Miller’s friends and collaborators
such as Travis Scott, Chance the Rapper, SZA, John Mayer, Earl
Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, Anderson.Paak, Miguel, Schoolboy Q,
Thundercat, Vince Staples and more.
Following Miller’s death on Sept. 7 of an apparent drug
overdose, his family announced that the concert will benefit the
launch of the Mac Miller Circles Fund, which will support youth
arts and community-building programs in Miller’s memory.
“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing
line-up and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,”
Miller’s mother, Karen Meyers previously said.
“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.”
