Mac Miller’s family has announced A Celebration of Life, a show benefiting the newly launched Mac Miller Circles Fund (MMCF).

“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing line-up and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,” Karen Meyers, Mac’s mother, said in a press release Tuesday. “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.”

Travis Scott, SZA, John Mayer, Action Bronson, Chance the Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, Thundercat, and Vince Staples are among those on the lineup for the show. Tickets for the event, set for Oct. 31 at the Greek in Los Angeles, will be available via the official MMCF site from 10 a.m. local time Oct. 5. The flyer for the show was designed by Mac’s brother Miller McCormick.

All net proceeds from tickets to the show will be given to MMCF, which will be co-managed by Mac’s estate, family, an advisors board, and the 4 Strikes management team. MMCF aims to help young people in underserved communities by giving them access to programming and additional resources centered on creativity and community building.

Miller died Sept. 7 at his home in Studio City. Just one month earlier, he had released his fifth studio album Swimming, featuring A Celebration of Life performers Thundercat and John Mayer. “This was going to be Mac Miller’s year,” Mayer later said in an Instagram tribute.
