Rapper Mac Miller passed away at the age of 26 from an apparent drug overdose Sept. 7. To honor his memory, a tribute concert titled “Mac Miller: A Celebration Of Life” is being held this Wednesday, Oct. 31 in Los Angeles. But now, fans everywhere will be able to participate in the celebration.
The concert was announced earlier this month and will have performances by Chance The Rapper, SZA, Vince Staples ScHoolboy Q and more. Previously, the only way for people to see the show was to buy a ticket.
Miller’s family, estate and more organized the benefit concert. All proceeds will go to the Mac Miller Circles Fund. The fund in partnership with the Pittsburgh Foundation will provide programming and resources to kids and teenagers from underprivileged communities. Fans can also donate to the fund directly.
Miller’s estate tweeted that there will be a livestream of the event on Twitter at 6:30 p.m. PST.

The decision to livestream the concert comes after realizing how many fans Miller had not only in the United States, but all over the world.
“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing lineup and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,” Miller’s mother Karen Meyers says. “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.”
