A host of stars will take to the stage to honour the late rapper - who was found dead in his San Fernando Valley home last month following a suspected overdose at the age of 26 - with Travis Scott, John Mayer and Chance The Rapper set to pay their respects on the bill.

The special show will take place on October 31 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, and it will also mark the launch of the Mac Miller Circles Fund (MMCF).

His mother Karen Meyers said in a statement: "The support we've experienced is evident in this amazing lineup and is a testament to Malcolm's incredible life.

"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."

Also set to appear on the line-up are SZA, Ty Dolla $ign, Action Bronson, Anderson Park, Domo Genesis, Dylan Reynolds, Earl Sweatshirt, J.I.D, Miguel, Njomza, Schoolboy Q, Thundercat, Vince Staples with many more still to be announced.

Hip hop star Travis was amongst those to pay tribute to Mac following his tragic death, as he delivered a heartfelt freestyle during his performance at Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas.

He said: "Malcolm that's my boy, Mac Miller I love you, always be my boy. Mac Miller we f***ing love you, you the f***ing one."
