Paak, Action Bronson, Earl Sweatshirt, J.I.D, Domo Genesis, Njomza and more make the bill.
“The support we’ve experienced is evident in this amazing line-up and is a testament to Malcolm’s incredible life,” says Mac’s mother Karen Meyers, in a statement. “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.” Tickets for the event go on-sale this Friday (Oct. 5) via Ticketmaster.
