The Mirror Mirror Music Festival, curated by Benji B and produced by Virgil Abloh Securities, is set to go down on December 3 at the FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park in Miami. All profits will be donated to the Virgil Abloh Foundation, which launches next year.
“Virgil had the ability to bring everyone together to create magic,” Shannon Abloh, the fashion designer’s wife and CEO of Virgil Abloh Securities, said. “With his close collaborators, we wanted to bring everyone together to celebrate Virgil–his legacy, his passion, and his care for others. He believed his real work was championing others and we will continue his work supporting youth in the arts with the launch of the Virgil Abloh Foundation in 2023.”
Skepta and Benji B will also headline. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (November 23) at 10am ET here.
Virgil’s death at 41 sent waves through the Hip Hop and fashion communities when he passed in November 2021 after a private, two-year battle with a rare and aggressive form of cancer called cardiac angiosarcoma.
Amid a slew of social media posts in October, close friend and frequent collaborator Kanye West accused LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton CEO Bernard Arnault of being responsible for Virgil Abloh’s death.
“SPANK MY HAND WITH THE RULER(S) I’LL GO SIT IN THE ‘PRINCIPAL(S)’ OFFICE CAN’T WE TALK ABOUT MORE IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE HOW LATE THE SHOW WAS OR HOW BERNARD ARNAULT KILLED MY BEST FRIEND,” Ye wrote next to a photo of a statue bust. “EVERYONE’S GOT A RIGHT TO AN OPINION RIGHT THERE’S MINE.”
He also mentioned Arnault by name during his Yeezy Season 9 show the week prior, letting it be known that he saw the LVMH head as his competition.
“I want to make it clear to you guys: Bernard Arnault is my new Drake,” Ye said referencing his infamous rivalry with the OVO hitmaker.
As for Scott, the performance marks his slow-but-sure return to festival stages following November 2021’s AstroWorld tragedy that took the lives of ten concert-goers.
