Virgil Abloh Securities, a creative company founded by the late Virgil Abloh, has announced a one-day music festival honoring his legacy called Mirror Mirror. Travis Scott and Skepta will headline the event. Also performing will be Yves Tumor, Pedro, Venus X, Bambii, Rampa, Acyde and Benji B. Mirror Mirror will take place on December 3 at the FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (November 23), with net proceeds supporting the Virgil Abloh Foundation.
“Virgil had the ability to bring everyone together to create magic,” said Shannon Abloh, his wife and CEO and managing director of Virgil Abloh Securities. “With his close associates, we wanted to bring everyone together to celebrate Virgilio: his legacy, his passion and his concern for others. He believed that his real job was to advocate for others and we will continue his work by supporting youth in the arts with the launch of the Virgil Abloh Foundation in 2023.”
Abloh died in November 2021 after living privately with cancer for years. The influential fashion designer was also the artistic director of menswear for Louis Vuitton, founder of Off-White, and occasional DJ. In addition, Abloh directed music videos and designed album covers for Westside Gunn’s.

The casting of Travis Scott for Mirror Mirror is part of his slow return to the festival stage after the Astroworld tragedy. Early next year, Scott will also headline Rolling Loud California 2023 alongside Future and Playboi Carti.
