A memorial service has been announced for late rapper Lil Peep.
The emo rapper (real name Gustav Åhr) passed away earlier this month (November 15) from a suspected drug overdose, although a definitive cause of death will not be determined until full toxicology results are published. He was 21.
A service “celebrating the fascinating colourful life” of Peep has been announced for Saturday (December 2), taking place at Allegria Hotel in Long Beach, New York. The news comes in an Instagram post from Lil Peep’s official account.
“Light refreshments will be served before the speakers begin at 2pm,” the announcement states. “This will be followed by a beach gathering in front of the hotel, and is open to all. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Oxfam.”

It was recently reported that police are investigating whether the powerful opioid drug fentanyl may have played a role in Peep’s death.
Meanwhile, Lil Peep’s management have released their first statement since the rapper’s death.
