(BBC) The family of punk impresario Malcolm McLaren have asked mourners to observe a "minute of mayhem" ahead of his funeral on Thursday.
McLaren's son, Joseph Corre, said fans should crank up their stereos with raucous music at midday on 22 April "in celebration of Malcolm's life".
"Put on your favourite records and let it RIP!" he added.
The funeral is expected to take place in Highgate Cemetery after a procession through London.
The cortege will be led through the streets of Camden, including Camden High Street and Chalk Farm Road.
Fans are being encouraged to pay their respects along the route, but McLaren's family have asked for privacy at the cemetery.
The music mogul died from mesothelioma, a rare cancer which is most commonly associated with exposure to asbestos, in a Swiss clinic earlier this month.
He was renowned for managing punk provocateurs The Sex Pistols, as well as his own musical projects in the 1980s.
Corre, whose mother is fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, announced the funeral plans on his charity website, Humanade.
McLaren's family have asked that donations be made to the charity, which fights human rights abuses, in place of floral tributes.
