Malcolm McLaren, the architect of punk and a potent figure in cultural life for the best part of four decades, will is to be buried.
McLaren found infamy as the man who brought the Sex Pistols to the world but also shaped fashion, had chart hits in his own right and briefly dabbled with politics.
He died at the age of 64 in a Swiss hospital after losing a battle with cancer earlier this month.
Friends from the world of fashion and music are among those expected to attend a London service.
And fans have been invited to line the route for his funeral cortege which will wind through the streets of north London, including Camden High Street and Chalk Farm Road.
The family of McLaren are encouraging people around the UK to play loud music - a "minute of mayhem" - at midday to remember his spirit.
His son Joseph Corre announced details of the unusual celebration earlier this week through his charity website.
"In celebration of Malcolm's life we are asking people to observe a Minute of Mayhem at midday on 22nd April. Put on your favourite records and let it RIP!" the site advised.
McLaren also managed the career of the New York Dolls and Bow Wow Wow, as well as briefly standing in the race to be Mayor of London. He had chart hits with singles such as Buffalo Gals, as well as being a broadcaster and cultural commentator.
He will be laid to rest in Highgate Cemetery, the venue for an infamous scene in the Sex Pistols' movie The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle in which McLaren performed the Max Bygraves song You Need Hands.
