According to the source, Chaka Kahn, Mavis Staples, Larry Graham, and the Bangles will perform, in addition to "loads of big-name friends."

However, as Radar reported, Prince's estate is a mess, as his lawyers and loved ones struggle to find a will and family members begin to fight over his $300 million fortune.

"No one is in charge right now, which makes planning anything difficult," the source adds.

The "Purple Rain" icon was discovered dead in the elevator of his Minnesota estate last week after canceled concerts and even an in-flight medical emergency. He was just 57.

With toxicology results pending, Prince was remembered in a memorial service at his Paisley Park compound over the weekend.
