Michael Jackson will finally be laid to rest on August 29, the date he would have celebrated his 51st birthday, his father Joe Jackson told the New York Daily.

The burial is set for 10am at the Los Angeles' Forest Lawn Cemetery more than two months after the King of Pop's death.

The Jacksons are all expected to attend as well as other celebrities, the names of which will still be announced.

A public memorial for the singer was held in July, but there was never an official confirmation that the Thriller singer was buried after the event.

Jackson died on June 25 from cardiac arrest. The reasons behind his arrest are still being investigated.
