Kanye West is replacing Frank Ocean as headliner of this year's 12th annual FYF Fest, which begins this Saturday (Aug. 22) in Los Angeles.

The fest, which is being held this Saturday and Sunday at LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park, said in a statement that Ocean "has decided on his own terms to cancel his appearance."

As we previously reported, the FYF Fest lineup consists of Frank Ocean, Morrissey, D'Angelo and the Vanguard, Run the Jewels, Solange, FKA twigs, Belle & Sebastian, Mac DeMarco, Purity Ring, Bloc Party, Chet Faker, Flume and more.

Two-day passes for this weekend's event are still available, as are a limited number of VIP passes. Details can be found here.

A rep for Frank Ocean did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
