Frank Ocean has pulled out of his headlining spot for this Saturday’s FYF Fest in Los Angeles. According to a press release, Ocean “decided on his own terms to cancel his appearance.”

While fans are likely bummed to miss what has become an increasingly rare show from the performer, their tears should dry up quickly, as festival organizers have nabbed the mother of all fill-ins: Kanye West. How they pulled off such an epic last minute move is unknown, but it certainly does nothing to hurt their standing as the best bill of 2015.

Morrissey remains as Sunday evening’s headliner, and other performers include D’Angelo and the Vanguard, Bloc Party, The Jesus & Mary Chain, FKA Twigs, Run the Jewels, Savages, Spirtualized, Laura Marling, Mac DeMarco, and Death Grips. Deerhunter previously dropped out and were replaced by !!!. Below, find the complete lineup as it now stands with West commanding the top spot.
