Rapper Wiley steps in for Frank Ocean at festival
Rapper Wiley has been brought in to replace Frank Ocean at V Festival after the R&B star scrapped his summer shows.
The singer left fans devastated after announcing he was pulling out of all gigs scheduled for the next few weeks, including several European festival dates and a supporting slot on Coldplay's tour of the continent.
Bosses at V Festival in Chelmsford at which Ocean was supposed to perform this weekend, have now asked Wiley to take his place.
A representative for the music event took to Twitter.com to announce the development, writing, "Replacing Frank Ocean on the Arena Stage will be the Godfather of Grime Wiley. Could this heatwave get any hotter?"
