Wiley has been confirmed as the replacement for Frank Ocean at this weekend's V Festival.

Ocean cancelled all his forthcoming European festival appearances over the weekend, including spots at V, Bestival and Pukkelpop. He has also pulled out of his opening slot on Coldplay's European tour.

V Festival confirmed last night (August 13) that Wiley would be stepping in and that he would be performing alongside Skepta and JME.

Confirming the news on Twitter, they wrote: "Replacing Frank Ocean on the Arena Stage will be the Godfather of Grime Wiley. Could this heatwave get any hotter?" Wiley himself then confirmed his special guests, writing: "Catch me and my brothers JME & Skepta at V Festival."

The festival takes place at Hylands Park, Essex and Weston Park, Staffordshire over the weekend of August 18-19. The Stone Roses and The Killers are confirmed to headline with support from Snow Patrol and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
