Jay-Z has been lined up to replace the Beastie Boys at All Points West on July 31.

The Beastie Boys cancelled all tour plans and postponed the release of their upcoming album ‘Hot Sauce Committee’ after Adam Yauch was diagnosed with cancer of the preaortic gland and lymph node.

Yauch said that the condition was “treatable”, and that he would undergo treatment soon.

The slot will be Jay-Z’s first festival appearance in the US, having already performed at Glastonbury and Roskilde among others.

Tool will headline the New Jersey event on August 1 while Coldplay close things out on August 2.
