Jay-Z will make his U.S. festival debut when he replaces the Beastie Boys at the All Points West Music&Arts Festival in New Jersey.

The Grammy winner stepped in after the Beastie Boys were forced to cancel their opening night appearance July 31. The trio scrapped their current schedule because member Adam Yauch must undergo surgery and treatment for a cancerous tumor in his salivary gland.

The three-day festival at Liberty State Park in Jersey City also features Tool, Coldplay and more than 65 artists.
