JERSEY CITY, N.J.— 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.
