RALEIGH, N.C. -

Working quickly to find a replacement for festival headliner Big Boi, Hopscotch organizers announced Tuesday that DJ A-Trak and Holy Ghost! will fill the gap left on City Plaza Sept. 6.

Last week, organizers announced that rapper Big Boi was forced to cancel his performance "due to circumstances beyond our control." He has since been rescheduled and will perform at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium on Sept. 21.

A-Trak and Holy Ghost! will join the previously scheduled Future Islands and Gross Ghost on the City Plaza stage on Friday, Sept. 6.

A-Trak is a world-renowned DJ who has toured with the likes of Kanye West, and collaborates with Armand Van Helden as Duck Sauce. Holy Ghost! is a electropop duo from Brooklyn who will make their first Triangle appearance at Hopscotch.

Holy Ghost! will take the stage at 8:20 p.m., while A-Trak is scheduled to perform at 9:40 p.m.

The first 1,000 tickets for Big Boi at Memorial Auditorium on Sept. 21 will be available to Hopscotch wristband buyers for free. The tickets will be available at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Raleigh when Hopscotch wristband distribution begins.

All remaining tickets will go on sale Aug. 13 at 10 a.m.

Anyone who wants a refund because of Big Boi's postponement can email ETIX at support@etix.com by Aug. 6 to request one.
