Organizers have cancelled the first of two nights for Drake’s fourth annual OVO Fest in Toronto this weekend.

The Canadian Press says New Orleans singer-songwriter Frank Ocean — who was supposed to headline on Sunday — has pulled out because of a vocal cord injury.

British R&B singer James Blake will now perform a day later, joining Drake and other guests at Molson Amphitheatre on the holiday Monday.

Organizers said those with tickets for Sunday’s show will get refunds.
