Event organizer Smash Japan announced today that Keigo Oyamada will not be performing at this year’s edition of Fuji Rock Festival, one of the largest annual musical events in Japan.

Oyamada was originally scheduled to perform on Aug. 20 as part of the band Metafive, and on Aug. 21 as Cornelius — his solo alias. The latter act was to come before headliner King Gnu on Fuji Rock’s main Green Stage on the Saturday of the event. After having been postponed last year, this year’s lineup features only domestic acts due to Japan’s borders being largely closed to international travel.
