Ed Sheeran replaces Bieber at Birmingham's Fusion Festival.

Ed Sheeran has stepped in to replace Justin Bieber at Birmingham's Fusion Festival, after the Canadian pop star pulled out earlier this week, due to an "unforseen issue".

The "Lego House" singer will headline the first of three nights later this month and it will be the final chance for UK fans to see him live for a while. He tweeted "I know I said Wembley was my last UK show of this tour but my mate had a cancellation on his festival so I'm filling in last minute. It's called Fusion fest, it's in Birmingham, and it's on the 28th of August, this is the last booked UK show of the X tour. No more after".

Ed will take to the stage after artists including Shift K3y, Tinie Temaph, Rixton, DJ Fresh and Fuse ODG have performed.  Other artists performing over the weekend include Rudimental, Sigma, McBusted, Clean Bandit and Labrinth.

Tickets are available now via thefusionfestival.co.uk or you could try and win them in our exclusive competition, here.
