Hip-hop icon Nas will replace Mac Miller on the lineup of this year's Ubahn Fest, scheduled Oct. 21-22 at the underground Metro Transit Center, organizers announced Tuesday.

Miller, one of the headliners of the hip-hop, rock and EDM (electronic dance music) festival, had to cancel his performance due to a scheduling conflict, organizers said.

Other headliners include mashup master DJ Girl Talk and hip-hop duo Atmosphere.  

Ubahn Fest will feature local and regional acts on two stages at the transit center underneath Second Street. The lineup also will include Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly, Jon Bellion, Prof, Mod Sun and Murs. Organizers will announce more performers at a later date.

Performances will run 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. both nights. Advance tickets, $60 for two-day passes and $150 for two-day VIP passes, are on sale now at all Ticketmaster locations, and by phone at 800-745-3000. Single-day tickets will go on sale Sept. 8.

The AGAR agency, music promoter Self Diploma and Nederlander Entertainment have teamed up to present this year's edition of the festival. The name pays homage to Cincinnati’s rich German heritage, as it is the name of underground transit in German.
