There is one less act to this weekend's Jay-Z curated festival.

Chris Cornell, known for being the lead vocalists of Soundgarden and Audioslave, will no longer be a part of the 'Made in America' event Labor Day weekend at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

"Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict Chris Cornell is unable to perform at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia on September 2 as previously planned. Apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment. - Team CC," was posted on his Facebook page Tuesday night.

A tweet at 2:13 a.m. appeared to shed more light on Cornell's scheduling conflict.

He tweeted, "Proud to support @BarackObama again in 2012. I'll be opening for him in Des Moines on Sat, Sept 1follow @OFA_IA for details. #fourmoreyears"

Cornell's name has been taken off the official list of acts performing at the Philly event.

On a final note, Cornell also formed the band Temple of the Dog. Eddie Vender, the lead vocalist for the band Pearl Jam, was also a member. Pearl Jam will headline Day 2 of the 'Made in America' festival.
