The Wire star was booked to perform on the first night of the Forbidden Fruit festival in Dublin, but he has withdrawn his name.

A spokesperson for the event says, "Idris had rescheduled filming commitments which unfortunately clashed with his set."

It's not clear which movie project has scuppered the actor/DJ's weekend plans.

Fat Boy Slim, Wu Tang Clan and Richie Hawton are among the headliners at the festival.
