A Tribe Called Quest performs onstage during The 59th Grammy Awards at Staples Center on Feb. 12, 2017 in Los Angeles.  

Although Q-Tip has teased the possibility of another “incarnation” of A Tribe Called Quest, it’s hard to imagine how the group could go on without Phife Dawg. The group has also said that their recent shows in support of last year’s We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service would be their last.

Well, now it’s official: ATCQ told the crowd at the UK’s Bestival Saturday night (Sept. 9) that it would be their last show ever. “A Tribe Called Quest, we suffered a blow,” Q-Tip said midway through the performance. “We lost our boy Phife Dawg. This is gonna be our last show as A Tribe Called Quest, ever.”

Watch some footage from the performance below.
