Aerosmith, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Yeasayer are set to perform at the first-ever LivingSocial Backyard Festival on Randall's Island in New York on July 13th. In addition to the live performances, the festival will feature food from New York restaurateur Danny Meyer's restaurants, as well as a beer garden with more than 150 craft beers.
The summer bash will also include a "Hangout Zone" with hammocks and bean bags, "Cool Down Zone" with misting machines and giant fans and backyard games such as cornhole and horseshoes.
It's the only scheduled New York appearance this summer for Aerosmith, whose Steven Tyler and Joe Perry were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame last night. More artists are expected to be announced.
