Aerosmith Announced as Headliners for NYC's Backyard Festival
By: AnnMarie Scaramuzzino

Gathering up your friends and family for some BBQ, drinks and great music in the backyard is somewhat of a summertime staple, and this year, you could take those activities to another level entirely.

The first ever Backyard Festival will take place Randall’s Island in NYC on July 13, and the event will feature Aerosmith as the headlining act, as well as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Yeasayer and others.

Organized by Living Social, the festival will feature over 150 craft beers and wines, family-friendly games and activities and food from Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events.

Aerosmith, who released their 15th studio album Music From Another Dimension last year, have several other tour dates lined up for this summer, including five shows in Japan in August.
