Aerosmith has signed on to headline LivingSocial's Backyard Festival this summer on New York City's Randall Island.

The one-day event, set for July 13, will showcase music by the rock icons, as well as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Yeasayer and others, as well as local foods, craft beer and wine tastings. An all-ages playground will also feature an array of games, rides and activities.

"This is the summer backyard party to end all backyard parties," LivingSocial CEO Tim O'Shaughnessy said in a press release. "When the weather gets hot, Americans have always gathered with friends in their yards to listen to great music, eat great food, share cold beers, and create lifelong memories."
