Hamburgers and hotdogs? Check. Beer? Check. Bug spray? Check. Those plastic-y red and white checkered tablecloths draped haphazardly over your picnic table? Check. Steven Tyler performing in your backyard? Eh, not so much.
You may think you have all the makings for an epic summer blowout, but we guarantee that LivingSocial's Backyard Festival has got you beat. This inaugural event will feature live music from none other than Aerosmith, plus a slew of culinary and alcoholic delights, and enough fun and games to make even the palest of friends enjoy their time in the sun. It's all going down July 13 on Randall's Island in New York City - and SeatGeek has got the scoop.
Normally, people pay an average of $189 to see Aerosmith, but at the Backyard Festival you can see them for just $89. And that's not all: this first-time fest will feature a giant Jenga, Twister, see-saws and slides. And, like any true outdoor gathering, there will be hula-hooping. By God, there will be hula-hooping. In addition to all the games and activities available throughout this self-described "All-American Summer Bash," the major draw is the music: besides headliners Aerosmith, you can also catch Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Yeasayer and more. For the drinkers in the house, there will be over 150 craft beers and wines available on-tap, and what goes better with alcohol than food? The folks over at Union Square Events will be catering, so get ready for region-inspired cuisine to coincide with the USA-themed party: think BBQ in Texas and drive-in burgers and shakes in California.
For just $89, you have access to:
- Music from Aerosmith, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Yeasayer & more
- Union Square Events catering, including El Verano Taqueria & Box Frites
- Over 150 craft beers and wines
- Photo booths, slides, see-saws & hula-hooping
So ditch your Citronella candle-laden patio set and your Aunt Linda's pasta salad that's been sitting in the sun for way too long. It's time for a real party, brought to you by LivingSocial.
