ABC News reports that the legendary pair of acts are among the headliners for the fest. Though the lineup is still being finalized, LivingSocial is also promising "bocce ball, slides, see-saws, photo booths, art and crafts, swing sets, Giant Twister and much more."

"This is the summer backyard party to end all backyard parties," boasted CEO Tim O'Shaughnessy, adding that "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.

LivingSocial's Backyard Festival will propel that beloved summer ritual to the next level with legendary bands, world-class cuisine, top-shelf wine and beer, and games for all ages."

The Backyard Festival is scheduled for July 13 at Randall's Island in New York City.
