Rockers Yes are to host their own Yestival in New Jersey this summer (13).

The group's inaugural event will take place at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden on 3 August (13).

The band will perform their classic early 1970s albums The Yes Album and Close to the Edge in their entirety at the festival, which will also feature acclaimed Genesis tribute band The Musical Box, Renaissance featuring Anne Haslam, Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy and other acts to be confirmed.

Yes bassist Chris Squire tells Wenn, "This is a concept we've been trying to put into motion for some time, and only now have we been able to turn it into reality."

The band also has plans to stage a second Yestival in Pennsylvania, which Squire calls "a Yes stronghold since the '70s".
