Lilith Fair returns in 2010


Fem rock fanatics of the world, brace yourselves. Sarah McLachlan and a traveling troupe of female artists will unite in the summer of 2010 for the rebirth of Lilith Fair. The late '90s girl power music fest boasted genre spanning acts such as Sheryl Crow, Lisa Loeb, Missy Elliot, Martina McBride and Tegan and Sara during its run from '97-'99.

Although it was announced months ago that Lilith will be back on in 2010, a list of the first cities that will be hit by the girl band whirlwind was just posted on the web yesterday. What's the first city, you ask? That would be Atlanta. Other than a list of cities, there are no other definite details concerning dates of the Fair's lineup.

The Fair strives to promote female artists while raising money to help other women. Lilith raises funds for various women's charities and reportedly earned more than $10 million during its three year run.

In light of the Fair's in progress resurrection, its are offering fans a free download of Sarah McLachlan and Emmylou Harris performing McLachlan's hit "Angel" at the '99 Lilith Fair.
