Lilith Fair 2010 Lineup Announced: Will You Pay To Hear Them Roar?


The lineup has been announced for Lilith Fair 2010 and it ain’t half bad. As you may or may not remember, Sarah McLachlan and her tribe of she-women took the festival circuit by storm during the summers of 1997 to 1999. Back when bare midriffs and dancing computer babies were everywhere you looked, guitar-strumming ladies serenaded their fans near and far. It was good ol’ earthy, crunchy girl-power that featured artists such as Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Fiona Apple, Erykah Badu, Missy Elliott and the Dixie Chicks. The event made music history, empowering women who were trying to succeed in a male-dominated industry.

Despite being received with critical acclaim, Lilith Fair did have its detractors. Some called it too touchy feely, too white, too tame. Now, ten years after McLachlan wrapped the tour’s original three-year stint, the ladies of Lilith are back, with a 2010 tour in the works. While there is still a healthy dose of peasant skirts in the mix, it seems that the organizers have diversified their tastes. Check out the line-up (so far), along with videos for the ten acts we’re most excited about, after the jump.
