The original Lilith Fair ran from 1997-1999. With over 1.5 million fans in attendance and more than $10 million raised for national and local women's charities, it was one of the highest grossing touring festivals in the world. Founded by Grammy-award winning artist Sarah McLachlan, along with Dan Fraser, Marty Diamond and Terry McBride, Lilith Fair was a celebration of women in music, led by McLachlan and featuring artists like Sheryl Crow, Christina Aguilera, Erykah Badu, The Dixie Chicks, The Pretenders, Nelly Furtado, Queen Latifah, Indigo Girls, and Tegan and Sara. Nearly 11 years later, Lilith 2010 continues the tradition of celebrating women in music, breaking down boundaries by uniting iconic and up-and-coming female artists across all genres into one musical community of support and celebration. The 11-artist line-up per city will constantly rotate among more than 80 confirmed acts, including Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu, Emmylou Harris, Tegan & Sara, Loretta Lynn, Metric, Court Yard Hounds, Gossip and more. The philanthropic spirit of the original Lilith Fair remains intact, with $2 from every ticket sold going to charity: $1 to a local women's charity in each tour market, $1 to the Lilith i4c Campaign, a for-profit venture that will help fund Lilith's future non-profit initiatives. www.lilithfair.com.
