"I can't reveal anything further now," Lilith Fair co-founder and Nettwerk CEO Terry McBride said in a statement, "but I can assure fans that we have some exciting announcements over the course of the following weeks, from confirmed artists to additional cities to innovative social initiatives. Lilith 2010 is very much upon us."
Lilith Fair's website underwent a complete redesign and was launched early Tuesday with the announcement. And yes, you can follow the fest on Twitter.
In 1997, Sarah McLachlan launched the all-female music festival, which became the top-grossing festival of that year and top-grossing female music festival of all time, featuring artists including Natalie Merchant, the Pretenders, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow and Missy Elliott, among many others.
When Spinner spoke to McLachlan last fall, she hinted at Lilith's possible return. "Never say never," she said. "For many years it was just flat-out 'Nope. No, can't even think about it.' But the longer time passes, it doesn't seem like an impossibility."
"I guess I was rather unprepared for the media onslaught and the sort of excitement that ensued from Lilith," she explained. "I had very simple goals. I wanted to put on a great musical show, and showcase all the amazing women that were coming up in music and not being represented in any other summer festivals. And certainly to have guys say, 'Oh, this isn't gonna work, putting 200 women on one bill,' fueled it, as well."
We betcha St. Vincent won't be on next year's bill.
