Unfortunately, the resurrection of the all-female Lilith Fair couldn't boast the same turnout and a handful of dates needed to be canceled, which, in turn, made a few artists drop out of the lineup altogether. The acts that remained included British pop star Kate Nash, whose experience didn't turn out the way she had hoped it would.
"I was really disappointed actually. It wasn't a great experience," she tells Spinner. "I don't think it was run very well. I was really hoping for a positive experience. I was so excited about it and thought it was going to be amazing and then when I got there, I felt really suppressed. I didn't fit in -- I had a different tone. I'm outspoken and opinionated, but you just have to go and do it and be yourself. I guess I made an imprint."
While the tour didn't go as smoothly as planned, founder Sarah McLachlan and her tour mates were still able to raise $200,000 to give to local women's charities and another $300,000 to be divvied up between a few charities associated with the I4C campaign. There's no word yet as to whether or not Lilith Fair will return in 2011.
