Lilith Fair 2010: Will You Be Going?

lilithfair

The 2010 Lilith Fair has announced its performers for this year’s festival.  They are, in alphabetical order:

A Fine Frenzy, Ann Atomic, Ash Koley, Brandi Carlile, Butterfly Boucher, Chairlift, Chantal Kreviazuk, Colbie Caillat, Corinne Bailey Rae, Donna De Lory, Emmylou Harris, Erykah Badu, Grace Potter And The Nocturnals,
Ima, Indigo Girls, Ingrid Michaelson, Janelle Monae, Jennifer Knapp, Jill Hennessy, Jill Scott, Katzenjammer,
Ke$ha, Mary J. Blige, Meaghan Smith, Metric, Miranda Lambert, Nneka, Sara Bareilles, Sarah McLachlan,
Serena Ryder, Sheryl Crow, The Submarines, Sugarland, Tara MacLean, Tegan And Sara, Vedera, The Weepies, Vita Chambers, Ximena Sarinana and Zee Avi.

I’ve never been to a Lilith Fair.  Although there’s a lot of recording artists on this list that I’ve never heard of (Vita Chambers, Nnek and Meaghan Smith to name a few), the remainder is still pretty impressive to me.  And doesn’t it seem like Sarah McLachlan plays every damned year?  Rigged, I say, rigged. (I’m totally kidding on that before some of you jump up on those six-foot tall horses.)

The Lilith Fair was commenced in 1997 and celebrates women in music.  It ran for two years until circumstances disallowed it from continuing.  Approximately six months ago it was determined by founders and CEO’s that the fair would return to the spotlight, bringing artists of a huge caliber.  Although the fair only ran for three consecutive years, it gained a solid momentum in raising awareness for women’s rights — and raised a bit more than that.  In its three-year run, donations were said to exceed $10M for various charities in North America.

The Lilith Fair aptly got its name from the age-old Jewish legend that Lilith, not Eve, was Adam’s first wife, religiously speaking.

I didn’t attend previous Lilith Fairs but should one happen to pop up in my area this upcoming concert year, I think I’m going to have to find my way there and see what all the fuss is about.  They’ve got a pretty killer performance list this year and although it doesn’t compare to ’97, ’98 or ’99, it’s sure to hit some pretty standard notoriety regardless.

  2. I tend not to like women singers. I just prefer lower voices for my auditory pleasure, and find women more often do the ‘fit eighteen notes into every syllable’ thing instead of holding notes, which drives me nuts. So there are only six artists I recognise on that list, and I vehemently dislike five of them. I suspect this concert would be a living hell for me. Not to mention the pure estrogen in the air. I don’t enjoy being in all-women groups of more than a couple people.
