Mary J Blige, Jill Scott , Erykah Badu, Corinne Bailey Rae Join Incredible Lineup For 2010 Lillith Fair Tour


MTV Reports

After a decade-long hiatus, the female-centric Lilith Fair festival will storm back in summer 2010 with a lineup that features a mix of festival veterans and new stars, including founder Sarah McLachlan, Mary J. Blige, Ke$ha, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Colbie Caillat and Corinne Bailey Rae.

McLachlan and Badu, who were on the lineup the first time around, will be joined by fellow vets Emmylou Harris, the Indigo Girls and Tegan and Sara. Among the other acts slated to perform are country star Miranda Lambert, Janelle Monáe, Metric, A Fine Frenzy, Chairlift, Jill Scott, Sugarland, Brandi Carlile, Butterfly Boucher, Ingrid Michaelson, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Katzenjammer, the Submarines, Tara MacLean, Sara Bareilles, Chantal Kreviazuk, Serena Ryder, Susan Justice, Ima, Donna Delory, Ash Koley, Ann Atomic, Jennifer Knapp, Jill Hennesy, Meghan Smith, Vedera, Vita Chambers, Nneka, Ximena Sarinana, Zee Avi and the Weepies.

Badu, who toured with Lilith in 1998, said in a press release announcing the roster that she was psyched to have another go-round. "Magic happens when you bring this many artistic women together," she said. "I'll never forget the frequency and energy that I felt that first time I performed at Lilith. Between the sistas on stage and those in the audience, it was powerful!"

Tegan of Tegan and Sara recalled playing the smallest side stage on one of the last Lilith Fair shows more than 10 years ago in Edmonton, Alberta, and how despite challenging conditions, the gig was a formative experience. "We only played one show, and it was on the smallest stage, in the rain, to nearly no one," she said. "And yet, for the past 10 years, it continues to come up in almost every interview and is something we honestly look back on as a very important event in our career. The impact of Lilith Fair was felt all over the world, and its significance still resonates with women and the music industry itself 10 years later. We are proud to be a part of it again and are truly excited that Lilith is back."

Tour co-founder Terry McBride — who also manages or releases albums by a number of the acts on the lineup through his Nettwerk label — added: "The 2010 Lilith Tour isn't just a celebration of women in music, but a celebration of diverse female voices across all genres. The original Lilith Fair broke down boundaries, and the new tour promises to do the same, with a mix of contemporary and classic, established and up-and-coming artists from the worlds of pop, rock, urban, country and more."

From 1997 to 1999, Lilith Fair toured around the world with a lineup of some of the biggest female and woman-fronted acts of the day, including Christina Aguilera, the Dixie Chicks, Missy Elliot, Tracy Chapman, Fiona Apple, Nelly Furtado, Beth Orton, Sinead O'Connor, Bonnie Raitt, Lauryn Hill, Liz Phair, Mya, Martina McBride, Jewel, Dido, Queen Latifah and the Pretenders.

Dates and additional artists for the 2010 Lilith Fair will be announced in the coming months.
