Lilith Fair lasted three short years in the late 90’s on the festival circuit, but it’s being revived by Sarah McLachlan and Terry McBride with an ETA of this summer. While not all the cities or artists have been revealed (nor have any dates been listed as of yet) the lists seem filled out rather nicely. Sarah McLachlan will be joined on the tour with Fair vets Indigo Girls, Sheryl Crow, and Martina McBride, as well as a whole slew of acts, including Mary J. Blige, Gossip, Heart, The Bangles, The Go-Gos, and plenty of “indie darlings” like Tegan and Sara, A Fine Frenzy, Metric, and Cat Power.
In the three years it ran, Lilith Fair was one of the highest-grossing festivals and also raised over $10 million for women’s charities nationwide.
