What some of the artists are saying about Lilith Fair 2010:

Miranda Lambert:

“I am excited to be part of a tour that celebrates and acknowledges talented women from all genres of music, and am so proud to have the opportunity to join the prestigious line up of past female artists who have performed on Lilith Fair.”

Pop band Chairlift:

“It seemed to me that when the first Lilith Fair hit in the 90s, it brought back a kind of 70s feminist mentality. This time around in 2010, Lilith has that same 20-year evocative relation with the 90s. We’re all psyched to represent, if not as a “girl group” (which we don’t particularly consider ourselves, being two-thirds male), for the spirit of the playful and mysterious women of the new decade.”

Singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles:

“I was beyond thrilled to hear of Lilith’s return. I was never lucky enough to get to see one of the shows in the original incarnation, but I have been waiting for this for a long time. I love the philosophy behind this concert series, both celebrating women in music and also how music can help benefit the communities around them.  I almost can’t believe that I actually get a chance to be a part of this! Lilith 2010 here we come.”

Rock duo Tegan and Sara:

“Sara and I played one of the last Lilith Fair shows ever 10 years ago in Edmonton, AB. We only played one show and it was on the smallest stage, in the rain, to nearly no one. 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.”
