After 11 years, the all-female Lilith Fair tour – now simply known as Lilith – has announced its first eight dates and lineups of the summer.
Lilith co-founder Sarah McLachlan is the only performer who will appear at each of the tour's 36 shows. The other 10 acts on each bill will draw from a rotating pool of 80 performers that includes The Bangles, Beth Orton, Brandi Carlile, Cat Power, Corinne Bailey Rae, Emmylou Harris, Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige, Sia, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and many women more.
Lilith Fair first took place from 1997-99 and raised more than $10 million for various organizations. This summer Lilith focuses on The i4c Campaign, as in “I foresee a better tomorrow.” One dollar from each ticket will be devoted to raising awareness about Triple Bottom Line Companies. These companies are created by people with innovative ideas that can better our lives, such as a business that creates and sell solar lanterns or a company that collects and sells books online to fund global literacy initiatives.
