Lilith Fair 2010 gets Mary J Blige, Brandi Carlile, Metric and more and it’s coming to Seattle

December 10th, 2009 by travis hay

Remember Lilith Fair? It was a traveling girl-powered festival curated by Sarah McLachlan that had a respectable run in the 90s. It’s been a decade since the ladies of Lilith took over venues across the country so maybe you forgot about it.

The reason I ask is because next year Lilith Fair will be back and Seattle has been announced as one of its destinations and judging from the initial lineup you won’t want to miss Lilith 2010.

The lineup is a laundry list of just about every important and up-and-coming woman making music today. The lineup could change, or Lilith could have a Warped Tour type of set up where acts join and leave the tour throughout its run, so there’s no telling whether this exact group of women will play the Seattle date (which is TBA).Regardless of the Seattle lineup, in this age of destination festivals I am in full support of having more all-star touring festivals hit the road this summer.

So far the Lilith lineup includes the likes of Metric, Mary J. Blige, Tegan and Sara, Sheryl Crow, Janelle Monae, Ingrid Michaelson, Emmylou Harris, the Indigo Girls, Seattle’s own Brandi Carlile and more. Like I said, the date and full lineup for Seattle’s Lilith date is still TBA but that doesn’t mean you can’t be in awe over the initial listing of Lilith Fair artists below.

A Fine Frenzy, Ann Atomic, Ash Koley, Brandi Carlile, Butterfly Boucher, Chairlift, Chantal Kreviazuk, Colbie Caillat, Corinne Bailey Rae, Donna Delory, 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, Sugarland, Susan Justice, Tara MacLean, Tegan and Sara, Vedera, Vita Chambers, The Submarines, The Weepies, Ximena Sarinana, Zee Avi
