R.I.P. Lilith Fair

Sad! But we suppose it had its time!

Sarah McLachlan announced today that after attempting to revive Lilith Fair last year to bad ticket sales, she will no longer be running the female-fronted music festival!

She explains:

"Bringing the same thing back last year really didn't make any sense, in retrospect, without due diligence being done on how women have changed. In 12 years, women have changed a lot. Their expectations have changed, the way they view the world has changed, and that was not taken into consideration, which I blame myself for."

Inneresting points!

However, fear not, female music lady fans, she DOES hope to update the venue sometime in the future by "carrying forth the ideas from Lilith and maybe doing something new and different."

Nice! We DO like the sound of that, and are looking forward to how this re-imagining will manifest itself!

Heading To Australia!

Lilith is going Down Under!

The 2010 Lilith Fair will continue in Australia this October as a Taste of Lilith with shows in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Sarah McLachlan, Dixie Chicks spin-off the Court Yard Hounds and Kate Miller-Heidke and the Verses will perform.

Ticket prices are still high though at $149 and $222 in Australia.

Pretty steep, Sarah! Especially considering that's why many people didn't show up to the concerts in the US!

Lilith Fair A Charity Success!

Well there's an upside!

Even though this summer's Lilith Fair had to cancel a lot of dates because of poor ticket sales, the tour raised over $500,000 for North American charity organizations!

Sarah McLachlan says:

"I have a moral and social responsibility as a human being to give back what I can. Lilith 2010 was an amazing experience for me on so many levels. It felt so great to be back out on the road and sharing the stage with so many talented women. For me, Lilith has always represented a sense of community, and that's the greatest thing I take away from these shows.

"To be able to create an environment where both established artists and up-and-comers can join together, learn from one another and feed off each other's energy is such a great gift."

Silver linings!

Sarah McLachlan Hopes For Lilith Fair Next Year!

Filed under: Music MinuteSarah McLachlan

Who knows? 2011 could be a much better year for them!

Even though the revival of Lilith Fair this year has been less than ideal, founder Sarah McLachlan is determined for it to work, and intends on doing it again in 2011!

She reveals:

“I should preface everything I say by saying I’m a live-in-the-moment kind of girl. We’re planning on doing it next year, talking about a five-year plan. Do any of us know where we’re going to be in 15 years? We’re all here right now, and that’s sort of where I’m at. We’re sort of trying to figure out what all the possibilities are this year. We came out loud and proud with a huge roster, with a lot of great artists and a lot of diversity. And came into a tricky time in touring.”

We're thrilled that you haven't let the tour's problems get you down, bb! We imagine re-starting something of this magnitude has its growing pains!

We'll keep our fingers crossed for next year! Keep your head up!
