It’s been 10 years since the estrogen fueled lineup of Lilith Fair took Canada and the US by storm, and since then, the summer festival scene has exploded. Despite the change in the landscape, Nettwerk’s Terry McBride and his signature artist Sarah McLachlan are looking to give it another go (whether we like it or not) with Lilith Fair 2010. It remains to be seen whether ticket buyers will flock back the current iteration of this female friendly festival, but here’s who they are betting on to lure them back in:

The first round of artists confirmed for the 2010 Lilith Tour are:

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.

    Everyone should definitely check out Vedera on this tour. Great pop songwriting that reminds me a lot of the Cranberries. There’s a bunch of their stuff up on their myspace page. Give em a listen!
