Lilith Fair 2010 set for 4 Canadian cities

Lilith Fair, the all-female music festival founded by Canadian Sarah McLachlan, will tour to Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver in 2010.

No artists have been announced for the festival, which has been in hiatus since 1999.

But organizers have announced a tour of 14 cities including Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington and London.

Additional cities may be announced later, according to Lilith Fair co-founder and Nettwerk Records CEO Terry McBride.

Lilith Fair staged 104 shows from 1997 to 1999 that featured lineups of female artists or female-led bands including the Dixie Chicks, Liz Phair, Queen Latifah, Bonnie Raitt, Chantal Kreviazuk and Sheryl Crow.

McLachlan started the festival because of frustration over the reluctance of DJs to feature any two female artists in a row on radio.
