The Lilith Fair Playlist

Lilith Fair was a female-centric music festival that was produced for three years running in the late 1990's (1997, 1998 and 1999). The festival was founded by musician Sarah McLachlan after she was insulted by a music industry that refused to give female artists the credit and respect they deserved.

Also referred to in some circles as Girlapalooza, Lesbopalooza and Breast-fest, Lilith Fair was named after Lilith, a mythological female demon, sometimes referred to as Adam's first wife.

The festival was a big deal at the time, and although the artists featured spanned many genres and styles, they were all bound by their common sisterhood.

This playlist features a double-cd set of songs by artists who were part of the Lilith Fair festival a decade ago.
