Lilith Fair to return in 2010 -- are you feeling it?

According to a brief post on, Lilith Fair has awoken from its lengthy lady-slumber — the female-focused music festival traveled through North America from 1997-1999 — and will reemerge for a two-week jaunt sometime next year in Europe and the U.K.

The tour, which once featured a slew of XX-chromosomed all-stars, including co-founder Sarah McClachlan, the Indigo Girls, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow, Jewel, the Dixie Chicks, Erykah Badu, Jewel, Sinead O’Connor, Emmylou Harris and Missy Elliott, found considerable commercial success in its time. More than a decade later, it could probably still thrive with the same names (minus, perhaps, the odd Letters to Cleo-related switcheroo), though it’s unsure if those same women would agree to return.

Do you still believe in Lilith, Music Mixers? What kind of lineup would it take to get you strap on your “A Woman Needs a Man Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle”-stickered fannypack and help rebuild the fem-pire? Here’s a clip to jog your memory (fem-ory? NO MORE GYNO PUNS!):
