Sarah McLachlan and the 2010 Lilith Tour have just revealed the first set of artists confirmed for next summer’s tour. What was once a hope and a dream for many is now fully coming to fruition, with the announcement of city stops earlier this fall, and now a robust roster of musicians.

"The 2010 Lilith Tour isn’t just a celebration of women in music, but a celebration of diverse female voices across all genres,” says co-founder Terry McBride. “The original Lilith Fair broke down boundaries, and the new tour promises to do the same, with a mix of contemporary and classic, established and up-and-coming artists from the worlds of pop, rock, urban, country and more.”

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

There's a number of "wow" artists included who I never imagined to be a part of the festival. So jazzed about Chairlift, Mary J and Metric jumping on board, as well as lesser knowns Zee Avi and Vita Chambers. Who are you excited to see?
