Put a fork in it, Lilith is done.
The female-fronted music festival rose like a phoenix last year after a long hiatus only to subsequently sink like a stone as poor ticket sales led to many cancellations.
Sarah McLachlan, who co-founded the original Lilith Fair multi-artist concert series as well as the rebirth, told Calgary’s Globe and Mail newspaper that, despite proclaiming last summer that Lilith would live on, it is over.
“It’s done,” McLachlan said “And that’s okay. It’s actually a really good thing."
McLachlan went on to say that when planning the revival, she and her partners didn’t take into account how much times had changed since the original Lilith Fair, which had a very-successful three-year run starting in 1997.
