Advertising Poster, "Lilith Fair," 1998

Summary

Singer Sarah McLachlan was frustrated by conventional wisdom--concert promoters and radio stations had long refused to feature two female musicians in a row. McLachlan took action, organizing a concert tour and traveling music festival called Lilith Fair. Featuring only female artists and female-led bands--including well-known performers and emerging artists--the hugely successful Lilith Fair took place the summers of 1997 through 1999.
