The Lilith Fair came and went in the late '90s, raising around $10 million for womens charities and performing for over a million people in its three short years of existence. Now it's coming back in a big way. No dates have been announced, but Los Angeles, of course, is among the many cities the tour will be hitting.

The event has been releasing the female-only artist line-up in chunks, with the latest release today. Of the performers announced so far, locals include A Fine Frenzy, Anya Marina (San Diego), Ceci Bastida, Jill Hennessy, Jesca Hoop (former resident, now resides in Manchester, England), Lissie, Lucy Schwartz, Molly Jenson (Orange County), Sara Bareilles, The Rescues and The Submarines.

Also, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae and Lilith Fair co-founder Sarah McLachian, among others who are not necessarily local, are headlining.

In 2008, the Hotel Cafe Tour also only featured female artists.
