Lots of people are griping about the Lilith Fair lineup for Target Center on Sunday. Here’s your chance to build a better Lilith.
More than 100 artists agreed to play some dates on the traveling female festival this year. There are 33 candidates for five slots on the main stage (founder Sarah McLachlan is grandmothered in as headliner) and 80 performers for four spots on the second stage.
After studying the list of eligibles, here is my fantasy lineup, which is heavy on big voices and/or high energy needed for an eight-hour marathon capped by the luxuriously mellow McLachlan:
Main stage: Gossip, Metric, Brandi Carlile, Mary J. Blige, Miranda Lambert, Sarah McLachlan.
Second stage: Daniella Cotton, Ke$ha, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Janelle Monáe.
