Sarah McLachlan, pictured here at the Grammy Awards in 2004, launched the first Lilith Fair in 1997. The all-female music festival Lilith Fair is returning after a 10-year absence, along with co-founder Sarah McLachlan.

Nettwerk Music Group, which helped organize the festival from 1997 to 1999, announced the festival will be returning the summer of 2010.

Nettwerk's Rich Adams confirmed McLachlan — who is now writing her first album of new material since 2003's Afterglow — will be involved but didn't specify whether she would perform.

Lilith Fair staged 104 shows from 1997 to 1999 that featured lineups of female artists or female-led bands including the Dixie Chicks, Liz Phair, Queen Latifah, Bonnie Raitt, Chantal Kreviazuk and Sheryl Crow. The concerts grossed more than $52 million US, most of it going to women's charities.

Nettwerk's CEO Terry McBride wrote on his Twitter account that "Lilith fair will look at doing two weeks in the U.K./Europe in 2010."

McBride did not say who would be in the lineup.

Vancouver-based Nettwerk manages McLachlan as well as the Barenaked Ladies, Billy Talent and Martha Wainwright.
