Lilith 2010 has partnered with OurStage.com to run the “Lilith Local Talent Search,” dedicated to finding “the next best emerging female musicians across North America.”
The online contest schematics should be familiar by now. A winner will be chosen in each city the tour visits where they will perform a set on the Village Stage with other emerging artists. Lilith organizers point out that same stage once hosted the likes of Christina Aguilera, Nelly Furtado and Tegan and Sara, so you just never know which future stars you might bump elbows with.
“We are really excited to be partnering with OurStage.com,” Lilith co-founder Terry McBride said. “It was extremely important to us to choose a partner that was artist friendly, had a strong platform for discovering regional talent, and had the ability to enable the fans to sort through the best music in a scalable and fair manner. Together, we provide an exceptional platform for discovering and promoting the best emerging female artists.”
So far Lilith is planning on playing 17 cities in the U.S. and Canada – Atlanta, Boston, Calgary, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, Portland (Oregon), Seattle, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver and Washington, D.C.
Lilith promises to announce more details about the festival as well as the talent contest. To stay connected, click here for the Lilith Fair Web site, here for the tour’s Twitter page and here for OurStage.com.
