The Lilith Fair was so-named by Sarah McLauchlan for its first tour in 1997. She started the tour because she'd gotten fed up with concert/radio promoters that wouldn't feature two female musicians in a row. She was through with their sexism, and in her own way was promoting the feminist revolution! So it fits that she chose the name "Lilith," which is the name of a woman from a medieval Jewish legend. Lilith is apparently Adam's first wife, but she was made from only earth (just like Adam). Instead of thinking of herself as part of Adam, she thought she was his equal. Well HAHA. That didn't work out so well. She got banished, and the legend goes on the same way as our well-learned Genesis story always goes-- God created Eve from one of Adam's ribs, and she acted as part of Adam, the other half that made him whole. Awww.

Anyway, to make a short story long, the Lilith Fair was named after Lilith, a female that symbolizes Feminist Power.
