    Singer/songwriter Liz Phair is looking to create a new version of the now-defunct, all-female touring festival Lilith Fair.

    Phair was part of the Lilith Fair movement in the late '90s but did not take part in the 2010 revival of the summer event, which was a massive, poorly attended flop.

    Sarah McLachlan, who created the festival in 1996, said she would not attempt to resurrect the fair again.

    Phair told WENN, "I know they brought back Lilith Fair and it didn't do as well or get the press that the first one did. That was such a moment in time. Had they kept it up it could've become like a 'Chickapalooza,' maybe should've; that would've been nice. I think Sarah (McLachlan) was done; she was raising kids and tired and it's a big thing to close a show like that every night. I can't imagine the pressure, and she nailed it and she killed it every time."

    Phair continued, "I think there should be a festival for women every year and just keep it going. I thought about starting it and getting people like Sarah Silverman and bring in different talent, not just music. Where's the Chickapalooza? I'd love it. I do think seeing a lot of different female acts together is a nice bouquet. I think a female festival is just perfectly legitimate.”

    Would you attend a "Chickapalooza?"
