One of this summer’s biggest shows at The Gorge is now scheduled to begin an hour earlier than previously announced.
The Lilith Fair will start at 3:35 p.m. Saturday, according to a news release sent out Thursday afternoon.
A third stage - called the Borders Stage - also has been added to the festival.
The Lilith Fair features some of the nation’s top female musicians - Jewel, Suzanne Vega and Tracy Chapman among them.
Singer Sarah McLachlan created the event after she noticed that multi-artist concerts such as Lollapalooza often included few female acts.
The Gorge showing of Lilith Fair will be the first in a 35-city tour across the United States and Canada. The show already has sold out its 20,000 tickets.
McLachlan headlines the festival Saturday starting at about 10 p.m. However, the songstress known for hits such as “Possession” and “Good Enough” also will play a special 3:35 p.m. acoustic set on the Borders Stage.
Gates open at 3 p.m.
