On June 26, 2010, at Toyota Park in Chicago, Illinois, guitar god Eric Clapton will gather over 20 of the world's greatest guitarists onto one stage for an incredible full day of music to benefit the Crossroads Centre in Antigua.
This year's roster of artists spans old and new, from The Allman Brothers Band to B.B. King to John Mayer (anticipated guest list below). The audience can expect unrivaled entertainment, brilliant guitar work, surprise guests, and impromptu jams that are the hallmarks of these performers.
"The Crossroads Festival is the realization of a dream for me, to gather a group of amazingly talented musicians to perform on one stage," said Clapton. "The Crossroads performers are all musicians I admire and respect."
