DALLAS, TX (CelebrityAccess) — Guitar legend Eric Clapton announced the Crossroads Guitar Festival will return for its fifth installment in 2019.
Set for September 20-21, the festival will take place at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas, the city that hosted the first edition of the festival.
The festival promises two nights of “performances and impromptu collaborations from the world’s most legendary guitar players” with a lineup that includes Clapton, Jeff Beck, Joe Walsh, Keb Mo, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmie Vaughn, Robert Cray, Vince Gill, and the Tedeschi Trucks Band among others.
In addition to the concerts, the festival will also feature a Guitar Center Festival Village which will be located on Victory Plaza adjacent to the arena. Some of the world’s best guitar and gear manufacturers, including Ernie Ball, Fender, Gibson, Martin, PRS, and more, will host interactive exhibits where guitar fans can plug in and play new products and classic favorites.
In addition, Guitar Center Festival Village Stage Presented by Ernie Ball will host master guitar clinics and solo performances by main stage artists, up-and-coming artists, and special guests. The Guitar Center Festival Village will be open from 12pm to 8pm each day and is free to all ticket holders.
All profits from the Festival will benefit The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons.
