Eric Clapton’s third “Crossroads Guitar Festival” took place at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois on 26 June 2010. Tickets were put on sale to the general public on 20 February 2010. Funds generated by the event served as an additional endowment to the Crossroads Foundation. The foundation funds Crossroads Centre at Antigua, a treatment and educational facility for chemically dependent persons, founded by Eric Clapton in 1997. Since its inception in 2004, Eric’s vision for the Crossroads Guitar Festival was to create an event where his friends and contemporaries can have fun and jam together for the benefit of a good cause.
Eric announced the festival on 10 February 2010 along with the initial lineup. Added after the press release was issued were Jonny Lang (announced 13 February), Stefan Grossman (announced 21 February) and Johnny Winter (announced in May).
