Eric Clapton has announced details for the 2019 edition of the Crossroads Guitar Festival, a benefit event in support of The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by the guitarist for chemically-dependent persons.

Launched in 2004, the 2019 edition will deliver the fifth installment in the series following events in 2007, 2010 and 2013.
