Eric Clapton announces 2023 Crossroads Guitar Festival

Eric Clapton has announced details for the 7th installment of the Crossroads Guitar Festival.

The event - which has become legendary in its own right for hosting performances and impromptu collaborations from the world’s most renowned guitar players – will take place over two nights on September 23 and 24 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, CA.

The seventh installment in the festival series will feature an extensive array of artists, including Sheryl Crow, ZZ Top, Jimmie Vaughan, Robbie Robertson, Santana, Los Lobos, the John Mayer Trio and more.

Tickets to the 2023 Crossroads Guitar festival will go on sale Friday, April 21 at 10:00 a.m. local via Ticketmaster; please note that each day will be sold as its own ticket and there will not be 2-day passes.

All profits from the Festival will benefit The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons; for more information visit crossroadsantigua.org.

In addition to the concerts, the event will feature the return of the Guitar Center Festival Village, as well as the unveiling of the 25th Anniversary Crossroads Guitar Collection, and a post-event online auction.

The Crossroads event will take place shortly after the completion of Clapton’s fall series of North American concerts; ahead of which the guitarist will release a limited-edition box set, “The Definitive 24 Nights” – featuring recordings from his 1990-91 Royal Albert Hall residencies – on June 23.
