Crossroads Guitar Festival 2004

On June 4th, music fans and guitar enthusiasts from around the world will descend on Dallas, Texas for a unique, one-time event hosted by Eric Clapton. SBC in association with SIRIUS Satellite Radio and Guitar Center present The Crossroads Guitar Festival, a revolutionary attempt to create a bridge between fans and musicians. For three days, attendees will be offered once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to be in intimate settings, as masters of the craft give fans the ultimate look into their art. Artists will be offering a variety of Guitar Clinics. There will be live performances on three stages, and an All Star Blues Jam. SIRIUS Satellite Radio will host one of these stages and will broadcast from the festival.

The entire weekend will feature the Guitar Center Village, including the Hard Rock Cafe's "50 years of American Rock and Roll" display, Jimi Hendrix display, interactive booths from leading guitar manufacturers, Vintage Showcase "buy-sell-trade", and a display of guitars donated from Eric Clapton and friends personal collections for the forthcoming June 24 Christie?s auction with proceeds benefiting the Crossroads Centre, on the grounds of Fair Park. The Guitar Center Village is coordinated by Guitar Center, the national retailer of musical instruments. The Festival will culminate at high-noon in the Cotton Bowl on June 6th, for an 11 hour concert including The Robert Cray Band, James Taylor, Bo Diddley, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton and many more...

This one-time only Festival, featuring the biggest names in guitar music, and created for music enthusiasts around the globe, is being held to raise funds for the Crossroads Centre at Antigua, the treatment and education center founded by Eric Clapton in 1997. Fundraising will culminate with an auction of Clapton's legendary guitars, to be held on June 24th, to benefit the Crossroads Centre.

Im very excited!

We were able to get tickets, thanks to a good friend of mine :bow:.

She ended up taking off work, driving to another town, just to track us down something other than standing room only.

NOW, Thats a Friend!
