This year’s event marked the fourth time that the Crossroads Guitar Festival has taken place since the first outing in 2004. The event draws top notch guitarists from around the world, and the proceeds from the performances go toward funding the Crossroads Centre, a treatment and education facility in Antigua that Clapton founded in 2008.
