Tickets for the festival go on sale 5 April at 10am CT, with pre-sale access for Citi cardholders. All proceeds will go towards the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a rehab centre Clapton founded in the Caribbean.

In addition to the performances, the festival will also include a Guitar Center Village where top guitar manufacturers will host interactive exhibits, and main stage artists will participate in master guitar clinics and solo performances.

    I love blues, but why not more rockers? Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Yngwie Malmsteen are just a few that would fit in perfectly
