Eric Clapton is hosting his third Crossroads Guitar Festival on June 26 in Chicago, inviting many of the same stellar guests who appeared at the first two events, including B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, John Mayer, Vince Gill, Steve Winwood, Robert Cray and ZZ Top.


The event, benefiting Clapton’s Crossroads Centre in Antigua for people with chemical dependencies, also will feature Sheryl Crow, Brazilian jazz guitarist Joao Gilberto, James Burton and Albert Lee, among others.


The first Crossroads Festival in Dallas in 2004 and its successor three years later in Chicago were filmed and released on DVD. In addition to the main-stage performances, the festivals encompass music workshops, demonstrations and various forums for interaction among fans and participating musicians.


Tickets are $100 and go on sale Feb. 20 through Ticketmaster.
