This year, the festival, founded by the Clapton himself, back in 2004, and was held in 2007, 2010 and 2013, will feature a mind-blowing list of artists including Billy Gibbons, Tom Misch, James Bay, to name just a few. Adding to the lineup is Mayer, who will be performing a few songs with Clapton at the latter's set during the festival. The two performed together earlier this weekend at Clapton's Tokyo show, the first of his five-night residency in Japan.
It’s always great when the stars align and I get to catch up with @ericclapton. An exceedingly generous man. Watching him play is like getting picked up by the scruff of my neck like a kitten. I just love it. To do it in Tokyo makes it all the more special. Excited to be making an appearance at his #crossroadsfestival in September.
Check out their performance at Nippon Budokan last Saturday.
