Of course Notodden has its own Blues Walk of Fame!

Right by the square at Notodden you will find the "Notodden Blues Walk of Fame". Since 2012, blues artists who have visited the Notodden Blues Festival have been honored by placing stars with engraved names of artists and bands that have participated in the festival. In addition, there is a special star that was laid down in 2013 dedicated to the people of Notodden, who volunteer their time and host thousands of festival participants every year.

Those who have been honored in this way include:

  • BB King
  • Kåre Virud
  • ZZ Top
  • The Fabulous Thunderbirds
  • Charlie Musselwhite
  • Willie "Pinetop" Perkins
  • Steven Van Zandt
  • Coco Taylor
  • Johnny Winter
  • Knut Reiersrud
  • Kristin Berglund
  • Reidar Larsen
  • City of Clarksdale
  • Morten Omlid
  • Rita Engedalen


New stars are laid down during the Notodden Blues Festival every year.
