First artist release for the anniversary festival in 2023
The Notodden Blues Festival celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2023. Today, the first artists for the anniversary festival is released. Beth Hart, Bernhoft, Vanessa Collier, Hellbillies, KnockOut Greg & the Scandinavian Blue Flames, Damer i Blues, Notodden Blues Band, Terry Lehns and Dr. Bekken & Richard Gjems are all ready for Notodden August 3rd to 6th 2023. The Christmas sale at discounted earlybird tickets also starts today.
“This is a release with well-known and beloved artists who are firmly rooted in our festival history at both international, national and local level, as well as the audience getting to experience singer, saxophonist and bandleader Vanessa Collier in Norway for the first time,” says festival director Jostein Forsberg. There was a magical atmosphere when Notodden Blues Festival was back in full size last summer. The audience and artists enjoyed themselves in a festival that everyone thought was reminiscent of festivals of the past. There was street blues, backyard blues, small clubs, youth scenes, blues cruises, big concerts, free festival breakfast and a festival square that simply boiled with atmosphere, people, food and music.
Next summer, Notodden Blues Festival invites you to a big 35th anniversary the first weekend of August. Notodden Blues Festival is now launching the first artists for the anniversary festival, and is at the same time opening the traditional Christmas offer on tickets.
