SUPERSONIC BLUES MACHINE
& special guests:

The Supersonic Blues Machine struck down as a bomb when they played at the Notodden Blues Festival in 2016. Today, the concert is referred to as a legendary performance and one of the Notodden Blues Festival's greatest musical project successes. Notodden Blues Festival and the Supersonic Blues Machine have always kept in touch, and there has been mutual agreement on following up the cooperation when the time felt right. And now is the time!

There is still talk on the town about Rival Sons' legendary concert at Notodden Blues Festival in 2014. The band struck down as a lightning from the sky and took the audience by storm with their energetic blues-inspired rock. Their live recorded videos from Notodden's Juke Joint Studio have also been a huge success for the band on YouTube. It is a pleasure that we can now announce that Rival Sons will return to Notodden in 2019.
