Dalane Blues Festival was established in 2003 with a vision to reach out to as many music enthusiasts as possible. The main theme for the festival musically is blues, but throughout the years we have had bands and solo artists that are of a different genre but always have some amount of blues influence.
We strive to reach out to as many people as possible in all age groups; a good example here is the Union Blues Cup. Local/regional bands and artists can audition to be in this competition and the winner is sent to the finals at the Notodden blues festival. The final winner there is rewarded with financed touring to norwegian blues clubs and creating a solid musical network to branch out in the music industry.
We also put a lot of focus on quality, not just quantity. We have high goals to make this festival a great experience for our audience as well as the musicians. Dalane Blues Festival started out small but has grown to be a well known and respected music event both in and out of the country, we get visitors from all over the world each year. Beth Hart, The Waterboys, Johnny Winter, Oli Brown and Andrew Strong are just a handfull of the many names we have had throughout the years. This festival wouldn't be where it is today if it wasn't for our fantasic volunteers, sponsors and of course our audience.
