Blues in Hell is a music festival organized annually in Stjørdal with concerts. at Hell and Hell station.

Hell is a quaint little village in Norway that´s the resting place of approx.1,666 souls. There are red-roofed houses, a post office, a grocery store, a rallycross track, even a church. It literally freezes over during the winter, which is yet another example of why its pun-friendly name draws tourists throughout the year.

Weirdly enough, hell means "luck" in Norwegian, but the locals play up their association with the netherworld. When you pull into the train station, there´s a sign that reads HELL - GODS EXPEDITION, and the town´s most famous native, Mona Grudt, who won the 1990 Miss Universe beauty pageant, proudly called herself "the beauty queen from Hell."

Trondheim Airport (Hell Airport), Værnes, is the closest neighbour, and one of Norway´s best salmon and sea trout rivers, Stjørdalselva, joins the fjord at Hell.
