Delft Music Tour – Walk of Fame, is a free interactive musical tour along places in the center of Delft where musicians and composers were born, where they resided and lived, where they performed with their bands or orchestra or where they wrote their biggest hits.
The tour is a private initiative, subsidized by the Municipality of Delft and by private and/or corporate sponsors.
The musicians, composers, bands, music groups or musical initiatives are honored on the Delft Music Tour – Walk of Fame tile (20×20 cm) with music keys in the corners + the name of the artist, the band or the music group or music initiative + a QR code.
By using the website or a printed map, residents and visitors can walk (part of) the route and stop at the indicated spot. By scanning the QR code, information about the artist is obtained via www.delftmusictour.nl, including sound clips and YouTube videos.
The criteria of the editors (the initiators and compilers) for the placement of the tiles and/or naming on this website are as follows:
The musician, composer, music group or musical initiative is or was associated with the city of Delft; or they live there or have lived there; they work there or have worked there.
The musician, composer, or music group has published music (sheet music, recordings, broadcasts, recordings, etc.) and achieved a certain level of fame by doing so.
The interactive musical tour takes you through the city center. The placement of the tile has a link to the location where musicians and composers were born, where they resided and lived, where they performed with their bands or orchestra or where they wrote their biggest hits.
The editors are open to the suggestion of names of artists and will test whether or not these suggestions meet the criteria. Delft Music Tour can – in agreement with the municipality – decide to extend or change the tour by adding or removing tiles.
There is a possibility that notable people have, or have had, a link to Delft at a location outside the city center. The editors aim to compile a list of artists who meet a certain number of criteria without featuring on the route.
The editors have made every effort to collect reliable information through named sources about the people, companies and initiatives mentioned on the tiles and on this website. The compilers are open to substantiated correction proposals.
Although the editors have taken the utmost care in compiling the route and content of this website, no rights can be derived from it.
Anyone who objects to naming or publication for reasons of their own can contact the editors via email@example.com.
