London Is Getting Its Very Own Hollywood-Style Walk Of Fame

A Hollywood-style Walk of Fame is coming to north London.

Hitting the streets of Camden in early 2019, London’s official Walk of Fame will commemorate the world’s most extraordinary musicians. The walk is set to feature over 400 artists, spanning the entire length of pavement from Chalk Farm, all the way to Mornington Crescent. (Photo: Glen Scarborough)

Camden seems like the natural choice of location, given its rich musical history. The Walk of Fame will certainly celebrate the borough’s musical heritage, but it will also honour national and international icons, unsung heroes and artists of the year, who will be chosen by industry experts.

The first plaque, set within one square metre of granite, is expected to be laid in February 2019. The rest will follow over a course of 20 years. No news on names yet, but we can expect plenty of announcements next spring.

The Walk of Fame will also be accompanied by a swish new app that uses augmented reality to help you explore. Using the app, you can “watch” artists perform on the pavement and read/listen to stories about the places and faces that made music history. And, of course, if you aren’t able to get to Camden IRL, the app will allow you to take a mesmerising virtual trip to the rock ‘n’ roll capital.

You could argue that the last thing Camden needs is another tourist attraction, especially after the announcement that its getting a giant restaurant and shopping complex next year
