Renowned Swedish band Hov1 with band members Ludwig Kronstrand, Noel Flike, Dante Lindhe, and Axel Liljefors, today have announced the release of their summer 2023 tour as a concert film titled Hov1 Forever, that gives a rare insight into the band's life, friendship and the strong relationship with the fans. The film, offering a great concert experience, was announced alongside the release of movie tickets. Hov1's sold-out summer tour spanned across 27 cities in Sweden and Norway and, for the third time, positioned them as Sweden's most streamed artist in 2023. With Hov1 Forever, SF Studios will now for the first time introduce concert films to the theatres, bringing audiences closer to their idols on the big screen. The film will be shown in Swedish cinemas from January 4-14, with SF Studios handling distribution across the Nordic region.

Hov1 Forever will be around when we are no longer here. So whatever happens, it makes us Hov1 forever. And we hope it can give our fans as much hope and love as they give us every day. Thank you to everyone who listens, cares, and sings with us at our concerts. This movie belongs to you and you more than us” says Hov1.

Hov1 Forever is a journey through the band’s 2023 summer tour across Sweden and Norway, capturing electrifying performances in 27 sold-out cities. The audience will witness Hov1’s dynamic stage presence, performing their biggest hits and engaging with fans. Additionally, the film offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into their off-stage discussions and music production, presenting a personal narrative that brings fans closer to the band than ever before, coupled with a great dose of musical nostalgia.

Since their breakthrough in 2017 with their self-titled debut album Hov1, the band has released three more chart-topping albums: Gudarna på Västerbron, Vindar på Mars, and Barn av vår tid. All have achieved No. 1 status, winning the hearts of millions of fans across the Nordics. Hov1’s achievements also include 7 Rockbjörnen awards, 6 P3 Gold awards, 3 Grammy nominations, and a record number of official number-one singles in Swedish music history.

"We are thrilled to bring one of our most popular bands to the cinema, offering fans a chance to relive this unforgettable concert experience or see it for the first time," says Iréne Lindblad, CEO of SF Studios.

Produced by Hov1 with Henrik Hanson, and distributed by SF Studios, Hov1 Forever will be available in Swedish cinemas from January 4-14, 2024. The tickets will be released on December 20 at 8 pm and will be sold here.
