Publisert 04.11.2022 — TIFF

In 2022 Tromsø International film festival decided to focus more on music by showcasing some of the skilled artists in the region. And so, the pop rock band, Ringo Moon, was chosen to become the first ever TIFF band. This year we are pleased to announce that TIFF is continuing this focus on music and has chosen yet another exciting and local band to make the festival soundtrack.

A Million Pineapples are known for their energetic live shows, with captivating and playful songs.

The band has just gone through an exciting festival season, participating at festivals like Bukta Open Air Festival, Øya festival and by:larm. Now they are ready to enter year 2023 by creating the mood for Tromsø International Film Festival!

“We are really looking forward to it!”, says Mie Bergh from A Million Pineapples. “We already knew that TIFF is putting an emphasis on local bands, which we find super cool! So to be asked to be this year’s festival band is extra nice.”
