For 17 years, the Vans Warped Tour has been a punk rock juggernaut, a misfit circus crisscrossing North America every summer as a wandering minstrel show for youth culture. Embracing a powerful, unifying ethic created by its founder Kevin Lyman, the Vans Warped Tour has grown and prospered as the music industry itself imploded and continues to sift through the rubble in search of a new way forward. With more than 300 hours of film shot during the 2010 tour, No Room for Rockstars documents the true stories of modern era rock and roll from every possible angle. From the kids in the van playing parking lots to gain notice, to the veteran stage manager whose life was saved by the tour, to the musician who crosses over to mainstream success while on the road, No Room for Rockstars is cinema vérité story-telling at its finest. A historical retrospective or concert film this is not. No Room for Rockstars is meaningful insight into current state of rock and roll and the zeitgeist of youth culture.
We have a look at this very special film with an exclusive clip featuring the band Forever Came Calling. Check it out below.
