Sadly, money rules and most of our dreams walk when you realize how much it would be to go to as many music events we would like to.
Money and obstacles is one thing that Marcus Haney laughs at. Haney has allegedly snuck into over 50 music festivals since 2010 including some biggies such as Bonnaroo, Coachella, Glastonbury and according to Haney, even the Grammys.
In his full-length documentary, No Cameras Allowed, he documents the last four years in which he traveled across the United States sneaking into the aforementioned festivals. He reveals how he plots to get in and reveals what he does to get into the festivals which include making replica wristbands and sneaking in by security guards like “he owns the place.”
In a recent interview, Haney explained the premise of the documentary, “The trailer makes the film out to be about a guy sneaking into festivals, but it’s really a coming of age story set in a music world.”
“It’s a love letter written to these festivals, in a way. And it shows them in such a great light that my goal is that people will see my film and then go and experience live music on their own. there’s no way you can translate the live music experience onto film.”
With that, we will agree. Check out the trailer to No Cameras Allowed.
