Starting with 2010's Coachella, aspiring filmmaker James Marcus Haney crashed over fifty music festivals including Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Austin City Limits, and Ultra before faking his way into the Grammys. He continually documented his travels over the last five years, and MTV has now released Mr. Haney's documentary No Cameras Allowed.
The film feels like a modern retelling of Almost Famous, as Haney's festival crashing and wide-eyed optimism land him assignments from Rolling Stone that eventually end with the young photographer going on tour with Mumford & Sons. Haney said of the doc, "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."
