The Vans Warped Tour documentary No Room for Rock Stars will be released by Cinedigm in select theaters in an exclusive engagement on Thursday, March 1, 2012. Filmmaker Parris Patton's much-anticipated documentary chronicling the Vans Warped Tour, had its World Premiere at the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival this Sunday, Jan. 22.
With more than 300 hours of film shot during the 2010 tour, No Room for Rock Stars 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 Rock Stars is Cinema Vèritè story-telling at its finest. A historical retrospective or concert film this is not.

Never been to a Warped Tour? We've been to almost ALL of them!
Here's what you need to know: 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 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. Along the way, Warped has provided a launching pad for a dizzying array of talent, from Green Day and blink-182 to Ice-T, Eminem and No Doubt, along with perennial punk legends such as Pennywise, All, The Bouncing Souls and Bad Religion.
Following the one-night theatrical event, No Room For Rock Stars will be released on iTunes on April 2 and DVD on May 8.
