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. 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, Bouncing Souls and Bad Religion.
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.
Accompanying the film will be a blazing Greatest Hits compilation of the Vans Warped Tour. The project will also have a significant library of bonus content, some of which will be featured on the No Room For Rockstars mini-site at vans.com/warped and vanswarpedtour.com.
From the team that brought you the highly acclaimed Dogtown and Z-Boys, No Room For Rockstars will resonate beyond tour and punk rock fans to anyone seeking out the true stories of rock and roll.
