James Marcus Haney spent over three years running, jumping, and faking his way into over 50 music festivals and events, including Bonnaroo, Coachella, Glastonbury, Austin City Limits, and even the Grammys. Haney, an aspiring filmmaker, turned his epic adventure into a documentary called, No Cameras Allowed, which premiered last month on MTV. Now, the full film is available to view online — watch below.
Haney describes the film as not just about a guy who sneaks into festivals, but 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.”
During his travels, Haney also befriended several bands, including Mumford and Sons, who provided music for the film’s soundtrack.
