Every summer 600,000 music fans attend the 52-day/43-city Vans Warped Tour. NO ROOM FOR ROCKSTARS is the behind-the-scenes look into the music, bands, and fans who make up rock's most diverse tour. Directed by Parris Patton, the film follows veteran bands like Flogging Molly and Pennywise, newcomers like Suicide Silence and Never Shout Never, and Mark Ronson, whose meteoric rise to the top of the charts is tracked throughout the documentary. From the bands being chauffeured to the Promised Land, to the bands living out of their vans just hoping for a chance to be heard, every story on the spectrum of rock can be seen here. At times NO ROOM FOR ROCKSTARS is an honest look at life on the road; at other times it's an intimate portrait into the rock star's search for peace and quiet after thousands of adoring fans rock out to their anthems. Offering an in-depth look into the world of touring, the film is the backstage pass every music fan has ever dreamed of. – T.W.
