Marcus Haney Crashes 50+ Festivals, Turns Experience Into Documentary

Marcus Haney has been to every major festival over the past four years. Coachella, Glastonbury, Bonnaroo: you name it, he’s been there. The key difference between him and thousands of other festivalgoers? He hasn’t paid a cent to go to any of those festivals.

Despite his delinquency, Haney has made himself into a fixture at major festivals, getting his way backstage and hobnobbing with the likes of Mumford & Sons. And now, Haney is chronicling his experiences in a full-length documentary, No Cameras Allowed. You can watch a trailer for the film below.

In an interview with Noisey, Haney talked about the impetus behind his festival-hopping, which began in 2010 when he and a friend snuck into Coachella. “Coachella bit me-I had such an amazing time,” he said. From there, it was on to several other festivals, as well as a pit stop at the Grammy Awards. “It was tough,” Haney said about sneaking into the awards show. “It take s a lot of watching for the right opportunity to get past security, past scanners, past metal detectors and all the way down to the nominees floor.”

Haney hopes to have No Cameras Allowed released in theaters “soon.” However, the various legal problems associated with the film’s production may make that a more complicated endeavor than one would expect.
