“Rock Camp, The Movie” will tell the story of the longstanding Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, which has brought fans together with their favorite rock stars since 1996

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp has been going strong since 1996, offering an interactive musical experience that brings together legendary musicians with budding players. Now, the camp is the focus of a new documentary, which looks at how the event has enabled fans to jam with some of the biggest names in rock and metal music, including Alice Cooper, Roger Daltrey, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS, Joe Perry of Aerosmith and more.

“Rock Camp, The Movie,” tells the story of how music producer David Fishof started Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy camp years ago and crafted it into a full-fledged enterprise. The storyline also follows four campers and their families as they experience the camp.

“Get a backstage pass into the inspiration behind Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, follow four campers through their journey to shred with their heroes and see how they overcome their fears and transform their lives,” reads the show’s official description. “Rock stars remember their humble beginnings and reconnect with their love of music.”

The documentary features appearances from Daltrey, Cooper, Stanley, Simmons and Perry, as well as Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, Sammy Hagar, Slash of Guns N’ Roses, Jeff Beck, Nancy Wilson of Heart and Judas Priest, among others. Doug Blush directed and produced “Rock Camp, The Movie,” who worked on the award-winning “20 Feet from Stardom” documentary, chronicling the lives of background singers.

The movie is being screened in some unique ways, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and restrictions. To watch, movie-goers will be able to purchase a ticket at select movie theater websites starting Friday (Jan. 15) and partake in a “virtual cinema” experience, in which they’ll watch the show on that movie theater’s website. On Jan. 22, the show will be screened in a handful of actual theaters. On Feb. 16, “Rock Camp, The Movie,” will be available via streaming platforms, cable and other digital platforms.
