What do you get when you cross the best parts of summer camp with a music festival? Thirty Seconds to Mars’ event Camp Mars. And now the band will be releasing a concert film detailing all the fun they and fans had during the three-day affair.
CAMP MARS: The Concert Film was shot over two days in 2016 and directed by Jared Leto. The band premiered the trailer today (September 30), which shows campers lounging by a pool, shooting arrows and watching Thirty Seconds to Mars perform each night. “I’ve been coming to this area for twenty years,” Leto says via voice over in the opening. “I was always curious about this place and I thought what an amazing location and how fun it would be to do something here.”
2016 marked the second year the band hosted Camp Mars. In addition to concerts, guests enjoyed “hiking, climbing, yoga, cooking classes, raising the flag and camp fire sing-a-longs.” It appears to be a massive hit, because fans appearing in the trailer cannot rave about it enough.
Although no release date has yet been set, CAMP MARS: The Concert Film will be available to stream and download exclusively on new platform VyRT, which Leto founded.
