Matt Allen and his team have spent the past six years slinging free ice cream at festivals and concerts across the country as Ice Cream Man. Last summer, the group started filming its travels for the documentary Road Trippin’ with Ice Cream Man and recording performances by the likes of MGMT, Broken Social Scene, Cold War Kids, Avett Bros, The Antlers and Here We Go.
Ice Cream Man will hit the festival circuit once again this summer with the goal of giving away 50,000 Ben & Jerry’s ice creams cones and cups. Allen and his crew will continue to document their journeys and film a variety of performances at festivals across the country.
