It's almost summer, so you know what that means: Ice Cream Man Matt Allen is back. Officially, too, in the web series called Road Trippin' With Ice Cream Man on Babelgum. The Long Beach resident is going to be at all the music festivals, giving away free ice cream and hanging out with the cool kids, then filming performances with bands such as MGMT and Broken Social Scene! Ahh, what a life.
The Road Trippin' With Ice Cream Man series starts with new episodes on May 31. This year, Allen has a new ice cream truck named Beau that's housing 50,000 Ben & Jerry's ice creams to give away. Watch out for the Ice Cream Man at the following festivals: Sasquatch, Wakarusa, Bonnaroo, Pool Parties, Forecastle Festival, Pitchfork, Hardfest, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and ATP.
Here's the Ice Cream Man with MGMT:
