What to expect

Whether it’s your first time at the Festival or you’re a veteran visitor, here’s what you can expect both inside the Palais and around the city of Cannes.



No two Cannes Lions talks are the same – but each will challenge your thinking, inspire your creativity and improve your work. Take a look at this year’s exceptional speaker lineup and Festival programme.


History is made every night at the Cannes Lions Awards Shows – and with a Festival pass, you get to be part of it. Whether you’re watching from the crowd or hoping to take to the stage with your winning work, here’s where you can learn more about Awards submissions, Juries and shortlisting.


The entire creative community comes to Cannes Lions. This is your moment to connect with them all. Build business relationships, talk on the terrace or meet over dinner in the city – however you choose to network at the Festival, this is where you’ll find all the info you need.


There are plenty of opportunities to connect with Cannes Lions delegates away from traditional networking. You can solidify the relationships you’ve made throughout the week at the Festival Closing Party or make memories at the unforgettable experiences our partners – some of the world’s biggest brands – put on across Cannes.

Interested in becoming a partner yourself? Find out more and get in touch with us here.


Learning is everywhere at the Festival. From onstage insights and inspiration in the people you meet, to structured offerings like the Academies and Competitions.

Cannes Lions is where young and emerging talent from around the world comes to develop. Find out how to be a part of it here.

The Work

The Work is home to the world’s best work, insights and outcomes – all in one place. It’s where you’ll find all the work case studies from Cannes Lions 2024, as well as the digital stage content from the Festival. Your Festival pass lets you watch a curated selection of live and on-demand talks, and the live daily Awards Shows, digitally.

And this time, you won’t mind taking The Work home with you. You’ll be able to catch up on the Festival, on demand and in your own time, until 12 July.

Digital Pass

The Digital Pass puts you in the best seat in the house. Yours.

It’s the Festival delivered to your home or office – giving you all the live streamed and on-demand content included with other passes, but bolstered by exclusive content like morning briefings with the LIONS Intelligence team. Find out more and pick up your pass here.
