What is the basic structure of a 5mx5m cabana?

  • 5 panels along each side, with each panel measuring approximately 1 m long X 2.20 m high. (Please note the panels used to build the cabanas are not completely uniform in size and there will be slight changes in the measurements).
  • Each panel can be either solid or glass panels.
  • The inside of the cabana is 25sqm and in addition a 25sqm terrace
  • Each cabana is separated by plants.
  • For double cabanas of 10m x 5m the inside area is 50sqm and the terrace is 50sqm 

Is the ceiling flat or does it peak like the tent? 

It's a flat ceiling for the 5x5 cabanas and a peak ceiling for the 10x10 cabanas. The fabric is white.

Where will the air con and power units be? 
Options are in the attached plans.

At what time can people have access to the cabanas? 
The Cabanas open from 8am and must be closed by midnight. 

How do we access the cabanas when we first arrive? 
The Cannes Lions team will meet you on site to give you your Cabana key, Cabana Passes and a contact sheet.  

Is there a storage area in the cabana town where we can store some boxes? What is the size of the space available for the storage?

  • There is not a storage facility in Cabana Town, but there is storage in the Palais
  • If you do not have space for everything to be kept in your cabana we can arrange deliveries in the morning or afternoon every few days. This information must be emailed to sophieb@ascential.com

Is there a possibility to hang material from the ceiling? 
No this is not possible. 

Do you have electrical restrictions for the cabanas?

  • 5x5 cabanas have 3,5 KW
  • 10x10 cabanas have 10 KW (French plugs)
  • There is electricity inside only, but you can have electricity outside too, on request only
  • Should you want to have more electrical power available, please contact Virginie Stilgenbauer on stilgenbauer@palaisdesfestivals.com who will be able to manage this request

Is Wi-Fi available inside the cabana and what is the name of the password? 
WiFi will be available. The WiFi log in and password will be confirmed in May. If you require a hardwire connection please contact Eric Legros at ViaPass directly on e.legros@viapass.com 

Do we need exterior lighting to have night-time events? 
It is light until at least 9:30pm in Cannes in June, so usually outside light is not required. The cabanas officially close at midnight so if you plan on organising a party until this time you will have to look into outside lighting. 

If I rent a screen, how can we display content on the TV screen?

  • You will need to bring a USB drive to display any content on the TV
  • We can also run an HDMI cable from TV to a laptop
  • You should use format .MOV H264 progressive for video content to play on the screens

What are the food and beverage options? 
Please refer to the supplier list for catering options 



Is there a person in charge for the cleaning and what is the schedule? 
Cleaning happens every night (rubbish emptied, vacuumed). If you wish to order more cleaning, please contact Virginie Stilgenbauer stilgenbauer@palaisdesfestivals.com 

Can we have access to the public toilets and what are the opening hours?

  • You have public toilets in front of the Croisette Cabanas next to the square. The opening hours are 8AM – 9PM from Monday to Sunday
  • Palais toilets can be accessed from 8am – 8pm for those with eligible passes. Cabana Pass holders will need to use the public toilets.



  • There are security guards patrolling the Cabanas, please do not leave any valuables unattended.
  • Any precautions you take are in your best interest as neither Cannes Lions nor the Palais can accept responsibility for any loss or damage to any goods at any time during the show. 
  • If items cannot be watched it is important that they are properly secured. 
  • Should you require additional Security Officers to protect your Cabana, this must be booked one month in advance via the Palais, who will provide Security Officers from their approved security supplier. 

It is not possible to hire Cabana Security from any other suppliers. Should you have any questions regarding security for Cannes Lions, please contact our Director of Security: Richard.West@ascential.com
