Over five packed days, hundreds of the world's most inspiring people will take to the Cannes Lions stages to share their insights, advice and expertise. They'll be delivering inspirational keynotes, sessions that equip you with essential insights about the future of creativity and the business fuelling it, case studies about pioneers who are already leading the way and tangible ‘how to’ learning that will give you a professional and market advantage. And you can watch every talk live as it happens with this pass, including all the content at the specialist Lions Health event.
Awards have been at the heart of the Festival since it began in the 1950s. This year, every piece of work awarded a Lion will be honoured at one of the Festival’s five red carpet awards shows. This is where you’ll see the ideas that are moving creativity forward revealed live in the world-famous Palais theatres and meet the people behind the work. A ticket to each of the five shows across the week is included with the Complete Pass.
Content extends beyond the theatres of the Palais des Festival during Cannes Lions. There are also daily talks on the Festival’s official beaches. This is where you’ll hear from the marketing leaders at the world’s biggest brands and the creative leaders from the most awarded agencies. They’ll be sharing stories of personal and professional triumph and revealing how they’ve put creativity to work within their organisations, with spectacular success.
Each year the start and end of the Festival are marked by the official Cannes Lions parties. With special guest performers and free food and drink at both parties, they're the perfect opportunities to meet colleagues, make contacts and let your hair down.
Each day of the Festival, take a chance to reflect on what you've learned and chat to fellow delegates with a cold beer as the sun sets over the Med. Complimentary drinks on the beach are the perfect opportunity to unwind and recharge ahead of the evening's activities and awards.
The main festival venue is split into two spaces: Palais I is where the mainstage talks take place, alongside the exhibition of the work and awards shows; and Palais II is home to Lions Health and our dedicated space exploring the future of innovation and entertainment. Your pass gives complete access to both spaces, as well as the Piazza in front of the red carpet steps.
Just outside the Palais des Festivals, the beachfront row of Cabanas where some of the world's most innovative companies set up shop during the Festival. Open to festival delegates, brands use their Cabanas to host parties, meetings, exclusive product launches and demos and their own content sessions. Previous Cabana hosts include the likes of Hulu, Live Nation, Unilever, Deloitte Digital and NBC Universal.
From the harbour to iconic hotels, the entire city transforms into a hub of creativity during the Festival: the official Festival Fringe includes everything from talks and parties to meetings and beachside fitness, thanks to our diverse range of commercial partners. A pass includes access to all official Fringe events, hosted by the likes of YouTube, Spotify, Havas, IPG, Girls Lounge, Facebook, Oracle, Twitter, Pinterest, Shutterstock, Haymarket, Open X and the United Nations.
Just outside the Palais des Festivals is the Palais Beach, a space for festival delegates to network and relax during the week. It's where the daily happy hours take place and is home to various different exhibitions and installations to inspire you while you network.
Outside the iconic Carlton Hotel, the Cannes Lions Beach is one of the Festival’s top networking spots. It’s where delegates can grab a drink or a bite to eat throughout the day, host a meeting or enjoy a talk from some of the world’s best creative thinkers.
Get online quickly and easily while you’re at the Festival with free Wi-Fi both inside the official venues and all along the beachfront Croisette.
