The party scene at Cannes Lions 2022 is ready to roar again after a two-year hiatus.
Set to take place from June 20 to June 24, the annual International Festival of Creativity — which draws top ad execs and A-list celebs — returns with a presence from mega-brands including NBCUniversal, Spotify, Meta, Snapchat and MediaLink.
The fest has traditionally been known for is rosé-fueled party scene as much its hot topic panels.
This year, streaming platform Spotify will take over its portion of the Cannes beach with nightly performances by acts including Post Malone, The Black Keys, Dua Lipa, Kendrick Lamar and more, to give attendees and locals an immersive concert experience.
Plenty of partying will also take place offshore. We hear NBCUniversal and its subsidiary Bravo will set sail aboard the Below Deck Yacht that will feature a performance by Boy George. Though it’s unclear which Bravo talent will be aboard, Page Six can confirm that Andy Cohen, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” stars Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais will be at the festival, as well as “Below Deck” stars Captain Sandy Yawn and Kate Chastain.
Brand Innovators will also take to the high seas with a sunset cruise to Monaco, followed by a VIP dinner at the Yacht Club de Monaco.
Back on land, we’re told that Snapchat and Vogue plan to host a very exclusive, private dinner with founder Evan Spiegel — plus A-list guests including Naomi Campbell, Eva Longoria, Paris Hilton and Topshop heiress Chloe Green (sans her ‘hot felon’ ex-fiancé) — ahead of the brands’ “Redefining the Body” exhibit running at Centre d’art La Malmaison.
The exhibition will showcase iconic high-fashion pieces from fashion houses such as Balenciaga, Dior and Gucci, accompanied by augmented reality experiences to try on the threads yourself.
Sting closed out the 2019 Cannes Lions festival with a surprise performance at a sprawling villa for Live Nation and Citi’s final bash, but a source told us that the entertainment group isn’t hosting the hottest ticketed event in town this year because its focusing on its music festivals including Rolling Loud and Lollapalooza.
