It's been said before and, no doubt, it'll be said again in the future but Cannes Lions have released yet more big names, proving that this could be their best-ever line-up for speakers.

Oscar-winning actress, Helen Mirren and heart-throb actor, Tom Hiddleston have joined other celebrities and stars of the creative world to speak at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in June 2017. Joining an already star-studded line-up that includes Sir Ian McKellan, better known as Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, multi-Grammy award-winning singer Kelly Clarkson, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard and actress and entrepreneur Jessica Alba.

Legendary hip-hop musician Wyclef Jean will also be present during the Cannes Lions event which takes place just a week after the music industry event Midem, during which Wyclef Jean will give an exclusive live performance during Midem By Night on the extraordinary Beach of the Majestic Palace.
