What's on in Cannes June 2018

June is almost here, meaning that the season is in full swing and events are springing up in and around Cannes.

As well as the Provencal market, a firm favourite, you will find that June plays host to some of the biggest conference events of the year. Here are some of our top picks this month.

MIDEM Music Conference

Cannes

The month begins with one of the largest global music conferences in the form of MIDEM - music makers, cutting-edge technologies, brands and talent come together to enrich the passionate relationship between people and music. This conference also brings with it four days of live acts, special venues and an array of international music talent.

For those who love horses then you are in for a treat! The Cannes Jumping International 2018 is taking place from the 7th to 9th June. A fantastic chance to see some of the best professional riders (and horses) from around the globe on the Longines Global Champions Tour.

Thinking of our stomachs... Les Etoiles de Mougins, the annual gastronomic festival in Mougins takes place at the middle of the month. For two days the village of Mougins is transformed into a vast open-air theatre where Michelin-starred chefs showcase their talents. It's time to eat!

Cannes Lions 2018

Cannes

From the 18th June, the Cannes Lions host their annual International Festival of Creativity. Awards, networking, talks and celebrity seminars all combine to create one of the most popular conferences of the year. This year the programme consists of talks given by some 'creative giants' such as Sophia Amoruso, Edward Enniful, Elizabeth Rutledge or Lars Silberbauer plus interviews with celebrities like David Oyelowo, Thandie Newton, Conan O'Brien, David Schwimmer, Kevin Costner and Paloma Faith.

Fete de la Musique

Cannes

Next up, the ever popular Fete de la Musique, an event celebrated across France on the 21st June. Launched in 1982 by the French Ministry for Culture, the Fete is different from a music festival in that all the concerts and performances are free to the public and none of the artists are paid. Authorities waive normal licensing laws, allowing the revelry to continue as long as there are people with the stamina to enjoy it – it is definitely one of the not-to-be-missed events of the summer social calendar!
