What's on in Cannes June 2017

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.

The month begins with one of the largest global music conferences in the form of MIDEM - music makers, cutting-edge technologies, brands & talent come together to enrich the passionate relationship between people and music. This conference also brings with it two days of live acts, special venues and an array of international music talent...Iris Gold, XXX and Wyclef Jean are on the line up in 2017.

From the 17th 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 Madonna Badger, Alexander Wang and David Droga, plus interviews with celebrities like Halle Berry, Dame Helen Mirren and Jessica Alba.

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!

Thinking of our stomachs...Les Etoiles de Mougins, the annual gastronomic festival in Mougins takes place at the end of the month. For two days you will find some of the world's top chefs creating some delicious dishes. The village of Mougins is transformed into a vast open-air theatre where Michelin-starred chefs showcase their talents. It's time to eat!
