The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity will be in-person and return to Cannes, France 20-24 of June 2022.

This marks the return of the real-life festival after 2 years, as the 2021 festival was forced to go virtual.

Chairman of Lions, Philip Thomas said: “We can’t wait to reunite the industry and bring the community together once again.

“For over 67 years, Cannes Lions has served as a convening force for the global creative community.

“As the world continues to shift and change we know that our role as conveners needs to evolve.”

The festival will continue to be offered through the Lions Membership, the subscription-based, digital offering launched in March 2020 and with more than 10,000 members that facilitated the festival throughout the pandemic.

Thomas says this provides Lions, “an opportunity to democratise, innovate and reinvent the Festival for the future.”

The membership has allowed members to receive complimentary access to Cannes Lions Live in 2021.

Managing director of Lions, Simon Cook, said: “We are putting the foundations in place to build a purposeful Festival that allows our community to come together in a meaningful way.

“Through highly curated content, community networking opportunities and agenda setting initiatives Cannes Lions will provide an annual forum for the global industry to address the most pressing issues the industry and world are facing today.”

Lions recently kicked off its annual State of Creativity Study, whose results will form the Lions 2022 editorial agenda across all of its platforms and events. Cannes Lions will open its call for content in January.
