Our Pick of the Best Events at L’Été à Cannes this July
The Palais Festival - Grand Auditorium (16th July)
The hugely popular entertainment show the Voice is touching down in Cannes for the first time ever. A collection of songs will be performed by the 8 finalists of 2017 to a live band. This is a unique chance to relive some of the magical moments from the latest series, all performed on stage. So spruce up your singing and head to the Grand Auditorium to see the stars of tomorrow.
Bay of Cannes (13th, 21st and 29th July)
This Pyrotechnic extravaganza starts at 10pm with fireworks let off above the Bay of Cannes. In this International Fireworks Competition, teams from different countries compete to win prizes. The displays are truly unforgettable, on par with what you might experience at New Year’s Eve. Set to thunderous soundtracks, the show lasts around thirty-minutes, ending with a spectacular celebration of three landmark anniversaries including the 70th Film Festival.
The Palais Festival (27th until 30th July)
You have until 30th July to catch Cirque Éloize’s dazzling reimagining of the Wild West at the Palais Festival; it’s a nifty little circus package including comedy and dance. Theatre and circus collide for 85 minutes of non-stop live folk music combined with acrobatics and juggling. Founded in 1993, the Cirque Éloize is one of the world’s leading contemporary circus companies.
Old Port (23rd July)
The Old Port of Cannes embraces the traditions of medieval society with its jousting tournament. On water, local teams stage a display of cavalier daring. Steersmen row their boats towards another into the port. Lances crack and clatter as jousters tilt at each other, balance and topple on their platforms before tumbling into the sea. The scene is like a panto that’s come to life in a lively parade. Restaurants offer seats to watch the action amidst an atmosphere of awe and wonder.
Villa Domergue (30th June until 24th September) 11 am – 7pm
An intriguing exhibition that explores the myriad of styles that modernity inspired, including Surrealism and Dadaism. Gathering images by Man Ray and the designs of Jean-Gabriel Domergue, and merging photography and decorative arts, this show is provocative from start to finish. The experimental pieces are brought to life in the villa that Domergue designed himself.
Macé Beach (Saturday 1st July)
Set on the golden sands of Macé Beach, the Pages a la Plague’s new library offers a gorgeous setting to get lost in a good book. Paperbacks and magazines are available for loan, with visitors reading while admiring the sea views. Unwind on deckchairs as the waves lap the shore just metres away… a great opportunity for children and adults to rediscover the pleasures of reading.
Verdun Square (12th and 26th July)
Verdun Square is an exquisite garden just off the promenade and the setting for an annual dancing fiesta that stages intimate performances of rock, tango and salsa. You’ll need your dancing shoes for this magical party, with a band covering all the greats from 8:30 until 12:30am. At night, the palm trees and flora are illuminated: a setting every bit as ravishing as the music.
The Palais Festival (12th and 13th July)
Combining well-known bands and hot new talent every year, the Pentiero Festival has become beloved by those who go for a relaxed festival atmosphere that doesn’t scrimp on musical talent. This summer, it will take a radical turn towards rock, while remaining true to its diverse roots. The acts feature the best of the international and national rock scene with Team Ghost, Rat Boy, Toy, Circa Waves, The Soft Moon and Twin Peaks.
