Cannes Lions unveils its 2024 programme

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity’s 2024 extensive content programme will showcase more than 150 hours of content, with around 500 speakers from across the spectrum of creativity. The Festival runs from 17 to 21 June, in Cannes, France.

About this year’s line-up, Natasha Woodwal, Director of Content, LIONS, said, “Our open call for content gives us unparalleled insight into what matters most to the industry right now, and we’ve used this to design a programme filled with a diversity of voices offering different perspectives of global challenges. Speakers include creatives, monks, comedians, artists, filmmakers, scientists, economists, trend forecasters and Paralympians – it’s reflective of the multifaceted world of creativity.”

Simon Cook, CEO, of LIONS, added, “We’ve identified the key areas that are top of mind for our industry and community and used these to create five core content streams that will run throughout the Festival.
