Cannt Kicks Off Week-long Alt- Cannes Fest in London

Cannt Kicks Off Week-long Alt- Cannes Fest in London

Not at Cannes? We’ll see you at ‘Cannt', London's alternative to the Cannes Lions.

Cannt 2014, London’s pop-up advertising festival is back! We’re trading in the French Riviera for the Thames and a week packed with juicy events, across a collaboration of agencies and creative companies.

Set up in 2010 by Laura Jordan Bambach (D&AD, Mr President) and Simon Gill (LBi), the weeklong London romp celebrates the industry’s creators, thinkers and super hard workers. These are the people who make Cannes possible, but seldom get to go. Whilst Cannes is a cloud of Moet, glitz and glamour, Cannt is irreverent, grass-roots fun open to all.

Designed with creative curiosity in mind, the festival boasts an exciting schedule of events. The week includes insightful morning lectures at the Hospital Club, inter-agency dog show ‘Cannt Crufts’ hosted by Albion, Mr President’s 'President Party', and a big closing bash in partnership with The Drum.

Whether you Cannes or you Cannt, this week is about raising a glass and celebrating creativity. So if you’re around then come and join us. And if you’re in Cannes, be sure to wear sun cream.
