Spotify Is Back to the Beach for Its Tenth Year at the Annual Cannes Lions Festival


Each year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in France, Spotify showcases how our platform inspires artists, creators, and advertisers to do what they do best: Create. In fact, this year is Spotify's tenth year at Cannes Lions. For this special occasion, we're pressing play on a Spotify Beach that's more alive than ever. All week, we'll bring to life the immersive experience of our platform, welcoming attendees to explore the home of creativity: Spotify.

From Monday, June 17, through Thursday, June 20, Spotify Beach will be a sunup-to-sundown hub of activity with daytime sessions from some of the world's most influential voices, including EGOT-winner John Legend, 10-time Grammy-nominated singer Janelle Mon e, and singer-songwriters Tyla and Shaboozey. We'll also be hosting two evenings of can't-miss concerts featuring Benson Boone, Tyla, Shaboozey, and Arcade Fire, and a DJ set from Justice. John Legend will perform during o ur special opening-night soir e taking place at a secret location as well.

Spotify is home to premier content that drives culture. It's part of our DNA to stay innovative, and we use this superpower to create impactful connections between artists, listeners, and brands, said Brian Berner, Spotify's Head of Global Advertising Sales & Partnerships. This year, we're spotlighting the culture-defining creators that live on Spotify and how we've evolved as a platform to become the destination for advertisers looking to creatively engage with fans in an authentic and impactful way.

More than ever, this year's Spotify Beach lineup features the next generation of superstars like Tyla, Shaboozey, and Benson, who have captured the eyes and ears of music fans in 2024 and have some of the hottest songs of the summer, said Joe Hadley, Global Head of Artist Partnerships & Audience at Spotify. We've always taken pride in our Spotify Beach stage. It's a place where superstars and rising talents are celebrated, a real-life representation of Spotify's commitment to growing careers at every level.

Spotify Beach will also be the spot for a series of interactive, immersive experiences, including a Jam Bike offering daily Jam playlists for guests to contribute to, a Song Psychic experience, a personalized Mix Bar featuring beach-vibes music made just for you, an interactive coffee bar where guests can listen in live to our podcast recording sessions, and much more. Spotify's ever-changing daylist playlists will be the guiding theme of our Spotify Beach space. We'll ask our guests the question on everybody's minds this year: What's on your daylist? Additionally, our meeting rooms and podcast studio will be styled in a daylist motif so guests can step into the daylist experience.
