Cannes Lions Thursday Night: The Parties


There wasn't an awards ceremony Thursday night in Cannes so all the delagates had to do was party. Which, of course, for advertising people, isn't difficult and comes quite naturally. With big expense budgets and planty of hosted parties there's always something for everyone to do on Le Croisette.

An addition to the too-numerous-to-mention pool parties, rooftop parties, yacht parties and countless other smaller, more private soirées which took place, there were several large parties last night. Ogilvy took over Martinez Beach and gave attendees Zulu WInter to listen to. Google hosted a party at which Groove Armada played. Mindshare and Havas had parties too. And, of course, there was the infamous Shots party at which one delegate tweeted, "Girl at Shots party wearing sunglasses. It's 2AM. Twat." Gotta love late night tweets.
