It is the middle of May and unless you are living under a rock, you have been keeping up with everything that is the Cannes International Film Festival like the rest of us. Every celebrity, model, and billionaire in one city for a week.. Like Los Angeles with way more pressure, and a lot more fun.
Hotel Du Cap
The first stop of your weekend on the French Riviera should be your hotel of course, and if you’re lucky enough to be staying amongst the rich and famous you’re probably at the Hotel Du Cap because it’s basically ‘THE HOTEL’ of the city. They are hosting Amfar’s Annual Cinema Against Aids party on May 19th and if it is anything like last year you won’t want to miss it, if you can get in. In the past this is the event where spaceship rides with Leonardo DiCaprio were sold, as well as a Banksy from his personal collection. The 23rd edition is being hosted by Sharon Stone, Kevin Spacey, Milla Jovovich, Adrien Brody, Heidi Klum, Carine Roitfeld, Harvey Weinstein, just to name a few, so you can see why after so many years this is still the hottest and most exclusive ticket around!
Palm Beach Casino – Cannes
When you’ve had enough of all the glitz, glamour, and ball gowns, it is time to get down and dirty at this private after hours party; a pop up hosted by famed LA hip-hop club ‘1OAK’ at The Palm Beach Casino. A favorite to celebs like Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, Rick Ross, and so many more. The doors don’t open until around 3am, and this year Chris Brown, Steve Aoki, and Lil Jon are just a few of the stars brought out by nightlife guru’s Richie Akiva and Ronnie Madra to heat up the city with their performances. You will definitely want to have ‘ended up at 1OAK.’
Have you had enough partying after 12 days of Cannes or are you ready to rally and get back out there? Let’s hope you’re ready because the French Riviera is not done with you yet. F1OAK and Bootsy Bellows are following all of the action and hosting another slew of after parties.(between May 26th-29th) It shouldn’t be too hard to keep up with if you follow the models diet aka the 3 C’s; cocaine, cigarettes, and champagne. (not promoting it, of course) It’s time to fuel those luxurious yachts up and have your captain get a move on, the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix awaits!
