The next morning after breakfast, I took a short walk through streets lined with designer shops and popular restaurants.
I reached the beach and spent my morning sunbathing on La Croisette, a long public stretch of sand that runs along Cannes’ seaside promenade.
In the afternoon I was taken to the iconic Palais des Festivals, where the 15th edition of Les Plages Electroniques took place this weekend.
The electronic music festival had returned after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
I was lucky enough to speak to one of the organizers who revealed that the core of the festival was the desire to host an event that the people of Cannes could enjoy as much as visitors to the French Riviera.
