This latest wave of names includes Ibiza kingpin Maceo Plex who has an astral techno sound, as well as hit making deep house duo CamelPhat who won a Grammy for their huge ‘Cola’ track and the one and only Maya Jane Coles who always serves up a real trip.

This famous French gathering plays out over three days on the Beach, the Terrace, the Croisette and the Rotonde with a more diverse offering than ever before as well as a stage on the sea. The brand new open water party is on a stage made from buoys with an aquatic DJ set to make the whole sea an open air dancefloor. The afterparties are coming back in 2019 with an additional afterparty on Sunday evening at the Rotonde of the Palais des Festival, which will be transformed into an pop-up club, a dance floor with a capacity of 3000 people where festival-goers can extend the party until 5am.

Aside from the festival there’s plenty of opportunities to soak up the city’s rich history and culture — gaze out into the Med enjoying Cannes’ 7km of beautiful beaches; dine at its many esteemed eateries; check out the Old Town, or visit the Lérin Islands.

With house, techno and EDM all catered to across multiple days and stages, Les Plages Electroniques 2019 is set to be the best yet.
