Cannes Red Bull Air Race 2018

Something new is coming to the French Riviera next year.  The pilots of the Red Bull Air Race will be making their way to the stunning seaside city of Cannes from 20-22 of April 2018!

The city, already well known for its famous film festival along with other events such as MIPTV, Cannes Lions and MIPIM to name a few, makes for the ideal location to stage such a high octane venture.

A definite buzz was in the air when it was announced by Mayor David Lisnard on Wednesday, November 8th the world unveiling of the Cannes Red Bull Air Race, a first ever not only for the region but also for the country of France that Cannes will be hosting the event.

Thrill seekers and overall spectators both locally and internationally are already anticipating the season of the flight competition where pilots will fly between 25 and 30 meters above sea level in the bay of Cannes between the Canto port and heliport lighthouse around a circuit delimited by fabric columns.

Attendance for the three days of events is expected to be high so if there is anything you require for your trip to Cannes, connect with Experience The French Riviera early on the best deals for everything from a charter jet to the French Riviera, private driver, and security services to apartment and luxury villa rentals.

This will also be the perfect time to heat up those Grindr and Scruff type apps for those in the cruising zone.

La Divine at KA Cannes

Cannes has not been traditionally known as a distinct gay travel destination but it is gay-friendly and it seems over the years that more and more restaurants, bars and nightclubs are becoming open-minded as to what the LGBT community can bring to an establishment.

One such business that has recently started a new event option in collaboration with members from the gay community is KA Cannes, a bar/lounge, world restaurant and nightclub all rolled into one who have graciously opened their doors to the local LGBT community.

And fortunately it appears as word gets out; the weekly events have been growing in stature.

KA Cannes is situated next to the port in Cannes at the Palais des Festivals (enter at the Casino Barrière, 1 boulevard de la Croisette). KA Cannes offers a variety of hospitality options in a sleek, modern environment with different areas to enjoy throughout the business, including the restaurant section (with a great array of food choices), bar/lounge, an expansive outside terrace that offers panoramic views of the city and of course the nightclub.

Weekly the “La Divine” LGBT event offers either one or multiple DJ’s , drag queens and performers who are highly recognized within  the community such as DJ/Drag star extraordinaire Mika Holly White and DJ Rita Warhol with the party starting at 7:30pm and going all the way until 5am.
