The nights in Cannes are as important at the previous day, so we at The Drum are asking Cannes Lions attendees to recall and relive the amazing parties, conversations and awards celebrations of the previous evening.

Overheard at Cannes - Day 1

So who on Sunday wound up at a legendary movie star's house in the mountains, who (stupidly) stumped up the cash for a party's drinks at The Carlton instead of splitting their earlier food bill, and where had the drink run dry just half an hour after the bar opened?

Giving their lowdowns in this first edition, created in partnership with The Trade Desk, are Mike McGee, co-founder of Framestore, Tom Ollerton, We Are Social's Innovation Director, Critical Mass''s CEO Dianne Wilkins.

As a hungover Wilkins tells us: "This is classic Cannes."
