Celebs Pay Attention: Euro Party Broker Selling Tickets to Vanity Fair’s Cannes Party for $18,786


I often wonder if celebrities wonder who they’re partying with at galas.

They should pay attention to this: Cornucopia Events is selling ticket the Cannes Vanity Fair party for 15,000 UK sterling. Or $18,786.

So is the Vanity Fair shindig exclusive? Not exactly. If you’ve got the cash, you’re in.

Vanity Fair will deny this occurs, but Cornucopia and other party promoters have been running this fame for years. Does Vanity Fair get a kickback? Someone does, that’s for sure.

It all makes sense. There are only so many celebs in Cannes. Real filmmakers and industry people, particularly press, aren’t invited. The magazine needs a crowd of some kind to make the stars feel good. So what can you but entertain a bought audience?

As for Cornucopia, they need a proof reader. They’re advertising the 2025 party.
