Iggy Pop, Dylan Thomas, Cannes

Iggy Pop will be speaking at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity tomorrow. He is featured in the “The Grey 10th Annual Music Seminar: Do Not Go Gentle” at 3:00 Cannes time. That’s 9:00am EDT, 6:00am PDT in the US. He will be interviewed by Grey London chairman and chief creative officer Nils Leonard.
As a promo for the event, Iggy recited Dylan Thomas’ Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night in this video.
Leonard said of Iggy, “2016 will be the year we lost heroes. But I worry that people are starting to wait for the next cultural figurehead to mourn, and it’s bullshit. Like the world’s worst meme. Incredible living artists and icons continue to challenge and define our culture, and Iggy is their viking king. Iggy has shrugged off what age is supposed to mean, convention, and expectation. He’s grown old disgracefully and successfully. He is a real-life beautiful and vicious inspiration.”
Iggy’s latest album, Post Pop Depression was released in March, 2016.
