Fri 22 - Mon 25 May HowTheLightGetsIn Online Festival 2020


The world's largest philosophy and music festival, HowTheLightGetsIn, has gone digital. Our Online Festival will have more than 100 events - all live-streamed, on 7 stages, with a line up of the world's top thinkers, and the hottest bands and comedy acts. You'll also have the chance to meet with other festivalgoers, make friends, talk over the events you've seen, bump into our speakers and artists and listen to some great music together. We want as far as possible to recreate the real festival experience and extend it into something you've never seen before!

Speakers announced thus far include Daniel Kahneman, Paul Krugman, Patricia Churchland, Steven Pinker, Jess Phillips, Will Self, Sally Phillips, Shami Chakrabarti, and many more. We've also got a string of exciting musicians to announce.

There are many more announcements still to come...
