"There is a crack in everything...that's how the light gets in". So goes the Leonard Cohen song from which our festival gets its name. At HowTheLightGetsIn we shine a light on some of the most exciting theories, and invigorating artists of the current day.

Tucked away at the foot of the black mountains, at HowTheLightGetsIn Hay 2024 you can find the bands you've been waiting to discover, explore ground-breaking ideas that have yet to make their mark, contribute your thoughts, and dance the night away.

Join us for a magical Bank Holiday, in idylic riverside feilds, for a weekend you'll never forgett.
