Music and Performance

Celebrate music, comedy and dance at HowTheLightGetsIn May 2021. With award-winning singer-songwriters, jazz, world music and up-and-coming DJs, these acts rival the best of indie music festivals.  

The comedy programme is cutting-edge. From the charismatic and absurd to oblique world-views, let HowTheLightGetsIn flip what you know about the wise and the fools.   

And, of course, the much-anticipated Dance Tent will return - prepare for the most energetic virtual DJ set of your life!
