For the first time in three years. HowTheLightGetsIn will be back in full swing right here where it all began: nestled under the Black Mountains on the idyllic banks of the Wye. But we'll also be streaming many of the weekend's hottest debates and biggest talks live around the globe.

If the past three years of virtual festivals have taught us anything, it's that big thinking is more important than ever - no matter where you call home. And through our groundbreaking virtual-reality festival site, we've reached an even larger audience around the globe.

So if you can't make it to Hay to revel in the atmosphere for real with fellow attendees, speakers and artists alike - join the festival from home.
