The HowTheLightGetsIn online festival in May 2020 broke new ground. It was a world first, simultaneously streaming multiple live events, with audience questions and real time comments. And like a real festival it had many social spaces to meet friends with video and sound, listen to fantastic music, laugh along with top comedians and dance with hundreds of others.

Our festival goers were ecstatic: ""I can't even begin to say how amazing this has all been. :-) just stellar!! (Jo) The festival has been an absolute godsend for so many of us. Thank you so much for making it not only possible but truly extraordinary"" (Julia Johnson) "" Really don't want to say goodbye to the last four days - thanks all, it's been very very special."" (Bob) ""This is world leading stuff - they managed to replicate the feeling of a festival with the internet"" (Joe Wynd) ""The thought that has gone into the event is truly amazing"" (Sweyn)

HowTheLightGetsIn May 2021 will build on that experience, making it even more remarkable. With events round the clock and from different cultures and countries we will for the first time be able to fully share the festival experience worldwide.
