Music and Performance

Expertly-chosen music and irresistible comedy are an essential part of all HowTheLightGetsIn festivals. And the return to London is an even bigger celebration! After days of discussion and new discoveries, join us to celebrate with an incredible line-up of musicians and comedy.

With award-winning singer-songwriters, soulful jazz, world music and up-and-coming DJs, these acts rival the best of indie music festivals.  

The comedy programme is unexpected and brilliant. Find the absurd, charming, quirky and philosophical. Let HowTheLightGetsIn London 2021 introduce you to up-and-coming acts and cult favourites alike.

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