HowTheLightGetsIn Global 2020

HowTheLightGetsIn, the world's largest philosophy and music festival, is going Global and Online.

Over the weekend of the 19-20 September, we'll have more than 200 events all live streamed across 7 stages with multiple events running simultaneously. Nobel prize winners, leading politicians, the world's top thinkers, the latest and most challenging ideas, the hottest bands and comedy acts, they will all be there.

HowTheLightGetsIn Global 2020, is fully immersive. We had our first HowtheLightGetsIn online festival in May, and now we are building on that experience and stepping it up a gear. We are working with video game developers to create an experience that's as close as possible to real life. Move between venues and explore the festival site. Meet others along the way. Chat to your friends privately, make new friends, talk over the events you've seen, bump into speakers and artists, listen to some great music together, and dance the night away at our disco.

Events are live from London, Delhi and New York providing 19 hours of world beating content each day. Ensuring that whichever continent you call home, you can be part of the HowTheLightGetsIn festival community. There is no other experience like it. Cancel your plans, ring fence the weekend. Whatever you do, don't miss it.
