And that's a wrap!

Phew! HowTheLightGetsIn Online 2020 is over.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you for making the world's first fully digital festival experience such a success.

The theme for our Hay festival was going to be 'Uncharted Territory', and hearing the leading thinkers plot their route through the unpredictable waters that the whole world is currently navigating is more important than ever.

Over four days of a long weekend, we had over 200 events including groundbreaking debates, talks, along with the hottest music and comedy - all set on a virtual festival site.

We'll be releasing the festival videos on IAI tv in the coming weeks. Visit for more HowTheLightGetsIn content from previous festivals now!

A huge heartfelt thank you goes out to our donors, whose generous contributions made HowTheLightGetsIn Online possible. We've listed you in all your glory on our donors page here. Thank you.
