The World's Largest Philosophy and Music Festival
Over 200 events, 80 debates and talks, and 100 music and performance events.
HowTheLightGetsIn Festival returns to Hay-on-Wye next May! On the edge of the Black Mountains, alongside the River Wye, you'll find the world's leading thinkers debating cutting edge ideas as well as an inspiring programme of music, comedy, culture and performance.
Following the sell-out success of our London festival, we are taking the theme, Tribal Truths and New Wisdom, to Hay-on-Wye next May with a whole new set of debates on the big ideas that underpin our increasingly tribal world. Take a look at our first debates here!
