Music and Performance

Our music programme is what makes HowTheLightGetsIn unique.

We carefully handpick a Festival Live music programme that combines the underground and cutting-edge with the most established and acclaimed. Our festival has drawn the likes of Hot Chip, Ewan Pearson, Rae Morris and Maribou State, and it's not hard to see why - nowhere else provides an environment quite like HowTheLightGetsIn. From exhilarating dance beats to enchanting solo singers, every taste is catered to. Day and night, discover in the nooks and crannies of our idyllic sites every music genre from tribal dance to Welsh male choirs, and of course our legendary nightly themed parties.
