All your questions answered

What does an online ticket get me?

The Online ticket grants access to the online festival, streamed live from Hay in real time. With over 80 events across 5 stages, our live streamed coverage of the festival includes many of the hottest debates and talks. Using our unique virtual reality platform, drop into each venue and follow the action. Meet and chat to other online attendees, explore the festival site, and enjoy the next best thing to being here in Hay.

Can I attend the whole weekend?

We'll be streaming debates, talks and interviews from 5 of our main stages on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June. Pick up a single-day ticket to catch an unmissable debate, or choose a full weekend pass to save on the price of both day tickets.

What's it like to attend HowTheLightGetsIn online?
