HowTheLightGetsIn Festival

After three years, the world’s largest Music and Philosophy Festival returns home to the idyllic embankment of the River Wye for a bank holiday weekend of revelry, reflection, and parties.

“There is a crack in everything…that’s how the light gets in”, goes the Leonard Cohen song from which the festival gets its name. And HowTheLightGetsIn brings its own special form of magic to everyone. There is no other place on the planet where you can meet as many of the world’s leading thinkers, discover the most cutting-edge ideas, and party and dance late into the night.

Tickets are available now. All students are eligible for a 30% discount.
