What to expect

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. 

HowTheLightGetsIn brings its own special form of magic to everyone. There is no other place on the planet where you can fill your days with inspiration from the world's leading thinkers and party and dance late into the night.

At HowTheLightGetsIn Hay 2022, you can join a debate about the nature of the universe with the world's top scientists, laugh until your sides hurt with the UK's best comedians, dance by the river to the finest beats, dine with our speakers at Inner Circle events or indulge in sumptuous long table banquets.
