22nd May 2020 @ 9:00 am - 25th May 2020 @ 6:00 pm
The world’s largest philosophy and music festival, HowTheLightGetsIn, touches down in the Wye Valley for the 11th year running in May 2020 with more ideas, magic, music and wonder than ever before. The world’s leading thinkers, from mind-boggling philosophers to award-winning scientists via renowned journalists and headline-making politicians, will gather to debate the most urgent and fascinating topics of our time. In the past, speakers from Deborah Levy to Rory Stewart have conferred on post-truth and patriarchy, the rise of China and decline of the West, the ethics of plastic surgery, and so much more. Debates will take place alongside a stellar line-up of musicians and comedians, following in the footsteps of stars like Lianne LaHavas, Ana Matronic, Donovan, James Acaster and Lou Sanders, all set in atmospheric and intimate venues.
