Prospect spent the Bank Holiday weekend at HowTheLightGetsIn, the world’s largest philosophy and music festival, which runs until 1st June.
Here’s a taster of what we got up to:
The Globe, the festival’s permanent venue, ran parties every night over the weekend
The first major philosophy session “Heresy, Truth and the Future” focused on the festival’s central themes, providing some much-needed intellectual respite from the unrelenting rain. The panel comprised an all-star line-up. Outspoken columnists David Aaronovitch and Laurie Penny, squared up against former GCHQ director David Omand, and sociologist Frank Furedi.
