With HIF Player you’ve always got the best seats in the house.

We’ve launched #HIFAtHome to give you access to Festival events, recordings from the archives, and resources for families. Think of it as your virtual Festival experience, bringing you the best from all of our Festivals until you can join us in person once again.

With recordings and videos added every few days, there’s always something new to delight and entertain.

For podcast fans, we’ve got great news. We’ve also launched our HIF Player audio recordings as a podcast for you to listen to on the go. Available wherever you get your podcasts.
