The United Kingdom's Hay Festival will be in person for the first time in three years.

Fittingly, the lineup of the 2022 "Woodstock of the mind" includes some eye-popping literary names, reports the Guardian (using former President Bill Clinton's description of the event).

Nobel laureate Abdulrazak Gurnah, Booker Prize winners Damon Galgut and Bernardine Evaristo, and celebrated novelist Elif Shafak are among those making appearances during the eleven-day festival.

Also joining the festival: Letters Live, which invites performers to read notable letters from history.

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is among the readers who will be participating to raise money for the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

The Hay Festival takes place May 26 to June 5 in the Welsh border town Hay-on-Wye.
