Gala Festival

Bank Holiday 24th - 26th May 2024

Independent London festival nestled in Peckham Rye Park


About The Event

GALA is a community-driven festival born from a love of the organic, warm and soulful sounds dance music was built on. We celebrate the originators and innovators who defined club culture and champion artists who embody and push forward their legacy.

Nine years on and we’re no less passionate. Even the tiniest detail of the three-day weekend is painstakingly considered. Above all else though, GALA is a party in the truest sense of the word. Great times are guaranteed through crisp sound, a playful nature, high-reaching design and a truly thoughtful delivery.

Aside from the music, we are heavily invested in making a positive impact within our community as well as in the wider contexts of nightlife and electronic music. We promote diversity, transparency and environmental sustainability, fundraise for causes we care about and strive towards creating a safe and open space for all.
