After the nail-biting build up and emotional release of last year’s festival, we’re beyond thrilled to welcome you back for the sixth edition of GALA. Looking back, the 2021 event was a gamble which truly paid off for everyone present, and the resounding success of thee vent set us up perfectly to head into our most ambitious year yet.

The music at the heart of GALA is still bound together by warmth and soul, whether it’s a veteran legend or a vital newcomer, a live performer or a razor-sharp selector. There are of course some treasured international guests amongst the line-up, but we’ve taken care to platform as much local talent as we can – a value we’re holding onto as we continue to grow year by year.

For us, GALA is nothing without the support of the local community, and that’s why we’re initiating more projects working with local groups to reduce our environmental impact and create opportunities for people from Peckham and the surrounding area. On that note, please take care when visiting our neighbourhood, and support the local businesses in the area where you can on your way to and from GALA.

Above all, we simply can’t wait to get together in Peckham Rye Park again. For ’22 we’ve tweaked the experience in subtle ways, whether looking at stage design differently or widening the scope of sounds.

But like always at GALA you can be sure of a special three days and nights dancing amongst kindred spirits to some of the best music you’ve ever heard, brought to you by the most passionate souls on the planet.

See you in June! The GALA team x
