Important ticket info:

GALA 2019 is completely sold out.

If you can no longer make the festival and need to resell your ticket then please ensure you use RA’s resale system which protects against ticket fraud and means you are guaranteed to receive your money back at face value.

In a stand against the secondary ticket market, GALA will not be accepting tickets purchased through any 3rd party reseller platforms such as Ticketswap or Seatwave. The secondary ticket market not only causes inflated event prices but also confusion and disappointment on the door as well as encouraging fake tickets to be produced and sold.

All tickets to GALA 2019 must be purchased through Resident Advisor to ensure entry into the festival.

Age restrictions:

GALA is an 18+ only licensed event – no children are allowed on site. We will be operating a Challenge 25 policy at the gates so please ensure you bring ID.
