Gala is an independent festival that took place in its new location Peckham Rye Park on Sunday 27th of May, previously held in Brockwell Park. It is a day filled with live music, pop-up London based eateries and breweries such as Honest Burgers, Other Side Fried and Frontier which added a strong South London street scene vibe to the experience.
The diverse line up this year included the likes of Derrick Carter, Crazy P Soundsystem and Horse Meat Disco, who provided the soundtrack to the day with infectious DJ sets and performances that set the crowd alight.
The brand new location of Peckham Rye Park felt appropriate, being one of the most up-and-coming areas in London. Filled with independent retail stores, restaurants and bars it was only right that it played host to the festival for 2018.
