GALA Festival has announced an extra date and a second wave of artists performing at this year’s event. 

After announcing that GALA would be returning to Peckham Rye Park on 31st July & 1st August this year — taking place across two days for the very first time — the team behind the event have announced a third day and a host of new artists slated to perform.

On Friday 30th July, GALA will host its biggest live stage to date, while also adding more of the capital’s selectors to its line-up. Peckham’s local record shop Rye Wax will also be hosting a programme of talks, discussions and workshops before performances from Rye Wax Residents. Among the live acts added to the Friday line-up are Steam Down Orchestra, experimental MC and pianist Alfa Mist, and Tirza, as well as Nabihah Iqbal, Oscar Jerome, and Berlin-based Wayne Snow. 

In terms of DJing, Joy Orbison, Hyperdub’s Cooly G and Chaos In The CBD will step up for sets, joined by the likes of Rhythm Section’s label head, Bradley Zero, NTS favourite Moxie, Midland and Zakia.

Tickets for the weekender are sold out, and tickets for Friday 30th July are on sale here
