Time Out says

Journey through the lineage of dance music at this fest over the May Bank Holiday in Peckham

This Peckham party has a big focus on street food and craft beer alongside the DJ-driven line-up – beats and eats, as it were. With a lineup focussing on variations of underground electronic music (but mostly house and techno), and some live instrumental acts thrown in for extra jazzy measure, it's returning in 2022 with three-days of programming and long-term collaborators Rhythm Section and Horse Meat Disco.

The first acts announced for Gala's 2022 edition include Gerd Janson, Goldie, Job Jobse, Shanti Celeste, and Josey Rebelle. Brilliant Corners' Giant Steps sound system will bring the noise, meanwhile the Thursday lineup will shift the focus to live music, with Children of Zeus, Nu Genea, Ezra Collective founding member Joe Amon Jones, and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 playing across bass, soul, jazz and Afrobeat. More lineup announcements will follow in coming months.
