This Bank Holiday Sunday sees the return of the energetic dance festival, GALA, to London’s Brockwell Park. Combining some of the best names in dance music with independent food and drink stalls that look over one of the greatest cities in the world, GALA is here to serve all of your Bank Holiday needs. This year’s theme is disco, funk, and soul circa 1970s in the peak of New York City’s hedonism. To fulfil this, GALA has rounded up some of the best names in dance music for the day, including Horse Meat Disco, Studio 54, and Crazy P. The line-up also includes new names Love Glove, Future Disco, and Afriquoi to suit all of your boogie needs.

If you fancy a wind-down, thirst quench or a belly fill, GALA has got you covered. With stalls from some of South London’s most popular eateries such as Made of Dough, Oh My Dog, and Bill or Beak, there’ll be enough grub to feed the whole of London. Drinks will be catered by Glastonbury’s The Beat Hotel and South London natives Brixton Brewery. Once you’re full to the brim, Peckham record shop Rye Wax will also be about organising some of your favourite summer fete games.

With final release tickets priced at just £40 a pop and a day of undeniable entertainment, it would be hard to turn down such an exciting way to kick start your summer.

Tickets are available on Resident Advisor, head to the GALA website for the full line-up
