Ferocious dance-ready melodies, high-octane energy and eccentric DJ sets: the festival made its return to Peckham Rye and they did not disappoint.
It’s been well over a year since we’ve been able to enjoy the absolute scenes of a festival, and the was no better way to welcome ourselves back than at Peckham Rye’s GALA Festival. Whether it was the thumping basslines from Willow’s eccentric set or Jayda G’s enthralling performance, GALA Festival set the expectations high for any other festival and it’s going to be hard to top.
While the weather might not have been the best, revelers were finally able to enjoy outdoor music, and in typical British fashion, no amount of stormy weather stopped the public from embracing everything the festival had to offer.
Kickstarting the 3-day festival with the likes of Poppy Ajudha and Moxie, revellers were treated to remarkable performances that instantly got the vibe going. As heavy techno-inspired beats screamed through the pumping sound system, we were instantly taken to main room of the club, where boundless energy ripped throughout.
As the intense spirts continued into the weekend, the likes of Kornél Kovács and Danielle took hold of the crowds, as an array of festival-ready dancers took the stage and propelled the energy to new heights. With CC:DISCO!, House Meat Disco and Eris Drew bringing the festival to a close on the Sunday, we couldn’t have asked for a better way to end our eccentric weekend in south, and all we could wish for was just another day.
