GALA lines up
After announcing the stage partners last month, GALA reveals the artist joining the party on Bank Holiday Sunday 27th May.
Presenting a carefully-curated mix of breaking acts alongside some of the biggest names in disco and house, GALA’s 2018 line-up salutes many of the birthplaces, innovators and visionaries of modern dance music.
Chicago house legend Derrick Carter dons his disco hat for a very special ‘Derrick Does Disco’ set, alongside cosmic disco pioneer Daniele Baldelli and the Godfather of Ibiza’s Balearic beat, Alfredo. Representing the UK’s place in this ever-unfolding dancefloor story, Norman Jay MBE and Greg Wilson deliver a valuable lesson in UK club history, while esteemed Melodies International co-founder Mafalda, brings her unparalleled collection of modern soul, house and boogie.
Elsewhere, London’s wildest Sunday night party crew Horse Meat Disco return to host ‘The Pleasure Dome’ Stage. Heavily inspired by New York’s golden era of clubbing in the 70s and 80s, the Dome will follow this theme, playing host to Glastonbury’s NYC Downlow / Block9 co-founder Gideön as well as Honey Dijon and Midland.
With GALA landing on Peckham Rye Park for the first time, local luminaries Rhythm Section head-up their own stage. Born in Peckham, but now an international force to be reckoned with, Bradley Zero has curated a bill that includes Mr Scruff, Maurice Fulton, Chaos in the CBD and Z Lovecraft. Continuing the South London thread, GALA teams up with vinyl outlets Rye Wax and YAM Records to host a record fair on site.
