Looking to flip the current script, GALA Fete is a brand new and carefully curated gathering, that is set to play out in the beautiful Brockwell Park in Brixton, London, on May 29th. Billing itself as a Fete of independent music, food and drink, GALA looks to collate some of South London’s best bits across music food and drink for a good old-fashioned knees up. Having already had an incredible response in terms of ticket sales, GALA is set to be the most intimate and exciting event in the capital this spring.
Rather than faceless mass market maximalism, GALA is a cultural melting pot that is about making friends, discovering new foods, drinks, beats and live performers in a laid back setting. As such, it is turning the classic village fete on its head, will offer lots of grown up fun and games (tug of war & peace, doughnut shy, other Fete games) three different stages, some top chefs and expert local breweries.
To ensure GALA crescendo’s perfectly into an all out party, you can expect sun kissed sounds from dub, trip hop and blissed out beat making legend Nightmares on Wax, as well as the legendary Norman Jay who has a bottomless bag of funk, soul and more. Disco dazzlers Crazy P, Australian Tornado Wallace and Rayko also complete the headline acts and give you an idea of the sort of classy sounds that will be on offer. Joining them will be carefully chosen club partners such as Red Light Disco, The South London Soul Train, Stevie Wonderland, Audio Asylum, Nixwax, Global Rythms, Gin & Juice, TheseDays, Love Glove, ByDay ByNight and DSKO.
All GALA’s restaurant partners have been briefed to create dishes that are completely unique, seasonal and appropriate for the day (grab and go) Dishes to be fully announced prior to event. Expect Kricket – Indian small plates and officially London’s “Best Place to Eat”, plus award winning pizza from Made Of Dough, Caribbean beach shack food, with travel inspired flavours from The Rum Kitchen and seasonal and inventive food from the heart of Brixton from Salon.
In order to fuel the days activities there will be some mouth watering drink partners in the form of Aperol Spritz (the world famous Aperitif will be served all day from the Aperol Spritz bar) brews from Northumberland’s Wylam Brewery, who are purveyors of real cask ale and are behind Jake’s Head IPA (voted Britain’s best beer 2015) and also Brixton Brewery, a top independent brewery making the kind of gutsy beers that make perfect sense in such local settings.
