The festival made an accompanying statement with the announcement, saying: ‘Despite 2019’s edition selling out several months in advance, we made a conscious decision not to increase capacity on site for next summer. Instead we felt it more fitting - given the DNA of GALA - to extend our time in the park’.

All concession stands will also be sourced from the local South London food scene.

Check out the full lineup below.
