Epic announcements seem to be just rolling in from the inaugural Gala In The Grove Festival, set to take place in Jonestown, Pennsylvania (just 90 miles outside of Philadelphia). Yesterday the festival bequeathed news of its new beach-side stage. While we are still expecting the complete phase two, full artist lineup announcement from Gala, the festival has managed to steadily add quite a few new artists, and multiple set announcements, since its initial lineup launch.
After selling out of tier 1 tickets, Gala In The Grove announced the addition of a Funkadelphia favorite, Teddy Midnight to the lineup. This was in conjunction to news that patrons of the event could now expect multiple sets from Ludge, Newpy Hundo, and Patrick Richards. Well, yesterday Gala gave more light to that news in revealing its beach-side stage. In an already, obviously scenic location, the beach stage at the 2016 festival will offer a place to kick back in the sand on Saturday afternoon to the rhythmic beats of the three aforementioned artists, as well as further newly announced local producer Tygris.
Of course, as we have clearly seen, Gala In The Grove looks to always go big, though. So this was far from the only news released in regards to the festival yesterday. Furthermore, along with Funkadelphia and Deathwaltz Media Group, the festival announced yet another of its many official pre-parties (which will also double as the second official hometown Funkadelphia Showcase). The May 10th pre-party will take place at Silk City right here in Center City, Philadelphia. With a lineup boasting Patrick Richards, Wink, and Funkadelphia artists: Ludge, Mutomb0, and the Agent Zero live band, the night undoubtedly promises a night of infectious grooves. And with tickets just $5 all night for these five brilliantly talented, local artists, things truly do not get much better.
