Fast becoming one of the must-see live music events of the year, the Love Supreme Jazz Festival will present an array of international stars when it returns to Glynde Place this summer.

Described by The Guardian as “the British jazz world’s Glastonbury” and by The Independent as “a Woodstock moment for British Jazz”, the acclaimed three-day event is back for a second year.

It delivers a world-class programme that boasts the likes of multi-million-selling Grammy and Golden Globe winner Jamie Cullum and soul star and double Brit Award nominee Laura Mvula.

There will also be a special 25th anniversary show from legendary R&B outfit Soul II Soul, featuring original vocalist Caron Wheeler, one of the most celebrated UK jazz musicians of all time Courtney Pine, and arguably the most soulful performer to have emerged in recent years, Grammy-winning Gregory Porter.

Set against the stunning backdrop of Glynde Place in East Sussex, Jazz FM’s Love Supreme is the UK’s only major green field jazz festival and presents a broad spectrum of music rooted in and influenced by jazz and soul.

Taking place over the weekend of the July 4, 5 and 6, the festival’s line-up will also include singer/songwriter Curtis Stigers, superstar bassist Christian McBride, inimitable US vocalist Jose James, the Grammy-winning instrumental fusion band Snarky Puppy, one of the most evocative bass players of the modern era Dave Holland, captivating Brighton-based soul singer Alice Russell, experimental post-jazz from Seb Rochford’s Polar Bear, who will perform music from their hotly-tipped new album, and the visionary Blue Note bassist Derrick Hodge.

The festival will also feature an eclectic mix of homegrown bands and artists, including accomplished young drummer Ollie Howell and captivating trumpet starlet Laura Jurd.

Additional artists will be announced in due course.
