Since its inception in 2013, the Love Supreme Jazz Festival has established itself as one of the most unique, varied and innovative musical events in the UK. It returns to Glynde Place in East Sussex this July with a truly world-class programme that boasts some of the leading lights in contemporary jazz, soul, pop and r&b.

This year taking place from July 1st – 3rd, the festival has lined-up a star-studded selection of names to perform across the weekend including the iconic Grace Jones, six-time Grammy-winning songwriter Burt Bacharach, million-selling Dutch sensation Caro Emerald, the UK’s foremost neo-soul singer Lianne La Havas (‘One of the most stunning voices of her generation’ The Sun), pioneering DJ and broadcaster Gilles Peterson, and the charismatic, multi-award-winning Kelis.

Burt Bacharach told us: “I’m thrilled to be returning to the UK this summer and performing at the Love Supreme Festival. I’ve heard great things about the festival and I’m looking forward to sharing my music in this beautiful setting with the stunning backdrop of Glynde Place.”

The festival once again affirms its jazz credentials with shows from a cross section of the very best talent on offer from across the genre including Kamasi Washington, Melody Gardot, Cecile McLorin Salvant, The Stanley Clarke Band, Ibrahim Maalouf and the newly formed supergroup Scofield, Mehldau, Guiliana. The group, a UK exclusive for Love Supreme, features jazz stars John Scofield, Brad Mehldau and Mark Guiliana (drummer on David Bowie’s Blackstar).

Hailed as “the jazz answer to Glastonbury” (The Telegraph *****), Love Supreme 2016 will also shine a light on the diverse array of homegrown talent the UK has to offer including the likes of rising star multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, described by Quincy Jones as “one of my favourite young artists on the planet – absolutely mind-blowing”, hotly-tipped Blue Note trio GoGo Penguin, Average White Band, acclaimed vocalists Liane Carroll and Anthony Strong, Beats and Pieces Big Band, The Correspondents, Amy Winehouse collaborator Femi Temowo with Engines Orchestra, Native Dancer, Partikel’s String Theory Quartet, Trope, the genre-bending Swindle, and MOBO Award-winning duo Binker & Moses.

With more artists to be announced in due course, the Love Supreme Jazz Festival will present over 50 performances across the weekend.
