Preview: Love Supreme Jazz Festival

3 Days of Jazz, Soul, Funk and More.

On the weekend of July 1st-3rd 2016, the Love Supreme Jazz festival will make its annual return to Glynde Place, East Sussex.

This festival, named after the album ‘A Love Supreme’ by the famous jazz musician John Coltrane, launched in 2013 and has had a range of artists perform including Chakha Khan, Van Morrison, Earth, Wind and Fire, Gregory Porter, Hugh Masekela and many more. It encompasses a mix of Soul, Jazz, Funk and other genres. Check out our review of last year’s event here.

This year is set to be even bigger and better with the line-up including well-known and respected artists such as Grace Jones, Burt Bacharach, Kelis, Giles Peterson, Kamasi Washington and many more. As well as these veteran musicians, there are also some upcoming newer talented individuals performing such as Mahalia, Bernhoft, The Milk and Lianne La Havas amongst others.

The event has five different stages spread across the festival site, to ensure you will always be entertained throughout the weekend.

The location is easily accessible as it is a 5 minute walk from Glynde station and there will be an hourly shuttle bus running throughout the weekend to Brighton, which is only a 20 minute drive away.

If you’re a jazz, soul or funk lover- it’s definitely worth looking into buying tickets here. For more info, visit the website
