Love Supreme is a 3 day greenfield jazz festival held in the first weekend of July in the stunning surroundings of Glynde Place, East Sussex.
Love Supreme is one of Europe's finest open air jazz festivals, showcasing an eclectic variety of top quality acts across multiple stages.
Love Supreme is the only weekend camping jazz festival in the UK, offering the full festival experience whilst also welcoming day-trippers and non-camping weekend visitors.
The festival launched in a sun drenched weekend in July 2013 and has hosted artists such as Van Morrison, Chic ft Nile Rogers, Bryan Ferry, Jamie Cullum, Bryan Ferry, Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, Marcus Miller, Hugh Masekela, Esperanza Spalding, Chaka Khan, Branford Marsalis, Melody Gardot, Robert Glasper, Jools Holland, Snarky Puppy, Earth Wind and Fire, Courtney Pine and many more.
The festival was the brain child of former record executive Ciro Romano:
“The idea was to meld those great European jazz festivals like North Sea Jazz, London Jazz Festival and Montreux with the culture of the UK camping music festivals like Latitude, Bestival or Green Man all of which I love.
I felt there was a gap in the market for something which celebrated jazz, soul, funk and the mark it has on contemporary music and that there might be an audience out there who wanted more than chart fodder”.
There’s also DJs and club nights, talks and lectures, panels, classic album playbacks, films, dance classes, kids areas, VIP experiences, camping, and fairground… it’s an immersive musical weekend which has quickly built a loyal and dedicated following.
Love Supreme was co-founded by Jazz FM with support from Ingenious, Serious, Air PR, Universal Music, Peppermint, Larmac Live, Event, and Loud Sound.
The festival is roughly 20 minutes from Brighton and an hour and a half from central London by train or by car.
