The Love Supreme Jazz Festival is a 3 day greenfield jazz festival held in the first weekend of July in the stunning surroundings of Glynde Place in the beautiful South Downs in East Sussex.

It is the first full weekend camping jazz festival in the UK but also welcomes day-trippers and non-camping weekend visitors. The festival is approximately 20 minutes from Brighton and an hour and a half from central London by train or by car.

The festival launched in July 2013 and since then, has hosted artists such as Herbie Hancock, Earth Wind & Fire, George Benson, Nile Rodgers, Van Morrison, Grace Jones, Jamie Cullum, Hugh Masekela, Steve Winwood, George Clinton, Pharaoh Sanders, Gregory Porter, Lauryn Hill, Gladys Knight, Laura Mvula, Lianne La Havas, Bryan Ferry, Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Esperanza Spalding, Melody Gardot, Brad Mehldau, Chaka Khan, Branford Marsalis, Robert Glasper, Snarky Puppy and many others.

The festival was the brainchild of former Universal record executive Ciro Romano: "The idea was to meld the ethos of those great European jazz festivals like North Sea Jazz and Montreux with the culture of the UK camping music festivals with very strong identities like Latitude or Green Man. I felt there was a gap in that environment for something which celebrated jazz, soul and funk and the mark it has on contemporary music and that there might be an audience out there who were not being served properly outside the main urban, indoor jazz festivals”. "It’s not just about jazz though, it’s about high-quality music throughout..."

Love Supreme has 8 stages: The Main Stage which hosts crossover artists, soul legends and massive headliners all in the open air; The Big Top which hosts the cream of international and UK jazz artists; The Arena where you will find the hottest newcomers to the scene and a few leftfield choices to keep you on your toes; The Bandstand showcasing the best in local talent and programmed by New Generation Jazz and our friends at the Verdict; Bands & Voices which hosts cabaret, spoken word and late night live music; Jazz in the Round showcasing some of the best UK acts; Jazz Lounge a lovingly put together programme of film screenings, panel talks and interviews all centred around Jazz, it's influence and beyond; Blue in Green our hidden, woodland club. Welcome the small hours with a finely curated selection of selectors.

DJs and club nights, talks and lectures, panels, classic album playbacks, films, dance classes, kids areas, VIP experiences, glamping, cabaret and spoken word, late night live jam sessions and a fairground... it’s an immersive musical weekend which has quickly built a loyal and dedicated following.
