Love Supreme Festival


By James Rugg

It’s here, it’s here! And after that horrendously long winter it’s about bloody time too.

The sun has been out long enough now to warrant short shorts and summer dresses and some of us have even managed to attain that much desired radiant lobster-pink glow already. Our thoughts are already turning to the possibility of a summer filled with music, sun block, cool shades and cider.

We dream of a chance to forget about the stresses of work through scarcely-clothed, somewhat inebriated dancing. But where can we fulfil all of these desires in one convenient place? Well, a music festival of course!

With a world filled with notorious festivals ready to drain your wallet faster than an intoxicated casino visit, it is perhaps time to look at the smaller, lesser known options available. For those of you who have an insatiable appetite for all kinds of swanky music – Jazz, Soul, Funk or the Blues – I am happy to present Love Supreme festival.

The Love Supreme Jazz festival is taking place from the fifth to the seventh of July within the grounds of the Elizabethan manor house, Glynde Place, Sussex. In association with Jazz FM, Love Supreme will play host to some of the finest musical talent that the worlds of jazz, funk, soul, blues and fusion have to offer. It is also the first greenfield three-day jazz festival in over 20 years!

The line up has a little something for almost everyone and includes the legendary Bryan Ferry & The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, Jools Holland, and the jazz saxophonist master that is Courtney Pine. Here is a link to the line up thus far: check it out.

Personally, I can’t wait to bop soulfully to the funky Snarky Puppy and relish in the jazz-hip-hop fusion that is Soweto Kinch. And all while basking in the sun’s rays… Hopefully.

Weekend tickets, including camping and booking fee, are £129.60 and can be bought here.
