The Love Supreme Jazz Festival, the UK’s largest outdoor jazz festival, is gearing up for its return to the scenic Glynde Place in East Sussex this July with an impressive lineup. The recent announcement introduces a diverse array of talents to the festival’s roster.

Leading the Saturday night is Olivia Dean, a breakout star of 2024, renowned for her Mercury-nominated debut album and three Brit Award nominations, including Artist of the Year. Sharing the stage is the legendary 10-time Grammy-winning Chaka Khan, celebrating an impressive 50-year milestone in music during the Sunday night headline.

Joining the festival’s eclectic mix are Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Dionne Warwick, seminal acid jazz group Galliano, South London singer-songwriter Joel Culpepper, and the boundary-pushing drummer Roni Kaspi from Avishai Cohen’s band. The lineup further boasts Alicia Olatuja and Michael Olatuja’s afrobeat-inflected duo Olatuja, Tunisian singer and oud master Dhafer Youssef, UK pianist Andrew McCormack featuring Kyle Eastwood, soulful British singer Alice Russell, fiery US saxophonist James Brandon Lewis, and the genre-spanning Irish five-piece Bricknasty, among others.

This stellar addition complements an already impressive array of contemporary jazz acts, featuring multi-award-winning US vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, multi-instrumentalist Meshell Ndegeocello, Mercury-nominated Scottish pianist Fergus McCreadie, Japanese pianist Hiromi, Grammy-winning US bassist Christian McBride, and the iconic drummer Billy Cobham performing his Time Machine project on the heels of his 80th birthday celebration.

The Love Supreme Jazz Festival continues its tradition of presenting a diverse and influential selection of artists, promising an enriching experience.

Additional offerings this year will include a wellness and yoga area, a host of activities aimed at children, the Supremium area, which will offer a range of premium benefits plus the opportunity to watch exclusive artist performances, and the Jazz Lounge, which will present a range of artist interviews, talks, panel discussions, breakfast news reviews and film screenings. The festival will also see the return of an expanded Bands & Voices area, which presents cabaret, spoken word and swing dance lessons, and nestled away in the woods the Blue In Green area presents live music and DJs late into the night.

The Love Supreme Jazz Festival returns to Glynde Place in East Sussex from Friday July 5th to Sunday July 7th 2024. More acts will be announced in due course.
