22 names revealed for Love Supreme Festival 2017

Gregory Porter will appear for the third time

Gregory Porter, Robert Glasper and The Jacksons are among those performing

Now in its fifth year, Love Supreme is the UK’s only greenfield jazz festival - celebrating the very best live jazz, soul and R&B at Glynde Place, East Sussex from 30th June 2017 to 1st July 2017.

George Benson and Herbie Hancock were announced just before Christmas, and now more names have been confirmed including Motown legends The Jacksons (marking their 50th anniversary with a world tour), the multi-platinum-selling Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, who returns to the festival following her main stage performance in 2014, the Grammy-winning Robert Glasper Experiment, Brit Award-nominated vocalist Nao and New Orleans’ giants Hot 8 Brass Band.

R&B stalwart Lee Fields and the Expressions will appear, American blues group St. Paul and The Broken Bones, and US vocalist Charenée Wade will bring her tribute to Brian Jackson and Gil Scott-Heron.

As always, there are a number of cutting edge jazz acts from around the globe, like Canadian trailblazers Bad Bad Not Good, fiery US trumpeter Christian Scott, German pianist Michael Wollny, genre-bending Frenchman Makaya McCraven and New Zealand soul star Jordan Rakei.

The UK is well represented this year by artists including jazz-funk duo Yussef Kamaal, Clare Teal, Mammal Hands, Ashley Henry + RE-Ensemble, and Jazz FM Award-winning saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings who appears in three different bands - Shabaka & the Ancestors, Sons of Kemet and the Mercury-nominated Comet is Coming.
 
Tickets are on sale HERE including camping, glamping and day tickets, Club Supreme (6 tickets for the price of 5) and Love Supremium – the luxury package.
