10 time GRAMMY winner George Benson has confirmed his only UK summer festival booking... the Love Supreme Jazz Festival 2017

The Love Supreme Jazz Festival will celebrate its fifth anniversary in 2017 and is celebrating in style with the announcement that George Benson has been confirmed to perform on the Main Stage on Sunday 2nd July next year!

One of the jazz world’s most successful artists, Benson cut his teeth working with the likes of Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard before going on to become a chart-topping international star. His varied career, which now spans over 50 years, has gone from strength to strength, while picking up 10 GRAMMY's along the way and this show at Love Supreme marks his only UK summer festival appearance.

Of his performance at Love Supreme 2017, George said “I’m looking forward to performing at the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in 2017. The UK fans are some of the best in the world and every show is a special experience for us all. Come and join the Benson Party!”

Love Supreme Director Ciro Romano added "Reaching our milestone fifth year is testament to the growing appeal of jazz and its affiliated genres. Our aim continues to be to program a diverse, multifaceted jazz festival that appeals across the generations and we’re working hard to secure our most exciting line-up to date for 2017."

With a three-day event jam packed with performances from a diverse cross section of jazz, soul and pop talent, Love Supreme 2017 will run from June 30th – July 2nd and the acclaimed festival will once again return to the picturesque surroundings of Glynde Place in East Sussex.
