Love Supreme Jazz Festival will be celebrating its fifth anniversary in 2017. Once again this three-day event will be jam-packed with performances from a diverse cross section of jazz, soul and pop talent. Running from Fri 30 June – Sun 2 July 2nd, this hugely acclaimed festival will once again return to the picturesque surroundings of Glynde Place in East Sussex. “Reaching our milestone fifth year is testament to the growing appeal of jazz and its affiliated genres,” says Love Supreme Director, Ciro Romano: “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.”
The first artist confirmed for next year’s event is ten-time Grammy-winner George Benson. 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. “I’m looking forward to performing at the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in 2017,” he commented. “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!” Benson’s varied career, which now spans over 50 years, has gone from strength to strength and this show at Love Supreme marks his only UK summer festival appearance.
