Love Supreme is Europe's largest outdoor jazz festival, promising a mellow weekend of silky jazz, soul and R&B, set in the bucolic hills of the South Downs. Expect a lineup of jazz legends alongside exciting newcomers, and sleep in the world's friendliest festival campsite.
Love Supreme is a three-day festival with an infectious, languid charm catering to jazz lovers and the jazz-adjacent since 2013. A ticket here guarantees you'll see artists on your bucket list, as previous years have seen the likes of Sister Sledge, Tom Misch, Gregory Porter, and Erykah Baddu perform. This year's lineup, including Little Simz, Greentea Peng and Thundercat, is guaranteed to deliver.
The performances here are incredibly broad, exciting and often dance-worthy interpretations of jazz. And although the lineup of world-class headliners draws you in, a highlight of the weekend is often the unplanned performances you encounter at the lesser-known spots. With stages located relatively close to each other, it's easy to stroll from one saxophone solo to another, drinking several El Bandarra spritzes en route.
The festival is staged in the grounds of the beautiful Tudor manor Glynde Place, set in the rolling South Downs near Lewes in East Sussex. It's around 20 minutes from Brighton and just over an hour from central London by train or car. Although 2022 saw a record-breaking number of attendees, it is a moderately-sized festival. You can travel between stages or pop back to the campsite for an outfit change without covering marathon distances. The campsite itself is one of the friendliest you'll encounter at a music festival, filled with harmony and community, as fellow campers share cooking equipment, sausages and loo roll.
Beyond the music, there is a hive of wellness activities scheduled throughout the weekend, including yoga, secret swimming, and organised hill walks across the South Downs. Good grub is also on offer here, including a temporary transplant of Robin Gill's much-loved Darby’s, imagined here as a convivial restaurant with a long feasting table. Equally, if you don't bag a spot at the table (which has a habit of selling out) there's a throng of food stalls to line your stomach, from paella and tacos to toasties and curries.
Take a ride on the Ferris wheel at sunset for soothing views of the South Downs hills.
Full lineup here.
