Joining a line-up that already boasts the likes of Ms. Lauryn Hill, Gladys Knight, Jamie Cullum, Snarky Puppy, Chick Corea and Kamaal Williams will be some of the standout artists from the UK scene as well as a selection of talent from across the international jazz and soul spectrum.

Now in its seventh year, Love Supreme is Europe's biggest outdoor jazz festival and, alongside the previously announced acts, will be presenting the likes of Grammy Award-winning Louie Vega, who will perform with his full Elements of Life band following a Royal Festival Hall performance earlier this year.

The festival will also once again showcase a strong contingent of UK acts including the Mercury Prize nominated Gogo Penguin, BBC Sound of 2019 and Brits critics' choice nominee Mahalia, iconic acid-jazz group Brand New Heavies, multi-instrumentalist Tenderlonius, spiritual jazz group Maisha, Ezra Collective keyboardist Joe Armon-Jones, critically acclaimed vibraphonist Orphy Robinson, who will recreate Van Morrison's seminal 'Astral Weeks' album, Sons of Kemet tuba don Theon Cross and the fast-emerging London-based groups Steam Down and SEED Ensemble. 


Alongside a packed schedule of gigs, the festival will host afterparties, including a Louie Vega DJ set; the Jazz Lounge, which will feature artist Q&As, panels, exclusive album playbacks and film screenings; a number of kids areas including the vintage funfair; early morning salsa classes; the Jazz in the Round stage; the Verdict Bandstand; Bands & Voices cabaret and spoken word stage; late night jam sessions; long table banqueting; secret swimming and much more.
