Good news for all today as the Early Bird Tickets for Love Supreme 2015 were released today at 1pm. Following on from the huge success of the past two years (and impeccable weather), we can certainly expect big things from the festival which will be returning strong for a fourth year.
The festival is the UK’s biggest outdoor jazz festival and will return in July 2015 for three days of world-class music set against the stunning backdrop of Glynde Place in East Sussex. Having attended both of the the previous iterations of the festival, I can vouch that it is one of the best festivals I have ever been to, with a family friendly atmosphere and a feel good friendly atmosphere all around.
Here is my review from 2013 –
Launched in 2013, Love Supreme quickly became one of the summer’s must-see festivals thanks to its spectacular setting, countless rave reviews (“The British jazz world’s Glastonbury” **** The Guardian, “Love Supreme festival is a Woodstock moment for British Jazz” ***** The Independent) and an accessible yet sophisticated mix of jazz, blues, soul, funk, hip hop and r&b. Having enjoyed record attendance figures in 2014, with over 20000 music fans on site over the course of the weekend, the organisers have confirmed that the festival will return next year from July 3rd – 5th and are set to name a string of high profile headliners over the course of the coming months.
Here are some of my favourite artists from Love Supreme 2014 –
With headliners in the first two years including Jools Holland, Gregory Porter, Jamie Cullum and Soul II Soul, this festival is no lightweight by any means, yet carries a price tag significantly lower than most: Early Bird weekend camping tickets are just £110 (usually £135), £99 for non-camping(usually £110) and £50 per day ticket (usually £55).
Even without a confirmed line-up yet, it is worth buying your tickets because Love Supreme is more than the sum of the individual acts, it is an experience (and one for the whole family). With good public transport links to Glydne by road, bus, coach and rail and a great range of food, drink and clothing stalls, Love Supreme should be the first thing that you mark in the new calendar for 2015.
