After celebrating its 10th anniversary edition last year, Love supreme festival is set to return to Glynde Place in East Sussex with a sensational line-up of stars from across the jazz, funk, and R&B spectrum.

A selection of the world's most revered contemporary jazz acts will feature across the weekend including multi-award-winning US vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, visionary multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello, who recently received a string of rave reviews for her Blue Note Records debut The Omnichord Real Book, Mercury-nominated Scottish pianist and Jazz FM Instrumentalist of the Year Fergus McCreadie, Japanese pianist Hiromi with her Sonicwonder project, Blue Note drummer Johnathan Blake, the 8-time Grammy-winning US bassist Christian McBride, and "fusion's greatest drummer" Billy Cobham, who will perform at Love Supreme shortly after celebrating his 80th birthday.
