The Love Supreme Festival is a three-day jazz festival held in early July in the green surroundings of Glynde Place in East Sussex. It's a camping festival, but it also welcomes day visitors. The location is about 20 mins away from Brighton and an hour and a half from central London.

The idea of the festival came to the mind of record executive Ciro Romano, and it implied mixing the traditions of major European jazz festivals with the culture of the UK camp fests. The festival launched on a sunny weekend back in July 2013 and since then has hosted artists like Jamie Cullum, Van Morrison, Esperanza Spalding, Bryan Ferry, Chic ft Nile Rogers, and many others.

Love Supreme offers four stages: the Main Stage with headliners with a focus on soul and funk; the Big Top where you can listen to the big names of international and UK jazz; the Arena which hosts young artists who broaden and mend the limits of jazz, soul, and funk; and the Bandstand where the Verdict Jazz Club hosts the best jazz in Brighton and East Sussex.

Besides the stage programme, the visitors enjoy DJ sets and club nights, panel discussion and talks, dance classes, films, kid zones, camping, and fairground. The festival is a three-day immersive musical experience which has quickly built a loyal community.
