Preview: Love Supreme 2016 - An Introduction

Earlier this month, the line up for the 4th iteration of Love Supreme Festival was announced, and following the lead from previous years it was far from disappointing.


The Line Up


Opening the bidding with Burt Bacharach, Caro Emerald, Lianne La Havas, Grace Jones, Average White Band, Kelis, Giles Peterson and more, there is plenty already to entice you to buy your tickets for this weekend of jazz, soul, funk, blues and more. Set in front of the beautiful backdrop of Glynde Place, if you’ve not visited the area before it will give you an nice overview of the Sussex countryside in summertime.

Love Supreme 2016 Line Up Announcement


Targeted at people with older, slightly more diverse music tastes or those with young children looking for a festival that will be free of hypodermic needles and acres of muddy fields to traverse in adverse weather, Love Supreme has always been the kind of festival that you can bring your whole family too, from grandparents to toddlers, and everybody is sure to have a good time.

Love Supreme Festival - Better Every Year

Each year the festival has added to its offering, without ever overcrowding the site and taking away from one of its greatest virtues – it’s compact size. With enough empty space to avoid any horrible noise bleeding between the stages, wherever you are – the big top, the arena, the main stage (outdoors) or the bandstand, the rest of the festival will not be encroaching on you, but will only be a couple of minutes walk away.

The food stalls keep the site aromatic from breakfast til the early hours of the morning, with a wide range of different cultures’ foods on offer – long gone are the days when all that festivals had to offer was a greasy burger and chips and an expensive bar serving cheap beer for central London prices.
