Jazz In The Round, Arena and Bandstand names complete Love Supreme Line-Up

A final flurry of additional performances have been confirmed for this year's fifth edition of Love Supreme Jazz Festival, which runs from 30 June – 2 July in Glynde, East Sussex. Expecting to exceed the 22,000 who attended the greenfield festival in 2016, this year's line-up packs in more opening night action with the Bandstand and Arena firing up early, plus an inaugural festival appearance of Jazz in the Round, the essential monthly Marylebone music showcase hosted by Jazz FM DJs Jez Nelson and Chris Philips. The latter brings together some of the brightest and best of the UK's cutting edge players with the Friday's triple bill including Justin Thurgur Afro Jazztet, Matthew Bourne and Theon Cross (top left), and Saturday late-night live wires Triforce (above right), Randolph Matthews and James Beckwith Trio plus Gearbox Records vinyl session.

The Arena's Friday line-up includes newcomers Jam Experiment, Howes3 and Cara Hammond (above centre), latin-jazz Londoners J-Sonics and Brighton-based Afrobeaters Lakuta. The Bandstand, curated by Eddie Myer of Brighton jazz club The Verdict, shows off a slew of emerging talent across the weekend (listings below), while the Verve Jazz Lounge returns once again offering seated sanctuary for festivalgoers who can watch screenings of documentaries, Gregory Porter – Don't Forget Your Music and Chasing Coltrane, plus a number of Ella Fitzgerald-themed events including Mica Paris talking about her Ella project on Saturday.
