Snarky Puppy, Jamie Cullum and Gladys Knight for 2019 Love Supreme Jazz Festival

Print

The first artists have been revealed for next year's Love Supreme Jazz Festival, which runs from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 July.

These include top-selling British jazz piano/vocal star Jamie Cullum, who returns for the first time since his barnstorming 2014 headline slot on the mainstage. Also returning to Glynde will be multi-Grammy Award-winning fusion-funk band Snarky Puppy, who are expected to release a new album in 2019 and whose last UK tour saw them sell-out the 5,000 capacity O2 Academy in Brixton, London. A sizeable name is also in the frame for the festival's 'jazz legend' spot, which has been so successfully occupied by the likes of Herbie Hancock and Pharoah Sanders, in recent years and who will be revealed in the coming months.

And soul legend Gladys Knight is the first of many big name soul and funk artists to be announced, and who will perform on the main stage. The 2018 festival was its most successful to date with 45,000 people in attendance across the weekend. Jazzwise is media partner for the festival.
