A Supreme Weekend: Jazz In The South Downs

A combination of friendly atmosphere, idyllic surroundings and great music, Love Supreme festival is hidden in Glynde, a small village half an hour east of Brighton.

Set in the lusciously green South Downs, the festival boasts an eclectic line up of mainly Jazz, Funk and Soul music.

Performances from the likes of disco juggernauts Earth Wind and Fire, 1980’s R&B pioneers Soul 2 Soul and jazz supremo Jamie Cullum quickly overcame any negativity brought on by the changeable weather.

Other stand out sets included the stunning soulful voice of Laura Mvula, funky New York instrumentalists Snarky Puppy and the Grammy Award winning Gregory Porter.

The impressive, star-studded line up was headlined by hip-hop trio De La Soul, who last weekend played Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage. Despite the fact that this Saturday the group were in front of a much smaller audience, the magnitude of their performance remained epic

It’s a testimony to the quality of the festival that even De La were out to impress.
