The new Love Supreme Jazz Festival will take place at Glynde Place, East Sussex.
This new, three day green-field festival will take place on 5 - 7 July 2013 and is created in partnership by Neapolitan Music, Jazz FM and Ingenious Media’s Entertainment VCT 1 and 2.
Serious - producers of the London Jazz Festival and this summer’s BT River of Music – have been appointed as programme consultants.
The first artist for the line up will be announced before the end of the year. The music will blend jazz artists, crossover jazz musicians, and artists from the worlds of soul, blues and funk.
Richard Wheatley, chief executive of Jazz FM, said: “Jazz FM is delighted to be supporting the UK’s first ever green-field Jazz Festival, we are confident that it will be a warmly welcomed newcomer to the UK’s great Festival scene.
“We are all delighted to be working with the highly experienced team at Serious, whose impressive track-record in programming jazz events will help us achieve our ambition that Love Supreme becomes known as one of Europe’s leading jazz festivals.”
