Love Supreme Festival Announces One-Day Event at The Roundhouse.
Mr Jukes, Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles, Moon Hooch, Elli Ingram and more confirmed for inaugural event in May 2018.
Following the runaway success of this year’s Love Supreme Jazz Festival, which attracted a sell-out audience across the weekend in excess of 35000 to Glynde Place in East Sussex, the organisers have announced the launch of Love Supreme At The Roundhouse, a one-day festival taking place at London’s Roundhouse on Saturday May 5th 2018. The event will feature performances in the main room from Mr Jukes (AKA Bombay Bicycle Club frontman Jack Steadman), multi-Grammy-winning US singer and keyboardist Cory Henry, techno-fuelled jazz outfit Moon Hooch and hotly-tipped neo-soul singer Elli Ingram, as well as two additional stages curated by cutting-edge music blog EZH and barrier-busting contemporary jazz showcase Jazz In The Round. Running from 3pm until late, all areas of The Roundhouse complex will be utilised incorporating talks, screenings, DJ sets and more.
Having launched in 2013 as the UK’s first major greenfield jazz festival, Love Supreme has gone from strength to strength attracting the biggest jazz, soul & funk names from around the world whilst retaining a boutique festival atmosphere. This year saw record crowds witnessing performances from the likes of Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Robert Glasper, Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, Bad Bad Not Good and Kamasi Washington and the festival will return to Glynde Place next summer from June 29th – July 1st.
Love Supreme Director Ciro Romano:
“We’re excited to be bringing the Love Supreme vision to London. The UK jazz scene is thriving at the moment and London in particular continues to be a fantastic hotbed for innovation and creativity within the genre so branching out into the capital was a logical next step for us.”
Pre-sale begins today with general on-sale from Friday October 27th. Tickets start at £27 and are available from http://www.lovesupremefestival.com/tickets.
