Love Supreme Jazz Festival's Stellar Line Up Is Set To Draw Crowds From Sussex & Beyond

In just one week this year's Love Supreme Jazz Festival returns to Glynde Place, East Sussex, for a three-day event jam packed with performances from a diverse cross section of jazz, soul and pop talent.

This year the festival presents performances from Motown legends The Jacksons, who are marking their 50th anniversary with a world tour, the multi-platinum-selling Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, who returns to the festival following her main stage performance in 2014, the Grammy-winning Robert Glasper Experiment, Brit Award-nominated vocalist Nao and Canadian trailblazers Bad Bad Not Good; as well as Corinne Bailey Rae, Christian Scott, Comet Is Coming and many more.

The festival's Jazz Lounge will also return this year offering exclusive screenings of the award-winning John Coltrane documentary "Chasing Trane" and Gregory Porter's"Don't Forget Your Music" as well as several Ella Fitzgerald-themed events to coincide with the centenary of the legendary singer's birth including a Q&A with Mica Paris about her new Ella project.

Set against the backdrop of Glynde Place in East Sussex, Love Supreme has continued to grow in popularity over the last five years thanks to its unique programme.

Brix & The Extricated has – in the words of an old Fall lyric – something of a “track record”. 

Festival 23, the world's only three-day celebration of Discordian counter-culture, took place outside Sheffield in July 2016 and was a huge success, with contributions from comics legend Alan Moore, the KLF's Jimmy Cauty, DJs Greg Wilson and Richard Norris.

Forged out of the ashes of the Brit-pop explosion, Starsailor emerged onto the music scene in the early 2000s, gaining success and spearheading a new wave of English guitar bands.

The new Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts autumn 2017 season brings to the city a rich array of artists, makers, creators and thinkers from both local and international companies and studios, in a season of performance, music, dance, film, visual art, discussion & debate. 

Having spent almost four decades in English football – playing and managing in every professional division – Brighton & Hove Albion's ex-manager Micky Adams' experience of our national game is almost unrivalled.

South East Dance has announced the start of construction at the Circus Street site, signalling the advent of the long awaited The Dance Space.

Brighton Dome is set to host a series of Spectrum live events for the autumn season, showcasing some of Brighton's best emerging talent from across the city, at The Basement, Brighton Youth Centre and Brighton Museum.

It's 1988 and London is partying hard under the spectre of AIDS, the scrutiny of the press and the promise of a summer of love.

It was with great excitement that I headed back to the Brighthelm Centre for Riptide: Returns, the second show from Brighton's new wrestling company. 

Brighton's unique, historic racecourse is the venue for an on-going series of live music events with spectacular views across the south coast, with a line-up boasting Human League, Marc Almond, Hacienda Classical with Groove Armada and Stereo MCs.

It's been thirty-six years since his last album and now Brighton-based singer/songwriter 
Pete Howells returns with his second album, Dead Cat Bounce.

Tom Robinson, the gay musician and long time activist, has performed his song Glad to be Gay with updated lyrics to mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales.

England isn't a half-bad country, right? It's got some pretty beautiful places and some awesome people in it, but like many other parts of the world over the past year or two, it just seems to be getting hit by more and more bad things, and this obviously dominates the headlines.
