Now in its seventh year, Love Supreme is Europe's biggest outdoor jazz festival and, alongside the previously announced acts, will be presenting the likes of Grammy Award-winning Louie Vega, who will perform with his full Elements of Life band following a Royal Festival Hall performance earlier this year.

Alongside a packed schedule of gigs, the festival will host afterparties, including a Louie Vega DJ set; the Jazz Lounge, which will feature artist Q&As, panels, exclusive album playbacks and film screenings; a number of kids areas including the vintage funfair; early morning salsa classes; the Jazz in the Round stage; the Verdict Bandstand; Bands & Voices cabaret and spoken word stage; late night jam sessions; long table banqueting; secret swimming and much more.
