Love Supreme Festival

For the last two years I have gone to Love Supreme Festival in Brighton, and am returning again this summer. Love Supreme has such a welcoming vibe, and its great to be in a crowd surrounded by people with likeminded musical tastes. It’s only a small festival, and is in its fourth year running. I think small festivals are great because:

  1. Less walking time = more time to see bands. You can switch between the stages easily, and can catch a little bit of everything
  2. It is easy to find your friends if you lose them, and to nip back to the campsite
  3. The facilities aren’t too overused (e.g. toilets!)
  4. The tickets are usually cheaper
  5. Smaller crowds – meaning you can get closer to watch the acts you love

This July, Love supreme is running from 1-3 July. The artists I’m particularly excited to see are Jacob Collier, Kamasi Washington, Lianna La Havas, Esperanza Spalding, The Average White Band and Cecile McLorin Salvant.

The bands I enjoyed last year included Chaka Khan, Hiatus Kaiyote, Hugh Masekela, The Bad Plus Joshua Redman and many more. The year before featured Christian McBride, Snarky Puppy, Jamie Cullum, De La Soul, Gregory Porter, Takuya Kuroda and others.

Here’s some photos that I took of both weekends.
