Celebrating its milestone 10th anniversary, the three-day event will feature a host of stars from across the worlds of jazz, soul, R&B and pop including pioneering bassist and vocalist Thundercat, gospel-soul trio Gabriels, multi-million-selling, Grammy-winning American soul group Shalamar whose timeless hit songs include “I Can Make You Feel Good,” “A Night To Remember” and “There It Is,” bassist, producer, bandleader and close Miles Davis collaborator Marcus Miller, soul queen Candi Staton, who will perform at the festival as part of her last ever run of UK shows, the father of Ethiopian jazz Mulatu Astatke, internationally acclaimed Blue Note alto saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins, and distinctive UK neo-soul singer-songwriter Pip Millett.
Also featuring a selection of this year’s breakthrough singers – including Obongjayar, Mica Miller, August Charles and Cherise – the 2023 line-up is set to be the festival’s biggest and best to date. Headliners will be announced in early 2023.

It’s a real honor to have been invited back and to have the opportunity to perform alongside all of these incredible artists. I can’t wait to reunite with my wonderful UK fans to celebrate 10 years of Love Supreme!”
