EUROPE'S largest outdoor jazz festival returns to the Sussex countryside in just three weeks time.

International stars such as Tom Misch, Sister Sledge and Lianne La Havas will play at Love Supreme festival near Lewes from July 1 to 3.

Music lovers will flock to the fields for the three-day special in Glynde Place, which has become a mecca for all things groovy, despite it being just nine years since the festival began.

Swapping classic 1980s warehouse parties for the picturesque countryside, former pirate radio star Norman Jay will bless the fields with unmatched head-bobbing anthems, while funk sensation Frank Moody will be sure to draw a few flared trousers to the pastures.

Newer acts are aplenty too, with the likes of Emma-Jean Thackray and Soccer96 providing a groovy calmness to chill out with, while enjoying a cool pint in the sun – fingers crossed.

Soul sensation Gregory Porter has just been added to the line-up, ready to fill people's ears with the sweet baritone vocals for which he has become renowned.

But it is the seventies that we are most looking forward to, right?

Funk icons Sister Sledge grace the stage on Sunday, and really, there is no introduction needed.

But it is not just the tunes that make Love Supreme what it is – festivals, particularly this one, have come a long way since Sister Sledge made their debut.

Love Supreme offers yoga and wellness classes, particularly useful for those who get a bit carried away the previous night perhaps, and even an on-site record shop, courtesy of Rough Trade.

And if all that is not enough and you just need to get down non-stop, then the after-dark woodland party is where you need to be. 

This really is not one to miss.

Tickets for Love Supreme are available via their website.
