Erykah Badu to headline Love Supreme Jazz Festival 2022

Erykah Badu has been announced as the first headliner for the Love Supreme Jazz Festival 2022.

The Texan neo-soul artist will take the stage in Glynde, East Sussex on Saturday July 2 next year. This will mark his only performance in the UK in 2022.

“We couldn’t be happier to announce Erykah Badu, a true innovator and arguably one of the most exciting performers of her generation, as the first confirmed artist for Love Supreme 2022,” said Ciro Romano, director of the Love Supreme Festival.

“We have many more big name announcements planned over the next few weeks and we look forward to welcoming our Love Supreme family to the South Downs next summer.”

Tickets (Level 1) go on general sale at 9 a.m. this Friday (October 29) – buy yours here. You can also sign up for the official Love Supreme newsletter for more information.

Love Supreme Jazz Festival returns between July 1 and 3, having canceled its 2020 and 2021 editions due to the coronavirus pandemic. Lauryn Hill headlined the event in 2019, with figures including Gladys Knight, Jamie Cullum and Jimmy Cliff also starring.

Meanwhile, Badu recently paid tribute to George Floyd to mark what would have been his 48th birthday. “Thank you for your spirit and your sacrifice,” she said. “So that we can move forward as we should, be where we are meant to be as a people. “

Last month Erykah Badu organized his own Sonos radio station called BADUBOTRON, which will take listeners “out of this world and into its sound orbit”. The channel will broadcast everything from psychedelic funk, retro soul, classic rock, spiritual jazz and experimental hip-hop.
