The organisers of this year's sixth edition of the Love Supreme Jazz Festival, which runs from 29 June to 1 July, have confirmed the first big name appearing will be jazz-funk-soul supergroup Earth, Wind and Fire who will headline the closing night. Featuring original EWF vocalist Philip Bailey, bassist Verdine White and drummer/percussionist Ralph Johnson, the group will appear as a 10-piece, and will doubtless perform many of their huge hits such as 'September', 'Boogie Wonderland', 'Let's Groove', 'Shining Star', 'After The Love Has Gone' among others.

Festival Director Ciro Romano commented on the booking: "We've been coveting Earth, Wind & Fire since the festival's inception. They're a phenomenal live act with an incredible back catalogue of songs and we know they'll be a massive hit with the Love Supreme audience. Having sold over 100 million records across the course of their career they are also the biggest act we've booked for the festival to date and will provide a fitting finale to this year's event."

The festival enjoyed its most successful year to date in 2017 with 40,000 music fans in attendance across the weekend, the programme featured a winning combination of big soul/funk headliners alongside high calibre jazz names such as Herbie HancockKamasi WashingtonRobert Glasper and the new wave of UK-based talent. More names will be announced next month in Jazzwise who are media partners for the event.
