With this year's annual event having drawn its biggest audience to-date, with over 35,000 people attending over the weekend beginning 30 June 2017, the organisers of Love Supreme Jazz Festival are presenting a special one-day mini-fest at the iconic Roundhouse venue in Chalk Farm, London on 5 May 2018. The event will take over every area of the venue – which includes its large multi-level foyer space, the Studio Theatre, as well as the 3,000 capacity main live room – while hosting a wide variety of forward-looking acts including multi-Grammy-winning US singer and keyboard sensation Cory Henry (pictured) and his band The Funk Apostles, jazz-step trio Moon Hooch and neo-soul artists Mr Jukes and singer Elli Ingram. Two additional stages, one programmed by music website EZH will feature beat-focused newcomers Tenderlonious and Soccer 96, among others, while Jazz In The Round – one of the huge successes of the 2017 Love Supreme programme – will also present its own cutting edge line-up, to be announced soon.

Love Supreme festival director Ciro Romano commented: "We're excited to be bringing the Love Supreme vision to London. The UK jazz scene is thriving at the moment and London in particular continues to be a fantastic hotbed for innovation and creativity within the genre, so branching out into the capital was a logical next step for us."
