Once again taking place in the enchanting grounds of Glynde Place, a magnificent Elizabethan manor house located on the Sussex Downs, this year’s festival boasts over seventy acts performing across five stages. As well as ecelctic programmes on the Main Stage, the Ronnie Scott’s Big Top, The Arena and The Bandstand, this year also sees the introduction of the Matua Sessions Stage, which will present an array of emerging artists as well as classic album playbacks, talks, exclusive DJ sets and much more. Performing on the Matua stage on the Saturday afternoon are the winners of the popular Discovery Competition, which offers a band or artist the opportunity to perform at the festival. Taking the coveted slot this year are London-based Mimika, a 7-piece ensemble who present a unique blend of Balkan's earthy spirits and exotic grooves.

Festival Director Ciro Romano: “We’ve striven to present as diverse, exciting and ambitious a programme as possible; one that reflects the myriad of brilliant, contrasting forms that jazz has to offer. With chart-topping stars nestled alongside cutting-edge contemporary artists, and one of the most beautiful festival settings in the UK, we’re extremely excited about this year's event and can’t wait for it to start”.

The main stages this year will feature Yamaha grand pianos and instruments thanks to the festival's partnership with Yamaha Music Europe.
