The big news is that the legendary Bryan Ferry, disco originals Chic feat. Nile Rodgers and the critically acclaimed, Mercury Prize nominated Michael Kiwanuka will all be heading to Love Supreme this summer. And that's not all. We've also have confiirmation of the cutting edge sounds of thrash-jazzers Roller Trio, young Mancunians GoGo Penguin and stunning acapella group Naturally 7.

As part of their set, Bryan Ferry & The Bryan Ferry Orchestra will treat the lucky Love Supreme audience to the UK premiere of their recently released 'The Jazz Age' album, a collection that features swinging re-works of songs made famous by Bryan in Roxy Music and throughout his glittering solo career. 'Virginia Plain', 'Love Is The Drug' and more get the 1920s big band treatment on this revelatory record. Ferry will follow this with a full band set of classic hits. So whether you're a fan of Ferry's music or a cotton club aficionado this is one set you don't want to miss.
