Returning to Donington for the fourth time, Whitesnake make their Download Festival debut as Very Special Guests joining Def Leppard.

Enjoying a career spanning three decades, David Coverdale & co. have been responsible for hits such as ‘Here I Go Again’ and ‘Is This Love’, and last year released their eleventh studio album which went straight in at Number 5 in the UK charts.

‘In these uncertain times, when it is economically difficult for some people to get to see rock shows in their major cities, then it is the responsibility of the artist to take their music to the people, & that's what Whitesnake intends to do’ – David Coverdale
