Whitesnake self-confirm Download festival appearance

February 11th, 2009

Whitesnake

Since the somewhat meagre official line-up announcement on Monday, we’ve been waiting for the trickle of self-confirmations for this year’s Download festival to start coming in – the latest is that of hard-rockers Whitesnake.

The band has announced over on their official website that they’re going to be playing the Donington metal festival on June 14 – that’s the Sunday, in case you were wondering. We’re hoping this will add weight to the likelihood of a classic rock closure to the festival – ZZ Top and Def Leppard, anyone?
