Headliners

Whitesnake

Whitesnake appearing at this event

Formed by former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale in 1978, Whitesnake remains very much a Coverdale-led project. The band achieved considerable commercial success with several platinum albums and a No 1 hit single Here I Go Again, the highest charting of several top 10 hits during the 80s. After a hiatus while Coverdale worked on other projects, Whitesnake re-emerged from hibernation in 1997 with a new line-up and yet more hit albums. Today Coverdale remains one of the top rock vocalists, guaranteed to pack stadiums across the world.
