Rock icon Richie Sambora has been added to the line-up for Download Festival 2014. His performance will feature special guest, Orianthi.
Sambora has played to more than 34 million fans worldwide over the course of a career that now spans over four decades. He is one of the few hard rock musicians to truly transcend genres with collaborators including Cher, LL Cool J and Eric Clapton.
This year will be Richie Sambora’s first visit to Download festival, offering a rare opportunity to watch one of the icons of the genre in action.
Other outstanding acts joining the Download 2014 line-up today include psychedelic rockers Turbowolf, bringing their electrifying yet laid-back blend of punk, metal and funkadelica back to Download for the first time since 2012, and Birmingham post-hardcore mob Cytota.
Among the Donington announcements today are a pair of local acts in Derybshire post-grunge duo Drenge and Nottingham-based Baby Godzilla.
They will be joined by blues rockers The Temperance Movement, progressive metallers Nothing More, Dead City Streets and Goldray.
Download Festival 2014 takes place from June 13-15 and will be headlined by Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park and Aerosmith.
