Some things just go together. Fish and chips. Rum and coke. Metal and good times. Download Festival and Zippo. For the last several years, the well established partnership between Download and Zippo has brought us not only the Zippo Encore (Second) Stage at Download, but also a variety of Download branded Zippo lighters, and 2018 is no exception. This year, in addition to their usual stage and variety of activities at the Zippo area located within the main arena at Download, they’re also taking things digital with the Zippo Lighter app, which is available to download for all Apple and Android phones.
Download and Zippo are very excited to be continuing their partnership in 2018, and just like Download, we here at Rock Sins are also very excited to continue working with Zippo as we have done for several years. Courtesy of our friends at Zippo, we have a pair of Download Festival 2018 limited edition Zippo lighters to give away to two lucky readers. In order to enter the contest and to be in with a chance of winning one, please check out the contest widget below. Each one of the tasks listed will allow you one entry into the contest – so the more tasks you complete, the more entries you get! We will also give an entry to anyone who likes the Rock Sins Facebook Page between now and the end of the contest.
The contest closes on the 1st of June, so you’ve got eight days to enter to have a chance of winning one of these awesome lighters. The Zippo Encore Stage at Download 2018 will be headlined by You Me At Six, Parkway Drive and Rise Against, with special guests Hell Is For Heroes, Babymetal and Alexisonfire.
