The partnership between the Download Festival and Zippo has been very well established for many years now. The very successful relationship continues for another year in 2019, and as they have done for the past several years, Download and Zippo have teamed up on a set of limited edition Download Festival branded Zippo lighters.
Just like Download, we here at Rock Sins are also very excited to be once again teaming up with our friends at Zippo, as we have done so for the past several years to bring our readers a fantastic Download and Zippo themed competition. We have two of the limited edition Download themed, windproof Zippo lighters to give away this year. Two lucky winners will each take one of the lighters away with them, for use at Donington and beyond, however they see fit to use it. The limited edition Download Zippo windproof lighter, worth £30, is usually only available exclusively to buy at the festival, so this is a fantastic opportunity to snap one up early!
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 30th of May, so you’ve got just under a week and a half to get your entries in!
The Zippo Encore Stage this year is headlined by Slayer (in their last EVER UK show), Halestorm and Rob Zombie, with special guests Eagles Of Death Metal, Stone Temple Pilots and Dream Theater. The Zippo Encore Stage will also play host to the likes of Opeth, Delain, Kvelertak, Three Days Grace, Epica, Animals As Leaders, Bad Wolves, Anthrax, Beartooth, State Champs and Dinosaur Pile-Up, plus many more.
