Rock out at #Zipposessions

Rock out mere meters away from legendary performances this summer as the iconic lighter brand, Zippo, brings #ZippoSessions back to Download.

Following the riotous success of last year’s debut at Download, join Zippo for backstage sets from bands in a secret festival location – it’s the opportunity to see bands much closer than on the main stages!

How do you get access to a #ZippoSessions performance at Download we hear you ask? Visit the Zippo Encore area, home of the lighter than has sparked countless encores, to purchase a Zippo windproof lighter. You’ll then be given a pass for one of the performances (while supplies last) and asked to regroup at the Zippo Encore area at a designated time before heading to the top secret area for a performance you’ll never forget.

Don’t worry – if you pre-ordered a lighter with your Download ticket you won’t be left out – just let us know when you collect your lighter that you’d like to attend Zippo Sessions when you collect your lighter to receive a pass to a performance (while supplies last).

There will be performances throughout the weekend, so don’t worry if you can’t catch one on the first day! Sets have also been perfectly timed not to clash with any of the main stage performances making sure you can make the most of your #DL2019 experience. While you’re at the Zippo Encore area, there’s lots of awesome activities to check out with Spin to Win, a photo booth, design your own Zippo and a great festival location in front of the main stage, it’s the perfect place to spend some downtime between acts.
