Contactmusic team up with lighter manufacturers Zippo in Download ticket giveaway.
Download Festival at Donington Park is one of the UK's most eagerly anticipated rock events so if you want to win a pair of tickets for this year, look no further!
We've partnered with one of the most recognisable brands in the world, Zippo, in a new competition where winners can bag two weekend guests tickets for the 2014 event which this year sees Aerosmith and Linkin Park among headliners. Winners can enjoy a weekend of guest camping and exclusive access to the guest area.
If you already have tickets to Download, there's plenty of other stuff that Zippo have organised to up the fun at this year's event. They've also set up competitions to win side-of-stage access, limited edition Download Windproof Lighters and even to have your own design feature on a Zippo lighter. We have to stress that these extras are not part of our guest ticket package, but they're definitely worth keeping an eye out for nonetheless.
Zippo have become celebrated for their windproof lighters which have had a significant role in music. Waving lighter flames in the air became an encore request originally, and now they are popularly lit up during particularly moving performances. Even if you miss the chance to bag one of these limited edition Zippos, anyone will be able to get the virtual version for free with the Virtual Zippo Lighter app available on Android and iOS devices
Also, make sure you check out the Zippo Encore stage at the festival, which this year features some pretty seminal bands such as The Offspring, Status Quo, Trivium, Twister Sister, The Pretty Reckless and Bad Religion. Certainly not worth missing!
