Win limited edition Download Zippo windproof lighters
Sorry, this competition has closed.
The List, in association with DeVries Global, are giving you the chance to win a limited edition Zippo windproof lighter. These limited edition Zippo windproof lighters are usually only available exclusively to buy at Download Festival, but the history of live music and Zippo go hand-in-hand – literally!
For decades, crowds have raised their lighters to the sky to beseech the rock gods for one last song. Travel back to Woodstock in 1969, as a crowd of thousands raise their candles and lighters in the air to support the young American singer-songwriter Melanie Safka as she struggles to perform in the rain. Years later, the crowd of light spontaneously re-appears as the Doors perform ‘Light My Fire’; by 1974, flame-waving has become such an iconic moment that Bob Dylan and the Band feature a sea of flame on the cover of their live album Before the Flood.
The classic Zippo goes on to grace the cover of countless album covers, including Bob Marley and The Wailers’ seminal Catch a Fire. But it’s not all just about the good looks - Jimi Hendrix famously used a Zippo lighter on the 1968 recording of ‘All Along the Watchtower’, as he reportedly dug the primal, vampy tone is generated.
This July, DeVries have teamed up with Zippo to offer you the chance to win one of these much sought-after lighters, so get your hands on this piece of memorabilia and be a part of rock’n’ roll history.
