Rock out mere meters away from legendary performances this summer as the iconic lighter brand brings Zippo Sessions to Download Festival! Step away from the mosh pit and experience sets from bands in much more intimate settings than their festival stage performances.
Zippo Sessions will make its European debut at Download UK this year. Introduced in 2016 at Carolina Rebellion in the USA, bands such as KORN, Coheed & Cambria and The Pretty Reckless have previously graced the Zippo Sessions stage to perform acoustic sets of fan favourite songs.

They will then be given a pass for a performance at a secret location in the festival, while supplies last. There will be several Zippo Sessions throughout the weekend, meaning there will be plenty of opportunities to see these money-can’t-buy performances!
