Zippo Encore is teaming with the 15th annual Voodoo Music + Arts Experience to bring limited edition custom Voodoo lighters to the 3-day Halloween weekend festival (Nov. 1-3) in New Orleans. The 2013 Voodoo Music + Arts Experience features a bill led by performances from Pearl Jam, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Calvin Harris and Preservation Hall Jazz Band on Friday; Saturday's highlights include Nine Inch Nails, Paramore, Afrojack and Big Gigantic; Sunday's lineup includes The Cure, Kid Rock, Bassnectar, Beats Antique and Matt & Kim.

Throughout the festival weekend, Zippo Encore's pop-up retail shop at Voodoo will feature daily giveaways with a "spin it to win it" game as well as an onsite lighter design contest. Lighters for sale at the booth will include the limited edition Voodoo Music + Arts Experience lighter created as part of the Zippo Encore Custom Series Program.

To participate in the lighter design contest, attendees can create their hand-drawn designs at the festival booth. The best design of the 3-day weekend—as chosen by festival-goers who visit the booth—will win a Zippo Encore Schecter Guitar.

In addition, to celebrate their new partnership with Voodoo, Zippo Encore is giving one set of 3-day Voodoo passes via the Zippo Encore Facebook page ( starting Monday, October 14 and continuing through Wednesday, October 23.

The 15th anniversary Voodoo celebration marks the debut of City Park's Festival Grounds, a new permanent home for Voodoo. Home to Voodoo since its 1999 debut—with the exception of the 2005 festival, which was displaced by the city's hurricane damage—New Orleans' 1,300-acre City Park is the region's principal recreation site, and attracts over seven million visitors each year.
