Several bands on the tour will create custom lighters featuring their own unique designs. These lighters will only be sold at the Zippo booth at Uproar shows.

The grand prize winner will receive two pit tickets to any Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival show of their choosing and the official Uroar lighter they designed.
