“London’s most popular and raucous music based quiz.” Time Out
Sounds Familiar is a party in a pub quiz format. It’s eight discos in one night. Sounds Familiar plays the track and you name the artist and title. It’s that simple. There are no boring questions – SFMQ only plays the best bits. Just listen to the track, have a sing and a dance to it and write down the answers on your sheet. By the end of the quiz everyone is up on the tables dancing and belting out the tunes into their inflatable microphones!
DJ Al is compere, quizmaster and resident DJ. SFMQ give prizes for best team names. The team that comes last wins CDs and the privilege of being crowned the Losers. The whole event is fun from beginning to end. Examples of recent rounds include: Feel The Power Ballad, Does Liking This Record Make Me Uncool?, Indie Disco, I’m No Fool – I Know My Old Skool, Are You Ready To Rock?, I Could Have Danced All Night, Soul Weekender, School Reunion, Live Forever, Mash It Up and many many more. We also have a round called the Mysterious Wheel of Steel. It has 8 rounds on it and wherever the wheel stops that’s the round you get.
Sounds Familiar is the only music quiz to be a regular on the festival scene playing at V Festival, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Latitude, Vintage at Goodwood, Secret Garden Party, the Big Chill, Camden Crawl, Festinho and Bloom.
