So – what IS Sounds Familiar Music Quiz?

Sounds Familiar Music Quiz is the biggest, best and most raucous music quiz in the UK.

With over 100 tracks across 8 rounds per quiz, we can guarantee that everyone in the team is included and you don’t have to know the answers to have a good time. From Wham! to Weller, Tina Turner to Tinie Tempah, Katy Perry to Tom Petty, from Bruno to Bowie while the beloved SFMQ Wheel of Forchooon can throw out anything from ‘Quizney’ to ‘I’m No Fool, I Know My Old Skool’. SFMQ has something for everyone.

At the end of the night, crowds are on their feet – and the tables – dancing and belting out the tunes. Sounds Familiar give out prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and last place plus Best Team Name It’s a quiz unlike any other and it’s why people keep coming back to SFMQ over and over again. Don’t take our word for it, check out our TESTIMONIAL page to read reviews from our happy customers.

Hmmm – that sounds awesome…tell me more!

OK, we shall. SFMQ was created by DJ Al Scott who came up with the idea of revolutionising the music round from the usual pub quiz format and turning that section into a full on night out and a raucous party. With a bit of tweaking here and there and with a growing team of comperes, DJs, helpers, photographers/videographers, SFMQ has developed into a full-time business and continues to be one of London’s most popular events on the alternative nightlife scene.

We have multiple weekly residencies throughout London and you can also find us in Liverpool, Brighton, Birmingham venues – as well as in Southend, Wycombe and Dartford Theatres each month, with more launches across the UK to be announced.

Our quizzes change each month and we also create themed events. We are regularly booked for corporate events, work shindigs and festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival and Isle of Wight.

In 2017, Sounds Familiar Music Quiz performed to over 15,000 people at residencies, corporate gigs and festivals. 2018 sees SFMQ opening in even more cities in the UK. Come and see us soon, have a look at our DATES page for where you can find us.
