The BIG Festival Quiz  – 50 Questions & Answers

I wanted to put together a 50-question festival quiz. If, like me, you’ve been joining a lot of quizzes over the last few weeks, and not knowing any of the answers, then this could be the quiz for you. 

Festival trivia lovers unite!

Whether you go to every festival you can, or you’ve marked up a few, and just remember the good times. Festival fans have got it rough this year, there aren’t many festivals still happening in 2020

Let’s keep our love for festivals alive though, with these festival questions. Get your team together and make it a festival night. I mean, we’ve got a long summer ahead! 

There are five rounds to this festival themed quiz:
