Quiz Olympiad 2016 - Pop Music Specialist Quiz (50 Questions)
The 2016 Quiz Olympiad had 12 Specialist Subject quizzes - 6 x High Brow (HB) and 6 x Populist (P). Players could only take part in a maximum of 6 subjects.
The quizzes are in two halves, each of 25 questions.
This quiz includes Commercial (charts-based) popular music from 1950 onwards, performers, writers, producers, albums, record labels, notable recording studios, instruments, historic venues, concerts and festivals. This will include, for example, African and Asian pop but not jazz or stage musicals (for which see Performing Arts).
Please note that Paper 2 originally had tracks with each questions that, due to licencing restrictions, cannot be sold online. So, the quiz has been adapted so hearing the tracks is not necessary.
