A step-by-step guide to play the game

1

Gather a group of five or more players in front of the Music Festival game. 

2

Ask the players if they can find the instruments and artists on the game board by using the search function. The artist search function (Elvis, Shakira, U2, ...) is to be found on the left hand side of the game board, the instrument (guitar, drum, saxophone, ...) search function on the right hand side. Use this to make the players familiar with the game board. 

3

After exploring the game board, ask the players about their favorite musical style or artist. You can also ask to perform their favorite song of that particular artist. The other players try to guess the artist and the title of the song. If they recognise the song, they can join the performance 

4

Start the same activity again with another player. Discuss the different musical styles and try to come up with new songs and genres.
