Do you know your Rockers from your Hip-hoppers? Well, you will, if you share this online festival style quiz from the Spiegel news site with your students. We've designed a simple worksheet to help your class find out more about German music festivals and their unofficial dress codes, using Speigel's interactive quiz.

Starting with reading for gist, students complete the quiz to get an initial score and some German feedback on how well they can match the pictures of nine festival-goers to a music style.

The worksheet then guides them to go back through the online test to look for more details of each festival, type of music and the clothes that go with it. Answers and a QR code are provided too, and it's a great way to make an authentic quiz more accessible.
