I once heard five UK number One singles, played live over the course of the weekend on main stages and performed by the original artists. High Praises  if you can guess the year and five tracks?

Wouldn't surprise me if we got that in two sets in 2017 with Barry Gibb and Chic. Does Paul McCartney count?  If so we probably got it in one. 

Honestly though, I'd be very surprised if there was only one year where this was true, but I'm sticking with my first answer (the disco)

Already posted this a long time ago. It happened, and I was there for all of them.

Locked in my memory somehow.

I'll let you all guess a bit more for now.

UK number ones by Barry Gibb were non-existent, original artists only.

Chic never had a UK No. One. Paul McCartney only has one UK No. One - Pipes of Peace, 2 weeks, January 1984.

Mull of Kintyre? Would Ebony+Ivory require Stevie on stage?

Mull of Kintyre was Wings.

Collaborations don't count.

One Year, Original Artists, Five Tunes. It happened.

@bamber any chance of you following the flow of the thread ? Once you answer the question you get to ask one ... otherwise it becomes totally chaotic . Thanks :)

Sorry, another soundsystem techie question 🤓

Two of the televised stages do not use a Martin MLA or MLA compact, and one of them doesn't use a Martin rig at all. Which are they?

The Park and West Holtz. I’m guessing on the basis that I have no idea. 

Just seen this. Correct. For a bonus point are you going to guess which one isn't a Martin rig?

I would like to know the answer to this.

I also went "Chic", but "performed by the original artists" is the catch.

Did you see Blondie that year? They had at least a couple.

Stevie Wonder year surely?

This feels like a question that could have so many correct answers.

There's bound to be a couple who played W Holts - it's Bamber :)

I don't think Rodrigo y Gabriela ever had a UK number one. I'll get my coat.
