The MPG (Music Producers Guild) is launching a new programme of events entitled Q-Time, which will offer its members the chance to get their voices heard and engage with the key issues affecting the industry.
Based loosely on the format of BBC’s Question Time, the Q-Time series of events will be hosted by BBC 6Music presenter, recording artist and songwriter Tom Robinson. The first MPG Q-Time event is set to take place at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden on October 15th at 7pm.
Panelists for the evening will include:
Martin Mills - chairman of The Beggars Group, the most successful independent record company in the UK, incorporating 4AD (Bon Iver, Cocteau Twins, Pixies) and XL Recordings (Adele, The XX, Jack White, Bobby Womack, Sigur Ros).
Geoff Taylor - CEO of the BPI (British Phonographic Institute), the trade body that represents the major UK record labels.Article continues below
Andy Gill - guitarist and song-writer from Gang Of Four, and acclaimed record producer (Killing Joke, Red Hot Chlli Peppers, The Futureheads, Michael Hutchence, The Young Knives).
Hal Ritson - multi-instrumentalist record producer and musical director (Dizzee Rascal, Example, The Young Punx, Yasmin).
