MPG Q-Time kicks off tonight with BBC 6Music?s Tom Robinson

Q-Time, the MPG’s (Music Producers Guild) new programme of events kicks off in London tonight (Monday 15th) at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden at 7pm.

The Q-Time events programme is designed to offer MPG members the opportunity to get their voices heard and engage with the key issues currently affecting the industry.

Loosely based 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.

Panellists for this evening’s event 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.

Andy Gill – guitarist and songwriter 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).
