The MPG’s high-profile event, Q-Time, returns once again on July 14th, with a panel representing all aspects of the music industry, and chaired of course by BBC 6 Music presenter, Tom Robinson.

The panel for the next event is:

Catherine J Marks (producer/engineer), Laura Kidd (She Makes War, singer, song-writer), Ruth Daniel (cultural producer, activist and social entrepreneur), Ruth Barlow (Head of Live at The Beggars Group), Phyllis Belezos (live agent at ITB).

Those observant readers amongst you will noticed that this event’s panel is all-female. Without wishing to labour the point, we all know that there are several issues which specifically affect women in the music industry and we’d welcome questions for the panel from you all which will spark discussion of those issues on the night.

Please submit them to: mpg_q-time@mpg.org.uk

Q-Time is modelled on BBC’s Question Time, discussion program, and is designed to stimulate debate within the music industry on all topics which affect the lives and careers of producers, artists, managers and record company executives.

The panel will offer their opinions and comments on questions provided by the audience, who will also be encouraged to take part in the discussions. The event will be recorded and made available on the website for MPG Full Members.
