Artists meet for music summit
Robbie Williams
Robbie Williams is expected to attended the meeting

Robbie Williams and members of Radiohead and Blur are among those expected to meet today to discuss the future of artists' rights.

It will be the first time the newly formed FAC [Featured Artist Coalition] has met to discuss musicians' rights within the music industry.

Kate Nash, David Grey, KT Tunstall, Annie Lennox and Master Shortie are also involved.

The summit takes place at central London venue Heaven today [11 March].

Speaking before the summit in statement, one of the FAC's directors, Blur's Dave Rowntree said: "There has never been a greater need for the collective voice of featured artists, whose music generates 95% of revenue in the industry, to be properly heard."

Rowntree added: "YouTube's row with the PRS is the most recent example of just how fast the music industry is changing."
