UK music industry group MusicTank will host a debate on download prices next month.

The industry will be asking if the current 79p price is right to create market growth. It will also ask if revenue is being divided fairly between labels, artists and distributors.

The discussion will also look at artist royalties on downloads, asking if they are high enough for the lower distribution costs of the digital age.

"With high-street retailers such as Fopp offering highly desirable CD albums for as little as £3, will the consumer ever be convinced to pay upwards of £8 for the same music, in lower sound quality, without the glossy booklet?" Music Tank asks.

The session begins with a keynote speech from band manager, Gary McClarnan (Sparklestreet Management). Speakers include: Guy Fletcher OBE (Elvis Presley/Ray Charles songwriter, founder of Music Copyright Solutions); Adam Taylor (head of digital at the Ministry Of Sound) and Mark Mulligan (research director and senior analyst at JupiterResearch).

The event takes place on 6 February at Bertorelli in Soho, London and runs between 6.30-9pm. Admission costs £30 (£25 to trade body members). Tickets must be purchased in advance.
