Preview: Lost and Found Festival is essential because...

A 'Malta Teaser' of Annie Mac's Lost and Found festival.

Last November, when summer seemed like another lifetime away Annie Mac (esteemed Radio 1 host, world-class dance DJ and all round cool cucumber), announced she would be hosting her very first three-day-festival over in one of Europe's southernmost states in the early blooms of April. Fast forward Christmas dins and NYE celebrations and it's now egg-xactly seven weeks until the Easter Weekend extravaganza.

So here is a 'Malta Teaser' about why you need to be around for Lost and Found...


1.Expect boat parties, beach parties, night time open air raves and plenty of AMP surprises!” Ms Mac exclaims. The project has been a lingering decade in the making, with helping hands from the likes of Sound Channel, Drop The Mustard, Metropolis and The Warehouse Project. Malta's Café del Mar will host daytime merriments with picturesque sea views whereas the sleek Numero Uno with its magic, al fresco allure is another idyllic choice for the sun-drenched shenanigans. Lost and Found also promises to take party-goers all aboard the Mediterranean Sea for a rave on the waves; however details of the boat parties are still yet to be released. (Psst, hurry up about this please, Annie)


2. An influential promoter, bmfl to dances' hottest talents and a world renowned disk jockey in her own right, Annie Mac was bound to flaunt a line-up that reads like a who's-who of the music scene right now. Jam-packed with house heavyweights, revellers flying out to the Malta hideaway will be swapping Easter Eggs for Eats Everything and DJ EZ and spring showers for Skream and Shadow Child. Feast your eyes on the tasty roster below (more TBA);

“Having attended festivals all my life, I did not enter into this project lightly. We've visited Malta, toured the event spaces and hotels and all worked together to curate what I think is an incredible line-up.” - Annie Mac



3. Speaking of visiting venues, it is the Mediterranean metropolis of Malta that Annie Mac has chosen for her festival haven. She says of the location, “After visiting the island it was unequivocal it should be the home of our AMP festival; it's extremely beautiful and the people there are so warm and welcoming. It's going to be a very special weekend.” Lost and Found will swell between St Paul's Bay on the island's north shore and the rapture-like surroundings of the Ta' Qali National Park near Rabat so clubbers can party from dusk till dawn (and till dusk again), on land or at sea, without hefty treks back to hotels and accommodation. Throw in some incredible scenery and baking heat and hey presto, a dance music destination of dreams.


Whether you will be (as Annie Mac says herself) raving or behaving, the event extension of the successful Annie Mac Presents series GUARANTEES a stoking showcase across a three-day exploration of electro in a Mediterranean utopia. What better way to kicks off the summer vibes?
