Following the success of its debut edition, which saw tickets sell-out in a matter of days, Annie Mac Presents Lost & Found Festival returns to the Mediterranean island of Malta on Thursday 31st March to Sunday 3rd April 2016. Curated by the UK’s most influential tastemaker, BBC Radio 1 DJ and broadcaster Annie Mac, the Spring festival will expand to four days and will welcome headliners Disclosure (DJ set), Mark Ronson and Hudson Mohawke, Seth Troxler, Stormzy, DJ EZ, Eats Everything, Maya Jane Coles and The Martinez Brothers as well as Annie herself, playing sets against the dynamic and beautiful Maltese backdrop.
Building on the varied event program, which by day features pool and boat parties set against the stunning backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea, before moving onto an exclusive night-time venue, AMP Lost & Found can also reveal a range of 2016 additions including extra stages and day time parties at a beautiful ancient hill-top castle. With the aim to offer festival goers an authentic visit of the island that goes beyond the traditional festival set-up, event organisers – who are comprised of established promoters The Warehouse Project, Sound Channel, Drop the Mustard, Metropolis, Fresh Events, Lights Out and Annie Mac herself – have continued to work closely with Experience Malta as their official travel partners. Delivering an all-encompassing travel package that includes new official hotel rooms that are available from just £17.99 per person per night and affordable flights to and from the UK and Europe.
Fresh off the back of her number one dance album ‘Annie Mac presents 2015’, Annie remains the UK’s number one electronic music influencer with AMP events selling out worldwide.
Speaking on the project, Annie said:
“I’ve been doing parties for ten years now. From the pool parties in Palm Springs, to showcases in scuzzy bars in Austin, Texas to sunset parties at Ibiza’s Dalt Vila to stages at Miami’s Ultra Music festival to the many line-ups I have put together for AMP arena’s at UK festivals across the UK. I have welcomed a huge range of fascinating electronic artists from Jamie XX to Kelis to Four Tet, Major Lazer to Jessie Ware to Danny Brown, the list goes on and on and it all leads to this. AMP Lost and Found encapsulates everything up to this date.
Like everything team AMP has done before, the festival is designed to showcase the heavyweight acts next to the brand new, providing an interesting mix of music with something for everyone to connect with. Disclosure will make their Malta debut for AMP Lost & Found 2016, alongside the legendary DJ EZ - who will return after causing quite a storm with his set last year. Dance-floor favourites Seth Troxler, Eats Everything and Martinez Brothers are also billed and Mark Ronson playing B2B with Hudson Mohawke will be unmissable - whilst Stormzy, Logan Sama, Lady Leshurr and Charlie Sloth will be flying the flag for the hip hop and grime spectrum of the festival.
We also invite a range of AMP friends and family back to Malta including Heidi, Shy FX, Katy B, Melè, Monki, B Traits, Redlight, Hannah Wants and Toddla T, along with up-and-comers Jasper James, Preditah and Patrick Topping. We have everyone from Sir David Rodigan MBE to Charlie Sloth to Horsemeat Disco looking after our pool parties and I am so delighted to welcome my French friends from Edbanger Busy P, Breakbot and Para One to take over the Factory venue for Saturday night. Altogether it’s a wonderful motley crue of my favourite DJs and artists in electronic music today and I’m so very proud to present it to you. Bring on AMP Lost And Found 2016.”
For those who signed up to pre-sale, tickets will go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 13th October along with Experience Malta packages, with general sale tickets going live at 9am on Thursday 14th October.
