Set to return to the stunning Mediterranean island of Malta for its fourth edition, Annie Mac Presents Lost & Found has announced names for its 2018 line-up which will take place during the first UK bank holiday weekend in May. Kicking things off as the first festival of the summer season, Lost & Found will offer 4 days and 4 nights of unique parties held across pools, boats, castles and an incredible outdoor nighttime festival site, with confirmed headliners including Diplo, Jamie XX, Four Tet, J Hus and event curator Annie Mac. The varied bill will also bring together an eclectic mix of AMP’s close friends and family as well as a slew of exciting breakthrough artists, spanning across a wealth of genres from house and techno through to grime and bass.
Having been at the heart of Malta’s growing reputation as a clubbing destination since its inception back in 2015, the picturesque setting of the island has grown to become the ideal party destination for music fans seeking sun, sea and affordability. This year’s edition will also see the weekender take place at the later date of early May, ensuring soaring temperatures for party goers looking to top up their tan, with evening events taking place at a closeby AMP Lost & Found festival site.
Headed up by BBC Radio 1’s chief tastemaker Annie Mac, this year’s line-up will be topped by British DJ-producer Jamie XX, electronic kingpin and Major Lazer head honcho Diplo, plus electronic musician Four Tet and Mercury Prize nominee J Hus – the latter making his first ever appearance in Malta. An extraordinary selection of DJ talent sees the likes of Kölsch, The Black Madonna, Mall Grab, Heidi and Bicep confirmed, with Londoners Novelist, Donae’o and Not3s representing the festival’s rap offering. Legendary garage trio The Dreem Teem and The Streets frontman Mike Skinner make their Lost & Found debuts, as well as Annie’s fellow Radio 1 selector Clara Amfo and R&B newcomer Mabel.
Speaking of this year’s festival, Annie Mac says:
“And so begins year four of our beloved Lost and Found festival. This time we are in the month of May! I’m excited for sunnier days and warmer nights, all the better for raving longer to the finest electronic music this world has to offer. The line-up this year is HUGE so pick your sets to see and enjoy every second of this 4 day adventure. See you over the weekend…”
