If you ever find yourself wanting to party it up in Malta, here’s everything to know about the AMP Lost and Found Music Festival.

How the AMP Lost and Found Festival Began

The AMP, or ‘Annie Mac Presents’ Lost and Found Festival was the big idea of Irish-born DJ Annie Mac. She advocates for upending institutional patriarchy by providing a platform for more female representation in music. This passion drove her to begin organizing the festival around seven years ago. In an interview, Annie Mac tells Billboard; “It’s just about changing the way you think a bit, being aware that there is a lot of female talent…there’s someone there speaking for and on behalf of women, who are half of the human race.”

Since then, the festival has been held in the beautiful Republic of Malta, attracting over 8,000 attendees per year. Like most other concerts and music festivals, AMP Lost and Found was canceled when the pandemic was at its peak. But after its three-year hiatus, it took place once again in the heart of Fort St Elmo from June 1 to 4, 2022. The main lineup included the likes of Denis Sulta, The Blessed Madonna, Bad Boy Chiller Crew, Baklava, and of course, Annie Mac herself.
