Annie Mac Has Just Been Crowned Malta's Very First Festival Ambassador
The Irish DJ was given the title in London today
Annie Mac, the BBC Radio 1 DJ who set up the awesome Lost and Found Festival in Malta over the last four years, has officially been awarded the title of Festival Ambassador of Malta.
She was given her new title by Minister for Tourism Dr Konrad Mizzi in the presence of the Head of Events Lionel Gerada.
"This award is a representation of how festival tourism has grown over the past few years," said Mr Gerada, while Dr Mizzi commended the Irish DJ for her continuous promotion of the Maltese islands, which, he said, has generated great interest amongst her young followers.
"Such commitment is a clear testimony to the way in which Malta lends itself nicely towards different types of occasions and opportunities that increase inbound tourists," he said.
Annie Mac is the first person to ever hold the title of Festival Ambassador
Annie Mac, born Annie MacManus, is best known locally for Lost and Found Festival, which is approaching its fifth year on the island, and has brought some of the hottest names in UK music to Malta over the last half decade.
Her eponymous festival regularly attracts thousands of ravers to the island, with the government saying that millions of euros are also injected into the local economy due to the festival, which is typically held in the quieter months of March and April.
She just announced the first batch of artists for Annie Mac Presents: Lost and Found Festival 2019, which you can find here.
