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.
