Unlike many Electronic festivals that attract an underground fan base, Annie Mac Presents: Lost & Found was predominantly aimed at the mainstream crowd. The result was an exciting blend of DJs, playing a whole plethora of music, ranging from underground tracks being dropped for the very first time, to the chart toppers you’d expect to hear at your local mainstream club.
Hit The Floor was able to experience the full spectrum of offerings across the weekend, and while we couldn’t see everyone, there was a few DJs that stood out for us at Lost and Found.Source: Promo / Official Facebook
1. DJ EZ
Playing to a packed and overheating small handful of people in the grungy and bass-heavy area of the festival, The Factory, DJ EZ started his set with a strong crew behind him in the DJ box, including Annie Mac herself who one festival goer described as “in awe” of his set. Since the festival, a video of this has gone viral across the internet, that sums up the sheer skill of the man himself perfectly.

2. Martinez Brothers Boat Party
There is something seriously cool about The Martinez Brothers that transfers to the crowd when they perform, and the boat party was no exception. After a great warm-up set from Carl Bee, as we talked to people on the boat, it was obvious that everyone on it was a big fan of the underground scene, which differentiated things a bit from the rest of the festival. Everyone partied twice as hard than any other set at the festival, and when The Martinez Brothers dropped the track ‘Low Frequency’ by Denney it made for the best crowd reaction we saw all weekend.
3. Eats Everything
When Eats Everything was added to the lineup, reactions across the community were strong. The Bristol Based DJ continuously rises through the Resident Advisor charts, and it is hardly surprising, as every set he plays is varied and continually sends the crowd electric. It was just a shame that he only played at the warmup, and not the festival itself.
4. Skream b2b Artwork
Thousands descended on The Terrace at The Aquarium for Skream’s set, back to back with Artwork at 4pm. As we arrived an hour in, the crowd was one of the busiest we’d seen across the event, even for the early time of 5pm. Playing a blend of Disco, House and Garage, while the music was great, the drunken antics of Skream and Artwork on stage were even more hilarious to watch, as they bounced off each other, climbed over the decks and brought girls up on stage to make for one crazy party, that the crowd reacted to equally as wild.

5. Annie Mac (Opening)
Annie Mac played a great set at the closing day of the festival, but it was her warm-up set that people seemed to be most impressed with. It was simply refreshing to see Annie side-step from her usual, more commercial electronic tracks and into something refreshingly underground, that followed on flawlessly from Eats Everything’s set.
