BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac has released a new documentary titled “Who Killed The Night?”, in which she explores the decline of clubs in the UK over the last ten years. Speaking to important figures behind Fabric as well as visiting the (not quite so) world-famous Solstice in Peterborough, Annie investigates the impact of residential and commercial development on night culture in London and further afield, and makes some enlightening inroads into the problems facing club owners today. Also touching on the importance of clubbing to different demographics and in particular the LGBT community, the documentary is worth a watch for anyone who feels invested in dance music culture.

Annie Mac will be curating a fine lineup of musical treats as she presents Lost & Found Festival this summer, with the likes of Armand Van Helden, The Black Madonna and loads more soundtracking four days of music in Malta. Running from Thursday 13th until Monday 17th April on St Paul’s Bay, the festival will provide a summer haven for clubbers wanting to escape abroad for a few days.
Also featured in the documentary is new London venue Printworks, which will launch in early February. Tickets for Printworks events, which include Nina Kraviz, Maya Jane Coles and DJ Koze, can be found here.
