Born in Dublin to a family immersed in musicality, Annie Mac left home at 17 to attend Queen's University in Belfast, where she was bitten by the clubbing bug, and inspired to purchase her first set of decks, Annie taught herself to mix using old funk and soul records bought from local charity shops. Following a stint as part of Shine's marketing team and four months living in Manhattan, Annie made the move to London, working simultaneously as a TV and radio plugger, a freelance broadcasting assistant and a presenter for the SBN, before she approached BBC Radio 1.

Annie's show on Radio 1 began in July 2004 when, working as a assistant producer on Zane Lowe's show, she impressed Radio 1 bosses with her demos and her determination.

Since then her show has gone from strength to strength. Annie Mac's Mash Up on Friday nights on Radio 1 has attracted a host of loyal followers from around the world and sees Annie play the cutting-edge dance music which she has become known for.

Annie is a talented club DJ, playing reguarly at Stealth since 2005. We have hosted the Nottingham leg of the annual DJ tour 'Annie Mac Presents...' for the last few years, which features Annie playing alongside some of her favourite acts. The clubnight has launched the off-shoot of the 'Annie Mac presents...' CD Compilations - featuring
an eclectic mix of genres in her DJ sets, including House, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, UK Funky and Disco.

Since 2009, Annie Mac's show has moved to the new time slot of 7pm to 9pm, taking over from Pete Tong. One of the highlights of the show are the weekly 'mini-mixes' where Annie's guests make a special mix of all of their favourite songs all 'mashed-up' into a 5 minute mix. A selection of the mixes can be downloaded from here:
