DC10 Ibiza History

DC10’s history traces back to 1986. Back then, brothers Sito and Antonio Lara bought a disused aircraft hanger and converted it into a discreet makeshift dancefloor for small gatherings of local partygoers. The venue was nearly called U2, due to the band’s popularity at the time (can you imagine that now!?). However, DC10 was named after the aircraft model, which has since been discontinued.

It wasn’t until 2002 when DC10 really hit the global stage. Italian promoters Andrea Pelino and Antonio Carbonaro wanted to throw a free party where the music wasn’t tied to any single genre. With Sundays at the legendary Space being one of the most popular parties in Ibiza at the time, many saw DC10 as the perfect venue to continue. Their party Circoloco was born, and Mondays in Ibiza have never been the same since.

The club has had licensing issues over the years, including a year long closure in 2008 after repeatedly violating its 65 person capacity by several hundred every week. Nowadays you can expect over 4,000 across its terrace, club and garden spaces. Despite the growing popularity of the club, it still remains distinctly different compared to the VIP and production heavy experience of Ibiza’s superclubs such as Amnesia, Pacha, Ushuaïa and . Indeed, underground is the very essence of DC10 and its owners will keep it that way.

The names DC10 and Circoloco now go hand-in-hand, with Circoloco now known the world over as one of the most authoritative names in underground house and techno music.

Even though their parties take place in every corner of the globe, it is DC10 where it all started, and continues to be the most important venue that pushes new boundaries, and epitomises the “spirit of the underground” every year.

Club Information

DC10 can hold up to 4,000 clubbers in total.

There are three distinct areas at DC10. The original dancefloor is the terrace, which used to be completely uncovered until 2006. Now it stands as the most popular room of the club for the headline DJs past midnight. The club room is located next to the terrace, also indoors. Meanwhile the garden stage offers an open air dancefloor, flanked by bars either side of it. 

DC10’s soundsystem had an extensive upgrade in 2018, and uses powersoft speakers.

The lighting system in DC10 compared to other clubs is minimal. You can expect its red drenched spotlights in most places, in keeping with the red, black and white theme of Circoloco.

Being so close to Ibiza’s airport, when you’re at the club you will frequently see planes passing overhead. Don’t forget to give them a cheer 😉

Back in the day, a small aircraft used to sit on the front of the club’s gates. It had to be removed since pilots were thinking there had been a crash landing!

“Cutting edge underground house & techno, cheers as planes pass by, and a no-frills necessary authentic clubbing experience”

  • Get to Circoloco early. We’ve got there as early as 5pm and you’re still guaranteed to hear some incredible music in the sun, with plenty of space to dance.
