Circo Loco is about as DC-10 as DC-10 gets. From humble beginnings in 1999 the Monday party (which still holds down the same weekly slot today) has become one of the most desirable Ibiza has to offer, irresistible to anyone who likes clubbing in its purist form.
Line-ups overflow with techno talent every week with DJs practically lining up to play; the Circo Loco reputation is as strong on the industry side as it is for the clubbers. The careers of Tania Vulcano, Loco Dice and Luciano owe much to their involvement with DC-10 Monday afternoons, which stirred up a buzz that has never died.
Circo Loco has a very colourful history, as fancy dress was once an unofficial pre-requisite to attendance. The atmosphere was wild and joyous – a true representation of the ‘anything goes’ ethos of Ibiza. Whilst fewer people dip into the dress-up box these days, the same community prevails of clubbers coming together for sheer joy of music – no frills necessary.
2008/9 saw a difficult time in the party’s progress, as a series of enforced closures and legal issues threatened to cripple it. Circo Loco bounced back in 2010 however and has been looking forward ever since. The iconic clown face has since travelled across the globe, throwing Circo Loco parties across the continents every year, however DC-10 will always be home.
The Circo Loco opening party for 2014 (which doubles as the DC-10 opening) has been announced for Monday the 26th of May. Line-ups, as usual, are tight under wraps and expected to stay that way until very close to the date.
