Planet Dance: the clue is in the title with Mallorca’s most famous dance venue. And with three floors, three rooms, 15 bars and a capacity to fit 7,000 clubbers, it genuinely is in a world of its own.

Purpose built as a superclub in 1988, BCM is a year off its 30th birthday but remains as innovative as ever, with annual décor refreshes on all three rooms and the most up-to-date tech, such as the 65,000w Funktion One system, festival-level lighting and special effects.

DJ-wise it’s quicker to list the A-list DJs who haven’t played BCM in recent years. Premiership headliners to perform at one of the venue’s regular parties such as Cream, Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters, MTV, Mistajam’s Speakerbox, DJ Sammy’s Supermartxe include… Deadmau5, Skrillex, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Above & Beyond, Calvin Harris, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Angello, Chase & Status, Loco Dice. Even Snoop Dogg has performed there as DJ Snoopadelic.

Adding a real legitimacy to Magaluf’s gradually shifting reputation as a holiday destination for real music lovers, BCM has flown the flag like no other in Mallorca. And as it gears up to its 30th year, you get the impression the plan is to expand even more. 


Poll Clubs 2016: BCM Planet Dance

Magaluf may have a certain rep amongst some clubbers, but its biggest nightclub by far — BCM Mallorca, aka BCM Planet Dance — has still managed to persuade the world’s biggest DJs to spin in its huge environs. Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix, Avicii, Nicky Romero, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, Afrojack… if you think of a big name in the Top 100 DJs list, it’s a racing cert that they’ve played at BCM in recent times.

Presided over by main man Gordon Phillips, BCM has a 7000-capacity and a whopping all-inclusive 15 bars — so you definitely won’t leave thirsty. Upstairs is the serious main party-hearty dancefloor with a 65,000W Funktion One soundsystem, pukka lasers and a big ice cannon, while downstairs resident DJs like DJ Sparrow, PBH, Chris Online and Gordon himself keep the vibe more fun-filled.
