Twenty-one years on from its beginnings as an after-party — when the now-defunct Space club in Playa d’en Bossa finished up 24-hour Sunday sessions at 6am — Antonio Carbonaro’s DC-10 remains one of Ibiza’s underground mainstays. Gaining notoriety throughout the early noughties as the place to be seen, the 1,500-capacity, iconic red-walled club is located in a converted Spanish Finca, and sits near the end of Ibiza Airport’s south-east runway.

Home of the White Isle’s now-global party, Circoloco, which was born at the club in 1999, guests like Amelie Lens, DJ Tennis and Denis Sulta performed across the 20th-anniversary season last year, as well as the more regular fixtures in the form of Job Jobse, The Martinez Brothers, and Seth Troxler. Across two main rooms, the club offers an intimate, underground clubbing experience, as well as an outdoor terrace that provides an immersive, hedonistic atmosphere.

Jamie Jones’ Paradise party celebrated its final year at DC-10 last year, announcing a move further North on the island to superclub, Amnesia. While Circoloco remains the biggest event at the club, and indeed on Mondays across the island, the future of Wednesday nights at the club is still a mystery — but rest assured, the institute has big things in store for a new decade at DC-10.

With 20 Ibiza seasons under its belt, DC-10 has cemented its reputation as a club with one of the most interesting underground house and techno line-ups on the White Isle.

Located in a former farmhouse and aircraft hangar just a stone’s throw away from the Ibiza airport runway, DC-10 keeps channelling original Balearic vibes by offering daytime partying under the warm Mediterranean sun. Aptly named after a DC-10 aeroplane, the venue is often associated with the sight of aeroplanes flying low above the garden dancefloor, much to clubbers’ excitement. DC-10, which spans two indoor rooms as well, is also known for its mighty custom-made soundsystem, designed by George Stravo and produced by Italian sound reinforcement company Loud Professional.

Over the years, the club has become synonymous with its flagship night, Circoloco, which has been an integral part of its history since the get-go. Now the party is one of the most popular events on the island, with top-notch residents like The Martinez Brothers, Seth Troxler, Damian Lazarus, Apollonia and Ellen Allien.

In addition, Jamie Jones’ Paradise party has been going strong at the venue for seven seasons to date, with last season’s all-star residents including Richy Ahmed, Patrick Topping, wAFF and Jones himself.

Of all the Ibiza clubs in the Top 100 list, DC-10 retains the original Balearic spirit more than most. Nineteen years young, the club occupies a former farmhouse and aircraft hangar located near the island’s airport (it’s named after a DC-10 aeroplane). It has maintained an underground dance agenda since its inception.

Through its flagship Circoloco promotion, DC-10 made the minimal techno sound explode in the mid-to-late 2000s, via residents such as Tania Vulcano and guests including Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano. Coupled with a reputation for wild hedonistic abandon from the crowd, it became the hippest club on the island, a status it retains today thanks to the addition of newer nights Paradise (helmed by Jamie Jones, his label mates and guests) and Wild Life (Disclosure’s limited event series). Broadening its musical focus to encompass less minimal fare in recent years, in 2017 Masters At Work, Kim Ann Foxman, Maceo Plex and Horsemeat Disco delivered a more diverse sound to the venue.

With three dancefloors, including a large outdoor sun terrace, the soundsystem at the club, engineered by audio experts Andy Kayll and Rich Walsh, is a thing of wonder. DC-10 is a roadblock every time, and even as the White Isle becomes more commercial, it remains a beacon of subterranean sounds and uninhibited partying.
