One thing ive never done in Ibiza, which i would love to, would be to spend new year over there. Partly because its new year, but mostly because NYE is my birthday, and its something i have never done!
This year, Circo Loco will be hosting a party on new years day 2013 in the usual spot of DC10. They have done this for a few years now and the fact it keeps on happening shows the popularity of the event.
Ive never been to Ibiza out of season (apart from when i was about 14) but everything you read points to it being a great time of the year to experience the Island and the nights without mass tourism getting in the way.
It certainly on my list of things to do. Check out the video below, its from a few years ago, and it looks like it was filmed in the 80’s, its still a decent little video though of the DC10 terrace on NYD 2007.
Doors Open 4pm and the lineup is:
Matthias Tanzmann 16:00
The Martinez Brothers
DC will be smashing its door open for the start of the 2012 season on the 28th May 2012.
This date inst a surprise as its become the usual date for the Ibiza season to start, it fits with the end of the Ibiza Music Summit and it will no doubt be the same weekend as the Space opening Party.
Ive been out for this weekend and taken in the DC10 opening party, its easily one of the best weekends of the summer and i would always recommend experiencing the opening weekend at least once!
As and when info is released, i will update this post accordingly. Only 20 weeks to go!!
If you have been to the island this year, you have probably seen it, if you are going this year, you will see it!
You may have noticed that at some point during the night, everyone sits down on the dance floor (apart from the spannered guy that doesn’t know what’s going on!) and then on queue, usually by the dj, they jump up and down being very happy!
It seems to be happening every ware this season, some times promoted by the Dj (im thinking Ibiza Rocks here) which is usually pap because you have been asked to do it, but a lot of the time, completely random, its something most people join in on and you can’t argue that it looks really good!
However, although this is sweeping dance floors in Ibiza this season, it’s not the first time it has happened! Its been going on for years in DC10 with Magda, the best and probably the first video i saw of it was in 2007!
This year DC10 and Circo Loco open their doors on the 30th May, I think this is pretty much cemented as the permanent opening weekend now as it ties in with too much other stuff for it to be moved round freely.
Anyway, You can now purchase your tickets for the Circo Loco opening party, I went to it last year and all the ticket outlets stopped selling tickets the day before the event saying it had sold out, so make sure you get your ticket if you want to go. Last year, they were letting people in on the door though the club was completely rammed to breaking point so it wasn’t a guaranteed entry.
Info is very sparse as it always is at the start of the year, however Ibiza Spotlight are reporting that Circo Loco will be opening on the 30th May in 2011. Matthias Tanzmann has go the date listed on Myspace as the opening party.
This date is concrete for me and its exactly the date i expect Circo Loco to kick of their season. With the success of the Ibiza Music Summit this weekend is the obvious choice for the first clubs to start opening.
With the Space opening party happening for the two days beforehand it is a great way to kick-start the season.
Other parties i expect to see will be the Zoo Project on the Saturday and possibly David Guetta around that time if he continues this season.
If you have not been to Ibiza for the very start of the season before i would recommend it to anyone. Last year in 2010 i was out there for an extra long weekend over the space and DC10 opening and its a really exciting time to make a visit and be involved in the first major parties of the summer season.
For the opening party DC10 will be opening at Noon on Monday 30th May.
