DC10 in Staying Open Shocker!



Don’t believe everything you read. Solid advice, but only half true in this case as if you’re anything like us you will have had your social media feeds clogged up with doom merchants lamenting the loss of Ibiza institution DC-10 for the 2014 season citing an article doing the rounds online without actually reading the article.

The article entitled “dc10 club closure: the end of the line for the Ibiza Underground?”   (which can be read here) does indeed foretell of the white isle nightspot having to shut its doors for “one year and imposed a 300,000 fine” on the back of a 57 day closure order spanning June to August. The problem is that those sharing the article clearly haven’t read much more than the headline and opening sentences as a quick skim through reveals that the news piece dates back to 2007 as made clear by the sentence: “The Spanish government ruled (based on a three year- old drugs complaint made by the Guardia Civil) that DC10 would have to shut for the 57 “remaining” days of the 60 day closure ordered at the beginning of summer 2007.

So there you have it. Two thousand and bloody seven. We can only assume that people are being confused by today’s date being placed above the article and that they haven’t read it in it’s entirety or with any decent amount of concentration. Either that or some of our friends from 2007 have jumped in a delorean to the present day and forgot about their time travelling exploits along the way. Time travelling amnesia aside,  anyone worried they wouldn’t be able to get their DC-10 fix this year can now chill out, book their flights and enjoy the club as they always do. Move along, nothing to see here…

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
