The battle between Saint Josep police and DC10 has sadly reached new levels, with the club being unable to open last night for ‘Carl Cox Invites’.
For years, residents, the council and police have been targetting venues on the island over disputes about noise levels. This summer seems to be no exception to other clubs like Cova Santa, who have faced similar fates throughout the season.
As reported by Periódico de Ibiza y Formentera, there have been a total of 22 temporary seals of venues so far this season. The latest of which appears to be DC10 on one of their most popular nights of the summer.
DC10 has been the target of noise complaints for years. With the local government looking to be making plenty of examples on the island this year, it could well be the start of many issues for some of the island’s most renowned clubs with outdoor terraces and heavyweight sound equipment.
Gathering many comments on social media, it appears there was little to no explanation for consumers, with ticketing outlets simply cancelling and offering refunds. Understandably, this left partygoers confused and annoyed that they couldn’t attend the event – with some attendees even flying out to the island just for the show.
It’s yet to be confirmed when DC10 will be allowed to reopen. They have released an official statement via their social media this afternoon, looking forward to “double the dancefloor fun” as Coxy goes b2b with Laurent Garnier all night long next Tuesday (26th).
Here’s to hoping there’s more “Oh Yes!” and less “Oh No!” for DC10, Carl and the rest of the brands hosting the venue for the rest of the season.
