It’s the party with the distinctive clown face that we all know and love. The party that undeniably owns Mondays each and every summer in Ibiza with a line up that looks like what you could call a UEFA Champions League of DJs. Circoloco. The Spanish to English translation for this party curated by 2 Italians reads ‘Crazy Circus’ and rightly so. For that is what springs to mind. A crazy circus of quality underground music, usually across 3 rooms at DC10. A party built on no gimmicks, just quality pedal to the metal House & Techno. Founded in 1999 as an after-hours night to follow on from the 24hr Sunday sessions at Space, Circoloco has been raising the bar for underground music parties for almost 20 years. And to this day it still continues to do so, leaving party goers with ever-lasting memories yearning for more. A ‘DJ’s DJ’ is a track selector of the highest decree, one who entertains the faithful whilst educating the well schooled. If this term could be applied to parties, then Circoloco is ‘The Party’s Party’.
Such is the notoriety of this event, pretty much every name worth knowing in the House & Techno scene has played for Circoloco. So many of the big players in the game can stake a claim to holding a residency or guesting at Circoloco, among them, Tania Vulcano, Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice, Sacha, Dubfire, Clive Henry, Jamie Jones, The Martinez Brothers, Ellen Allien, Apolonia & Luciano. The list is incredible. So when Printworks announced their 2018 Autumn/Winter programme, it came as no surprise to see the Circoloco date rapidly sell out without a line up to boot. Dates were checked and tickets were booked by revellers clinging to memories such as losing their s**t to Kerri Chandler dropping some fire in the red room of the terrace.
Circoloco comes to London via Printworks on Sunday December 16th for what looks set to be another set of epic memories. The line up boast heavyweights such as Damian Lazarus, DJ Tennis, Skream, Richy Ahmed, Butch amongst others so you can expect magic to be created. Also just announced is an after party for the show over at the bass heavy venue of E1. Tickets for the events at time of writing are sold out but a cheeky look on platforms like TicketSwap and you might just seek some joy.
