Seven consecutive years of BLOOP Festival has attracted attention to a vast number of people who work in the art and creative industry by opening a new path for Ibiza`s tourism market.

The proactive art festival was born in 2011 with the theme “Sea Creatures;” six editions later, the project is consolidated as one of the most important across the globe.

With the idea of ​​holding an event that attracts the general public – not just the people who frequent galleries and museums – the festival was brought to Ibiza, created by the creative studio Biokip Labs.
