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.

This project consists of artworks made in different mediums: murals, digital art, music, sculptures, installations, photography, painting, video installations and special events.

Each year, art is created around a general theme; the past editions themes were “Sea Creatures” (2011); “Appearance” (2012); “Control” (2013); “The Best -Arrogance-” (2014); “Parallel Universes” (2015), and “No Fear” (2016). All of them seek to create a moment of reflection for the attendees.
