BLOOP IBIZA – International festival of Urban Art 12-25 August 2023
BLOOP Festival is excited to announce its 13th anniversary with the launch of its 15th edition in Ibiza, Spain this August. Created by the visionary Biokip Labs, the creative atelier based in Milan, Italy, BLOOP is one of the leading, free outdoor galleries in the world, now with new virtual elements bringing the festival direct to new audiences.
BLOOP is a festival unlike any other; featuring over 60 outdoor murals and installations by renowned artists including Martha Cooper, Phlegm, Okuda, Said Dokins, Olek, Ben Eine, Inti, Spy, Interesni Kazki, AMADAMA and many more. This year taking ‘BELIEVE’ as its central theme, the island-wide festival will return this summer with exciting new artist participations TBA in the coming weeks.
A fresh new partnership: BLOOP has joined forces with Endesa to further elevate the OpenAirGallery project. The collaboration makes available a series of ubiquitous electric boxes and large facades scattered across the island, transforming them into artistic canvases for BLOOP artists to showcase their creativity. These electrifying collaborations will surely make this year’s BLOOP Festival even more spectacular and captivating.
In addition to these electric structures, the whole island of Ibiza will welcome new vibrant murals, interactive installations, photography exhibitions, and innovative urban art. From traditional art to innovative new art forms, BLOOP never ceases to explore emerging talent and new avenues of Proactive Art.
Adding a new dimension to the BLOOP experience, the BLOOP Art Festival app, affectionately referred to as the “Pokémon GO of graffiti,” has received a significant update this year. The app not only allows users to discover information about the murals and find artworks through geolocation but also includes an exciting augmented reality (AR) feature to further enrich the experience. Users can now uncover 3D pieces scattered throughout the island using AR, making the exploration of BLOOP art in Ibiza an immersive and thrilling adventure.
The official BLOOP Art Festival app is available for free, providing everyone with access to the latest festival news, information, and a curated selection of the island’s finest artworks. Opting for sustainability and eco-friendliness that involves reducing print materials.
