BLOOP Festival turned Ibiza into an open gallery

Not just music and festivals: every year the Balearic Island attracts artists of different disciplines to interpret the theme of change through architectural interventions, interactive installations, workshops and video games

It’s not easy to change the name of a place, especially one like Ibiza, known by all as the perfect destination – in summer, but not only – for the best dj-sets, place-to-be and night clubs on its beaches dancing until the coming of the new day. Thanks to the BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival, one of the coolest Mediterranean destinations can be considered as a real open-air gallery thanks to the extraordinary and gigantic street art works that are populating it.

With the name of OpenAir.Gallery, the project was born with a single mural in 2011 and over the years the collection has enriched the contributions of artists from all over the world such as David de la Mano & Pablo S Herrero, B-Toy, Ara, Bisser, Cuellimangui, Sabotaje to Montaje and many others. This year’s edition, the seventh, has been concluded for a few days and with the participation of Ino and Spaik it has been confirmed as an artistic and social appointment to be included in the calendar.

From the small town on the west coast of Sant’Antoni – to name the Cafè del Mar and one of the best sunsets in the Mediterranean – this year the festival moved its headquarters to the historic center of Evissa, inviting artists from different disciplines to interpret the “changes” theme, to record the changes of contemporary society, from values, to lifestyles, to politics, technology and the environment.

Architecture and design, street art, virtual reality, video mapping and interactive installations, workshops, video games, exhibitions and music: At BLOOP Festival, art is proactive and can be the perfect vehicle for retraining urban spaces and giving new lymph to tourism.

In the expectation of the next summer edition, you can follow some of the design exhibitions that from Ibiza move first to the Design Week in London and in April 2018 at Design Week in Milan.

Julie Gauthron who oversaw the interior of the structure, ranging from shimmering sequins in vintage furniture, with lots of vintage amps

and neon lights that recall yesteryear. Staying in Europe, the Jaz in the city of Amsterdam already mentions by name and makes the

delight of lovers of have a high quality sound system available in each of the 247 rooms, while the Hotel da Música in Porto is the realm of

Because it is a cradle of music during the years 70s and 80s, especially for those in

search of memorabilia. Posters of the tour, photos little known to the grand public, backstage pass, records and autographed posters of

the local club nights are available to customers.

Rolling Stones, The Who and the children of the city, Aerosmith, are the most popular
