Bloop Festival 2017

The seventh edition of the Bloop Festival will take place in the city of Ibiza between the 23rd August and 9th September, with art exhibitions, group installations, performances and activities for kids
The artists selected from different disciplines taking part in this edition will tackle the subject of change as the central theme when creating their works of art. Two of these works have already been made in the city of Ibiza. One is the wall mural that the artist INO has created on the façade of the school of sa Bodega and the other is the work of the Mexican artist SPAIK in the access tunnel to Soto.
