BLOOP 2013 HIGHLIGHTS 
OPEN AIR GALLERY
The Open Air Gallery is BLOOP`s long term project that started off with a single gigantic wall painting of a mermaid by the football pitch in Sant Antoni. Embodying the nature of the festival’s ethos that art is for everybody, its all accessible under the blue skies of Ibiza. Murals, sculptures, IT visual installations, photo expositions and interactive audio installations will be awaiting you just around the corner. Artists contributing to the gallery are Phlegm, Interesni Kazki, Dadi Dreucol, Iena Cruz, Malarky, Pedro Hormigo, Emilio Cejalvo, Marc Colomines, Guildor + Fra.Biancoshock
BLOOP HQ MUSEUM
The HQs` true identity is a museum that cradles installations and exhibitions of Tom Gallant, Pineapple Crocodile, Emilio Cejalvo, Silva Ramacci, ARA, Massimo Mazzone, Lo Spino, Montse Nadal.
BLOOP N’ SUNSETS  
During the course of the festival, the lighthouse at Far Des Coves Blanques, the BLOOP headquarters, will be changing face from museum to open air lounge becoming BLOOP`n Sunsets – parties taking in the incredible setting sun with respected electronic brands as an aural backdrop.   BLOOP`n Sunsets will also be drifting away to Kumharas in Cala de Bou during the month long fiesta – famous for its incredible sunset view and open chill-out space.

Digital Genetic Pasta, Tranz Lasagne and Freakatronic are the BLOOP faces in the line-up.
WE LOVE…BLOOP 
Following on from last year’s success, the island’s bastion of left-leaning electronic music We Love… collaborate with BLOOP for parties every Sunday at Far Des Coves Blanques. Here they will create an open air lounge, complete with art installations and music from the likes of PBR Streetgang, Jem Haynes and a Mr Doris After Dark Special, cast against the sunset.  The avant-garde art & music tag will come to fruition on the 11th of August when We Love…celebrate Space’s birthday at Ibiza’s infamous club, with BLOOP being a special interactive part of the celebration.
BLOOP N’ Sunsets kicks off with the opening party on the 13th July at Far Des Coves Blanques where they will be joined by We Love…Biokip Records and Data Transmission.

DIGITAL GENETIC PASTA INTERACTIVE AUDIO INSTALLATION
An installation that needs the participation of the people to function, located in Sant Antoni. Anybody that comes within the action radius of the apparatus, instantly becomes the remixer, the DJ, the maestro of the music by moving their bodies.
 
BLOOP KIDS
Last year saw many youngsters’ blossom as they took charge of their own creative direction at BLOOP.  Freely expressing themselves though graffiti workshops, they added splashes of colour and identity all over the island.  This year kids will be having 360° approach to art creating their own mural, stop motion filming and music composing, putting their stamp on the festival once again.  Their artistic tool of choice will be paint  – explored through body painting, stencils, collages, shells, bottle caps and other recycled materials. Many of these materials will be sourced by the children themselves from within the Old Lighthouse and its vicinity, the BLOOP HQ for 2013.
2013 CONCEPT AND FULL LIST OF ARTISTS

This year, BLOOP welcomes 20 artists hailing from Spain, the UK, Ukraine, Italy, France, Germany and the USA. Every year BLOOP constructs the aesthetic around a theme related closely to our daily lives. This year that theme is CONTROL and the BLOOP artists will interpret and express this concept in their own languages and techniques across the month long exhibition, inviting us to think and reflect on how control affects us all. Particularly relevant considering the recent news that North America has started to gather data from social networks and communication services for submission to the State. This is proactive, not reactive art.
FULL LIST OF 2013 ARTISTS 
Tom Gallant, Pineapple Crocodile, Emilio Cejalvo, Silva Ramacci, Marc Colomines, Guildor + Fra.Biancoshock, ARA, Phlegm, Interesni Kazki, Dadi Dreucol, Iena Cruz, Malark, Massimo Mazzone, Pedro Hormigo, Montse Nadal , Digital Genetic Pasta, Tranz Lasagne, Freakatronic, Lo Spino
