FORM Arcosanti, the annual 3-day creative retreat & festival held in the urban laboratory of Arcosanti, AZ, has announced the music lineup & select cultural programming for this year’s iteration, set to take place the weekend of May 10-12, 2019. Backdropped by Arcosanti’s otherworldly architecture & landscapes, a community of just 2000 participants will have the opportunity to experience incredibly intimate performances by Skrillex, Florence + The Machine, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Kaytranada, Japanese Breakfast, Peggy Gou, DJ Koze, Pussy Riot, and many more. Best of all — no overlapping sets.
“Seeing a performance in the Arcosanti Amphitheater is unlike anything else,” states FORM curator Zach Tetrault. “The intimacy and intentional design of the space makes every audience member feel like they are a part of the show. Having artists like Florence and Paak play in that venue will be a life changing experience. It’s also important to us to feature groundbreaking poets like Yrsa Daley-Ward who are completely changing the landscape of poetry forever. We couldn’t be more grateful and excited about this year.”
Commonly thought of as being founded by Skrillex, FORM was actually created by the band Hundred Waters after visiting the experimental eco-city of Arcosanti while on tour in 2013. Though, Skrillex continues to be an integral part of the experience year to year.
FORM also hosts engaging and inspired cultural programs, including talks, panels, workshops, immersive art, poetry, new technologies, and outdoor/wellness activities with topics ranging from environmentalism to social justice, architecture, design, and more.
