Now in its fourth year, FORM Arcosanti is an intimate music and arts festival founded by the band Hundred Waters in response to their experiences performing at music festivals around the globe.

The founders envisioned something more personal and collaborative than the average music festival. An application-only festival, a diverse community of creators is empowered to participate in FORM Arcosanti, chosen for their creativity, thoughtfulness, and intention. The FORM festival takes place May 12 through May 14, and will include performances by Solange, Future Islands, James Blake, Skrillex, Hundred Waters, and many more. The full performance schedule is available on the FORM Arcosanti website here.

About FORM Arcosanti:

FORM was founded by the Hundred Waters family in response to their experiences performing at music festivals around the globe. While most festivals amassed large audiences, the group found that any meaningful intimacy, time for collaboration, and connection to the festival’s environments were often left to the wayside.

An application-only festival, a diverse community of creators is empowered to participate in FORM by choosing participants for their creativity, thoughtfulness and intention. The program includes performances, discussions, workshops, installations, technologies and activities that celebrate creativity.
