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. 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 by choosing participants for their creativity, thoughtfulness and intention. The program includes performances, discussions, workshops, installations, technologies and activities that celebrate creativity.

About WeTransfer Studios:

With WeTransfer Studios, WeTransfer has worked toward launching creative partnerships with some of the world’s most interesting artists and organizations including FKA twigs, Rankin, Anderson .Paak, Kamasi Washington, McSweeney's, World Press Photo, The Royal Academy of Arts and the Ace Hotel Group.

About WeTransfer

WeTransfer makes beautifully obvious tools that bring ideas to life. Founded in 2009 in Amsterdam as a simple, well-designed file sharing service for the creative community, WeTransfer has grown to include tools that scale across the creative spectrum, including editorial platform WePresent (with over 2M monthly readers), mobile app 'Collect by WeTransfer' (with over 4M monthly users), quick slide-making tool Paste™ (with over 100,000 teams), immersive sketching tool Paper® (with over 25M downloads), and the original web platform with 43M monthly users and over a billion files sent each month.

From the beginning, WeTransfer has prioritized bringing “offline” values - trust, transparency, and ethics - online. This means having a responsible data policy and tools that don’t distract people from their creative flow. WeTransfer has pioneered a new means of online advertising, resulting in the platform’s full-page wallpapers, designed by our award-winning in-house creative studio. Advertisers include industry-leading brands like Apple, Saint Laurent, Google, Balenciaga, Samsung, Netflix, Adidas, and Squarespace.

Since its founding, WeTransfer has proudly supported the creative communities and given up to 30% of advertising space to support the arts, donating over 5 billion impressions in 2017. Through our ongoing advertising grant program and content platform, WePresent, we have partnered with hundreds of groundbreaking artists and organizations, including Björk, King Krule, FKA twigs, Ryan McGinley, Ami Vitale, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the UN Development Program, the World Wildlife Foundation and the Prince Estate. In 2016, WeTransfer launched the world’s first free Masters of the Arts in design thinking with the University of the Underground and Worldwide FM, the global radio station run by legendary BBC DJ Gilles Peterson.

Following a $25 million investment from Highland Europe in 2015, WeTransfer opened a US office in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, to add to the Amsterdam headquarters. In 2018, WeTransfer acquired popular creative apps Paper® and Paste™ and expanded its US presence to Seattle and New York City.
