FORM Arcosanti has revealed an impeccably curated slate of cultural programming for the 2019 installment of the three-day creative retreat/festival. To complement an already masterful lineup that features Florence + The Machine, Kaytranada, Skrillex, Anderson .Paak, JPGMAFIA, Peggy Gou, Bonobo, and more, FORM is bringing in a wide variety of artists, speakers, authors, and activists for the weekend of May 10 – 12 in Arizona’s high desert.

A cornerstone ingredient in FORM’s annual success, the weekend’s jammed itinerary consists of talks, panels, workshops, immersive art, poetry, new technologies, and outdoor/wellness activities, each presented by renowned experts in their respective fields. This year’s most anticipated topics include Between Two Books—a conversation between Florence Welch and authors Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot and Ysra Daley-Ward, art workshops with African-American artist and performer at the festival, Lonnie Holley, and a poetry series curated by spoken word artist George Watsky. Other programming high points include a rare public demo of Tónandi—Sigur Rós’s mixed-reality project with tech innovators Magic Leap, as well as a conversation with Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement.

General admission tickets for FORM Arcosanti 2019 are sold out, however a limited number of glamping Patron Bundles remain available, which can cover up to four attendees. Learn more about FORM’s cultural programming and purchase last minute Patron Bundles here.

FORM Arcosanti is back in 2019 for a sixth year in Arizona’s high desert, and this year’s music and cultural programming may result in the event’s strongest outing yet. Leading the lineup this year was Florence + The Machine, kicking off their North American summer tour from the experimental micro-city. The rest of the lineup, now delivered in full, includes intimate performances by Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals, Pussy Riot, Baltimore rapper JPEGMAFIA, Bonobo performing a DJ set, Snail Mail, DJ Koze, and TOKiMONSTA.

Skrillex will make his annual appearance at the three-day creative gathering—a favored testing ground for new material, where he live debuted tracks like his “Humble” remix and “Agen Wida” in years past. While Hundred Waters‘ Trayer will perform a solo set, the band is noticeably absent from this year’s lineup, as they’ve performed at each of FORM’s last five editions.

Beyond the music curated for this year’s event, FORM’s cultural programming has been announced. This year’s billing includes a variety of panels, poetry, workshops and discussions covering topics like architecture, design, and social justice with Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, and much more. FORM 2019 will also feature Between Two Books—a conversation between Florence Welch and authors Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, Ysra Daley-Ward and more, as well as demos of Tónandi, Sigur Rós’s mixed-reality collaboration with tech startup Magic Leap.

FORM is slated for May 10 – 12 in Meyer, Arizona. See the full lineup below.

FORM Arcosanti is prepping a return to Arizona’s high desert in May, and, coinciding with Florence + The Machine‘s announcement of their upcoming North American summer tour, the band has been revealed to be the festival’s first headliner for the 2019 iteration. FORM, now in its sixth year, occupies Arizona’s unique micro-city, Arcosanti, and just like the host venue, the event has built a rich artistic history of being anything but ordinary in a short amount of time.

Past headliners have included Flying Lotus, Solange, and James Blake, along with annual performances by Skrillex and the festival’s curators and organizers, OWSLA-signed Hundred Waters. Florence, embarking on a 17-stop run alongside FORM alumni Blood Orange and Perfume Genius, is a a telling, and exciting lead announcement from FORM, signaling another impeccably programmed event slated for May 10 – 12 at Arcosanti.

FORM Arcosanti redefines what a festival can be each year.

Now, the Hundred Waters‘-curated FORM has announced a limited number of early bird passes are on sale for the festival’s 2019 edition. The festival has also shared stunning visuals that capture the 2018 edition and showcase the Arizona eco-city in an impeccably tantalizing light, albeit in just 60 seconds.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder, and in the case of Skrillex, this colloquialism runs true. Having more or less taken a step back from performing, Skrillex’s instead been kicking it into high gear in the studio.

His latest return to the stage was at one of the most underrated festivals in the world — the intimate, Hundred Waters-curated Arizona festival FORM Arcosanti — and it was a feverish testament to his continued versatility behind the decks.

What originally started as an application-only festival has since grown into a 1,000+ people event with utterly unparalleled company, and considering Skrilly’s performances are few and far between, one would hope he’d bring his A-game. Expectedly, he did. Gathered together in the Minds Garden, Skrillex transcended genre and proved that like fine wine, he’s only getting better with age.

Hundred Waters announce fifth annual FORM Arcosanti

This post was originally published on this site

Hundred Waters made a radical statement about the typical festival model with the launch of their FORM event series, now gearing up for its fifth annual installment. Hosted in Arizona at an artistic micro-community known as Arcosanti, the event’s curators have refined an entirely unique festival experience since 2014 that breaks down the artist-attendee barriers of a normal music event, and envelops all participants under the tightly-knit umbrella of artistry and social discourse for what is has become one of the most absorbing events of the year. Last year, the event grew to over 1,200 attendees and brought the likes of Skrillex, Solange, James Blake, and S U R V I V E to the high Arizona desert. In 2018 Hundred Waters and company will return to Arcosanti, officially announcing FORM with a new trailer ahead of next year’s event.

FORM is slated to run May 11 – 13, 2018 at Arcosanti with Hundred Waters returning for programming and curation duties. Past lineups have brought a spectrum-covering range of performers to the incredibly intimate camping venue, from Bonobo to Thundercat, Tokimonsta to Father John Misty. Details on this year’s lineup are still under wraps, but the OWSLA trio are likely to bring another diverse cast of friends along for FORM’s fifth edition.
