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.

The debut single from Anderson .Paak’s forthcoming third studio album, “Tints” offered a funky first taste of Oxnard sound. .Paak now expands that palette via the release of “Who R U?,” the second song to precede the production, which is slated to arrive on November 16. Comparatively more aggressive in its flow than the Kendrick Lamar-assisted, ’70s-inflected “Tints,” “Who R U?” sees .Paak vigorously spit bars, in a clear credit to the fluidity of his hip-hop artistry.

The stylistic differences across “Tints” and “Who R U?” suggests an overall diversity of construction to come on the Dr. Dre-produced Oxnard. The album’s feature list is somewhat of a sonic sampler of prominent rappers, ranging from J. Cole to Pusha-T to Snoop Dogg.

Anderson .Paak is on a roll, and he’s ready to continue his winning streak with the launch of his own aptly titled new Beats 1 show .Paak House Radio on Apple Music. Ahead of the ultra-anticipated release of his forthcoming Oxnard LP, the R&B star will grace the internet airwaves with four episodes of interviews, jam sessions, freestyle cyphers, and more — all with his stellar live band The Free Nationals riding shotgun.

The first episode landed, and the free-wheeling format of the show will continue to give .Paak an extra platform get fans in the groove ahead of his November 16 album drop. The album will be the first solo Anderson .Paak project since 2016’s critically lauded Malibu LP, and the hype is currently at an all time high with a fresh new single and music video for the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Tints.” With a radio show on air, and album up his sleeve, and a steadily successful promotion junket in the rearview mirror, its safe to say Anderson .Paak is riding quite the wave right now.
