In today’s world flooded with music festivals left and right, we’re always looking for the next unique, creative experience that will blow our minds. One special festival / retreat that’s doing it different than all the others is FORM Arcosanti, an event curated by OWSLA’s Hundred Waters, that takes place in Arizona's eco-city of Arcosanti. FORM will be returning May 11-13 this year – see more info here.
Unlike most festivals, to attend FORM Arcosanti you actually have to submit a short application in order to be considered. According to the press release, "the short application is designed to promote diversity, integrity, and creativity amongst those populating the historical architectural landmark for the weekend." With a very limited amount of tickets, you can be sure that there will be enough space for you to dance and move about freely as you so please.
Even though we’re talking about a relatively small festival, the artists they’ve announced are huge. The headliners include Chance The Rapper, Skrillex, Charli XCX, Beach House, Daniel Caesar and Blood Orange with appearances from Mija, Hundred Waters, Knox Fortune, Tennyson, Sophie and more.
Many music festivals have an art aspect to them, but FORM Arcosanti really does everything they can to embrace it. FORM will include a Cultural Series consisting of talks, panels, workshops, experiential art, new technologies and outdoor/wellness activities in addition to their eclectic music lineup. They are highlighting numerous philanthropy partners (see above), including Chance The Rapper's Social Works, where all proceeds with be donated this year.
