In 1970, Italian architect Paolo Soleri broke ground just 70 miles north of Phoenix on a vision of an alternative habitat for people who were intrigued by his philosophy of building an environmentally conscious "urban laboratory" that amalgamated architecture and ecology — a concept termed "arcology" by Soleri. This community, which he called Arcosanti, is the perfect setting for musicians, poets, artists, and fans to come together under the dazzling desert sky for a weekend of camping, dancing, and learning. FORM addresses some of the most frustrating parts of attending a music festival — camping and toilet conditions, obtrusive stages, overlapping set times, crowds — and corrects for them all. Every stage is set within the exquisite architecture that makes Arcosanti the otherworldly place that it is. The intimacy of the stages, set under ornately designed concrete apses, makes for a palpably connected experience for the fans and artists alike. FORM is what other music festivals purport to be by simply existing within its own means. Throughout each day, guests have the opportunity to enjoy every single set because there are no overlapping set times, allowing attendees to see the stunning range of performing artists. In 2019, attendees saw Fred Armisen perform a musical comedy set, the Russian anarchists Pussy Riot, and Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine) interview the celebrated poet Yrsa Daley-Ward, all in the same weekend.
