It's here.

The complete lineup and programming schedule for FORM Arcosanti 2017 was released on April 12. And for its upcoming edition, which takes place May 12 through 14, the exclusive arts and music festival will bring together Solange, Skrillex, and Father John Misty, and feature politically charged panel discussions, film screenings, and art installations.

Non-musical programming will focus on topics including "environmental awareness, social justice, and activism through creativity," according to a release.

That's why FORM is teaming up with Planned Parenthood, which will host a panel; Phoenix Art Museum, which will present work by Lauren Strohacker and Kendra Sollars; Pathway to Paris, a group of creatives and academics focused on climate justice; Charlie Sextro, senior programmer of Sundance Film Festival; and Saint Heron, an arts collective set to present, among other things, a "musically botanical experience."

Sounds pretty fitting, considering that the festival takes place at Arcosanti, an experimental community founded about an hour north of Phoenix by the late architect Paolo Soleri. Soleri pioneered the concept of arcology, blending architecture with ecology, and he created Arcosanti to bring the concept to life.

Curated by the band Hundred Waters, FORM 2017 will host 1,500 attendees. You can apply to attend through the FORM website, and if accepted, pay $389 to access events, camping, and other amenities. Those who'd rather skip the application process can purchase a patron package, which costs $2,500, includes luxury camping for two as well as food and beverages, and is available in limited quantities.

Other festival offerings include group hiking excursions, yoga classes, stargazing, and an ENVELOP 360° 3D sound space installation.

Here's the complete schedule, day by day.
