Curated by Los Angeles band Hundred Waters, FORM will return to Arcosanti, an experimental eco-city located about an hour north of Phoenix, from Friday, May 11, through Sunday, May 13.
The annual event is renowned (and sometimes poked fun at) for its experience-centered, immersive approach. Attendance is so limited they call it a "micro-festival." Participants camp — or glamp, depending on how much they're willing to spend. And attendees can partake in yoga classes, attend genre-spanning musical performances, and stumble upon artwork installed throughout the desert grounds.
This year's no exception. The 2018 lineup features Chance the Rapper, Courtney Barnett, Amen Dunes, Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, and Blood Orange.
Arts and cultural programming will include talks, workshops, outdoor activities, and art installations. Participating organizations at this year's festival will include the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Phoenix Art Museum, Palabra, and The Whole Story. More programming details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets to this year's festival range from $350 for a single non-camping pass to $2,499 for a two-person patron bundle that's all-inclusive. (Sales have ended for three- and four-person patron bundles.) Complete details are available via Eventbrite.
Here's the day-by-day schedule for FORM:
Chance the Rapper
The Black Madonna
Blood Orange (solo)
Jonsi, Alex Somers, and Paul Corley
Sandy (Alex G)
(CEP) Caroline Polachek
Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra
Charlie XCX (with special guest A.G. Cook)
