UPDATE (5/8/2019, 2:00 p.m.): A rep for FORM confirmed that Tirzah, Mulatu Astatke, and JPEGMAFIA have all had to pull out of the festival due respectively to visa issues, health problems, and "unforeseen circumstances." They've been replaced on the bill by Robert Glasper, Vieux Farka Toure, Smoke Signals, and Batry Powr (aka Nicole Miglis of Hundred Waters).

UPDATE (5/8/2019, 12:55 p.m.): Added Louise Chen, Julianna Barwick, Batry Powr, Durante, and Tuff Ghosts.

At long last, the artsy-fartsy, hippy-dippy, mindful madness of FORM will return to Arcosanti for another year of extremely chill vibes. Florence + The Machine, Skrillex, Bonobo, American Football, and many more will play during the three-day festival, but before you head out to the desert, you may want to know when they'll be performing.

Thankfully, FORM were kind enough to release this year's schedule to us early. There are a couple of surprises — Fred Armisen at the Amphitheater on Sunday! — but what's really impressive is the unexpected number of nonmusical activities, everything from morning yoga sessions and horoscope readings to live podcasts and panel discussions. You may just come away from FORM a fully actualized human being.


Check below for a complete list of performances, panels, activities, activities, and whatever else FORM has in store. This is the most complete schedule currently available, but we will update this post if any changes occur.
