Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

The FORM Arcosanti festival is back for its third year, and the organizers released the lineup today.

The festival is eschewing headliners in the traditional sense, but there are some big names slotted for the festivities, which will take place Friday, May 13, through Sunday, May 15, at the Paolo Soleri-built Arcosanti outside Phoenix. 

Skrillex, Four Tet, Bonobo (DJ), Perfume Genius, Dan Deacon, and more will play. Phoenix's own Mija, who's hot right now like only Mugatu could imagine, also will bring her talents to the desert.

Admission to the festival is free, but all attendees must apply for access. That's right: It's not just the lineup curated by the organizers; it's the audience, too.

The application process is no joke, either. As of now, prospective concertgoers need to answer five questions (no more than 250 words each), including "What roles(s) does creativity play in your life?" and "In what ways do you see yourself contributing to the experience?" 

Applicants must also provide their employment information, links to any projects that might be illustrative of their personality, and links to social media pages.
