The lineup for this year’s FORM Arcosanti music and arts festival has been announced! The festival returns to the urban laboratory of Arcosanti, Arizona for the weekend of May 10-12, 2019.
FORM reimagines what a festival can be. Breathtakingly intimate performances with no overlapping sets. An inspiring community of 2000 participants. No VIP sections. Immersive art & activities. Cliffside pool parties & rooftop yoga. All backdropped by Arcosanti’s otherworldly architecture & landscapes.
Headlining this year’s event will be Florence + the Machine, Anderson .Paak, Skrillex and Kaytranada. They’ll be joined by some LIVE faves like Bonobo doing a DJ set, Khruangbin, American Football and even that crazy crew behind Pussy Riot. Here’s the poster:
Here’s some other stuff that will be happening there:
Additionally, FORM’s engaging and inspired cultural program will include talks, panels, workshops, immersive art, poetry, new technologies, and outdoor/wellness activities with topics ranging from environmentalism to social justice, architecture, design, and more. FORM’s 2019 cultural programming will include Between Two Books, a conversation between Florence Welch (of Florence + The Machine) and authors Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot, Ysra Daley-Ward and more; a Poetry Series with poets hand-selected by slam poetry champ and spoken word artist George Watsky, including Yrsa Daley-Ward, Aja Monet, and others; demos of Tónandi, Sigur Rós’s mixed-reality project with tech innovators Magic Leap; a performance and conversation with Patrisse Cullors, artist & co-founder of Black Lives Matter; art workshops with Renowned African-American artist and 2019 performer Lonnie Holley; and much more to be announced.
