New Patron RV packages that sleep and feed up to 4 people

"When we were approaching FORM Arcosanti 2019 we had to make some hard decisions," FORM co-founder and Hundred Waters drummer Zach Tetrault said. "Do we sell more tickets to meet the growing demand? With the biggest artists we’ve ever had starting to commit to play next year, do we add a new main stage and pack a few thousand more people in? Nope. We decided to stay true to our roots. For 2019 we’ll stay small, intentional and vibrant as ever, while adding more for you to see, hear, and do. And just as in years prior, there will be no VIP sections and no overlapping sets. As a participant of FORM, you’re part of the magic, not just an observer."
FORM Arcosanti reimagines what a festival can be. Breathtakingly intimate performances with no overlapping sets. Immersive art and activities. Cliffside pool parties and rooftop yoga. All backdropped by Arcosanti’s otherworldly architecture and landscapes. Join FORM this May for an experience like no other.
With only 2,000 participants, no VIP sections and minimal waste, FORM is a uniquely intimate, sustainable, and community-oriented festival. Previous iterations have featured performers like Solange, James Blake, Beach House, Flying Lotus, Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty, Blood Orange, and Skrillex, as well as cultural partners like ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Campaign, and Phoenix Art Museum.
