FORM 2018 – Day Split Line Up Released
After touring globally and playing at a variety of festivals, the band Hundred Waters yearned for more. They felt there was a need for a deeper sense of personal connection at these events, creative inspiration and communal collaboration. From this vision, FORM festival was born in 2013 and taking place May 11-13 this year.

Staged under the stars, amongst the cacti in the unique desert eco-city, Arcosanti outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Arcosanti is the brainchild of famed late Architect, Paolo Soleri. The purpose behind Arcosanti and Soleri’s concept of “arcology” was to create a hyper-dense city, designed to: maximize human interaction with ready access to shared, cost-effective infrastructural services; conserve water and reduce sewage; minimize the use of energy, raw materials and land; reduce waste and environmental pollution.
The FORM daily music lineup has just been announced with some returning and reputable acts like: Beach House, Skrillex, Chance the Rapper, Fleet Foxes, Blood Orange, Charli XCX, Courtney Barnett, and The Black Madonna.
For 3 days and nights participants will experience not only live music, but also talks/panels, workshops, experiential art, screenings, and yoga to round out the cultural programming. Talks and discussions will be held by the HRC, Planned Parenthood, The Phoenix Art Museum to name a few.
