FORM Arcosanti 2018

FORM Arcosanti, the annual 3-day creative retreat & festival curated by Hundred Waters, has announced the initial music lineup, cultural programming partners, and social impact partner for its 2018 edition, which will take place the weekend of May 11-13, 2018 in the desert eco-city of Arcosanti, AZ. Surrounded by iconic architecture and landscapes, an intimate community of participants will have the opportunity to experience performances by Chance The Rapper, Charli XCX, Beach House, Fleet Foxes, Skrillex, Courtney Barnett, Blood Orange, Daniel Caesar, Hundred Waters, Mount Kimbie, Willow, Dirty Projectors, Mitski, Zola Jesus, Jenny Hval, and many more in a wholly unique setting – see full list of announced performers below.

In addition to music programming, FORM will include a Cultural Series consisting of talks, panels, workshops, experiential art, new technologies, and outdoor/wellness activities with topics ranging from environmentalism to social justice, technology, architecture, design, art, and more. FORM’s 2018 Cultural Series partners include: ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Campaign, NeueHouse, and UN Equator Initiative, with additional partners to be announced soon. FORM Arcosanti have also deepened their commitment to philanthropy, with all proceeds from this year’s event going to SocialWorks, a Chicago-based youth empowerment charity founded by Chance The Rapper. SocialWorks aims to empower youth through the arts, education, and civic engagement while fostering leadership, accessibility, and positivity within the youth throughout Chicago.

FORM was created by the band Hundred Waters after performing at major music festivals around the world. They believed a leaner alternative could inspire greater connection and creativity amongst artists and friends. Soon after visiting the experimental eco-city of Arcosanti while touring in 2013, it became home to the first FORM experience.
