FORM Arcosanti 2018 lineup

FORM Arcosanti is a art and music festival curated by Hundred Waters that is held in the desert community of Arcosanti, Arizona. The band first formed it in 2014 after performing at music festivals all over the world. They were seeking a deeper sense of community, collaboration and creative inspiration than is felt at the typical music festival.

Arcosanti is an urban planning experiment located in the deserts of Arizona. It was founded by urban architect Paolo Soleri and his wife Colly in 1965 in Paradise Valley, which is north of Scottsdale. They wanted to test his theories about arcology, or architecture plus ecology. The compact eco-city is carless and boasts unique architecture of mixed use buildings, public spaces and a swimming pool — a must in the blazing heat of the Sonoran desert.

This event is 21 years and over only. Three day passes include a campsite for you and your friends. But parking is $20 plus tax. You may choose from add ons such as RV parking or glamping at an additional cost. The VIP package, or the Patron Bundle, is available at different tiers, which comes with luxury accommodations in Patron village, eight drink tickets and air conditioned showers.

If you feel like Burning Man has gotten too commercial then perhaps you would be interested in FORM Arcosanti. Since it takes place in Arizona there will be a lot of sun accompanied by a dry heat. So don’t forget about sun protection such as an umbrella, sunglasses and sunscreen.

Tickets to FORM Arcosanti 2018 are available now from Eventbrite for $20 to $3,500.
