Tired of festival announcements yet? Good because here’s some more, and this one is in particular is looking pretty good.
FORM Acrosanti just announced their lineup for 2017 and it is one of the most exciting and diverse yet announced.
The festival its located 65 miles north of Phoenix in Arizona’s high desert (stay hydrated folks), in the residence known as Acrosanti which is described as a “non-profit urban experiment in community, innovative design and environmental accountability.”
While the “town” is mainly just an experiment/case study for architects and engineers, they have a music festival that attracts significantly more people, which is probably what you’re here for.
This year’s festival will see a diverse lineup of some of the most exciting and talented artists in music. Solange, who dropped what was arguably the best album of 2016 in A Seat at the Table (and helped co-write this incredible Dirty Projects song), is slated as one of the headliners and will be joined by Father John Misty who is already having a very productive 2017 ahead of the release of his Pure Comedy album. Future Islands, who also have a new album in the works along with several festival headlinings, will round out the list of headliners.
In addition to the three previously mentioned artists, noteworthy artists such as James Black, Skrillex and Thundercat will join the lineup along with a variety of others.
Don’t get too excited just yet, attending this festival is a little harder than asking your parents for Bonnaroo money. FORM Acrosanti aims to keep the “intimate, curated group” of attendants around 1500 people. Want to be curated? Potential festival-goers must submit a short application on the FORM website, where you will receive a code for tickets and camping information upon selection.
But if you’re the type of person looking for a shortcut, FORM Acrosanti will offer a limited number of “Patron Packages,” which will cost you a whopping $1150 but will include luxury tent accommodations, meals and beverages. FORM Acrosanti also offers “full scholarships” (why can’t more festivals do this?) for select applicants in financial need.
Check out the full lineup below and head over to their site to learn more about applications.
