Additionally, a limited number of Patron Bundles are available starting at $1750, which include luxury glamping accommodations at Arcosanti, meals & beverages, and more for up to four guests.
FORM was created in 2013 by the band Hundred Waters when they made a stop at the architectural mecca while on tour.

Hailed by critics alike, this 3-day experience provides an intimate interaction between fans and artists that accentuates the beauty of a live performance under the desert stars.
