FORMAT is a multidisciplinary experience unifying over eighty live music acts with two dozen visual, performance, and institutional artists from around the world. Set on 250 acres of a natural landing strip surrounded by a forested ravine, it is just five minutes from downtown Bentonville, AR. The festival aims to encourage discovery, spark curiosity, and build community.
Oz is the heart of the vibrant cultural region of Bentonville, and greater Northwest Arkansas. The rapidly growing area is host to a vibrant arts and culture scene, ranging from world class museums and cultural events to over 500 miles of biking trails and a plethora of Farm-to-Table culinary experiences to discover.
FORMAT will be an onsite and offsite lodging festival. Whether you choose luxury camping, local hotel stays, or a home rental with friends, all are very close in proximity, with campsites being directly on the festival grounds.
