our commitment

Our founders had the dream of creating a multidisciplinary music, art and technology show that would unify live music with visual artists, performing arts, site-specific commissions, and architectural interventions, and would aim to encourage discovery, spark curiosity, and build community. FORMAT is a new type of festival which is a departure from the norm -- created with the intention of supporting artists from around the world, and most importantly built to provide people with a memory that they will hold onto for the rest of their lives.

This show is home grown and has been developed in partnership with the community of Bentonville and NWA. We hope our festival goers will discover everything that the magical region of Oz has to offer. We look forward to seeing you in Bentonville this fall!

the Artists & Musicians

We want FORMAT to become a space for your expressions and experiential intentions - a platform to create the unimaginable, outside of the normal boxes society places us into.

the Community of Oz

We hope that through our local artist competitions, artist workshops, open call performance participation, and general job opportunities, we will provide a platform for artistic and work development in the region.

THE LAND

Sustainability and greening efforts are at the core of our show, and FORMAT is committed to working with local partners to make sure our footprint is as low as possible.
