The windswept form of the festival tower acts as an informal gathering place and wayfinding marker at the heart of the festival village. Based on strict geometries incorporating musical harmonies, the tower's superstructure is constructed from salvaged and reclaimed materials, with the foundation completely removable if there is future desire to relocate the marker's position.
