On November 5 and 6, ComplexCon is taking over Long Beach, California, to offer a glimpse into the future of art, music, film, food, and fashion.
Often described as the “first-ever cultural World’s Fair,” ComplexCon will bring together an exclusive selection of over a hundred pop-up shops and brand activations to its show floor. Cult favorites will be debuting collaborations, launching new products, and releasing exclusive drops – all completely worthy of the hype. Nike, for example, will be curating a space just for ComplexCon, taking over 7,500 square feet, to create a fully immersive experience into the sneaker and apparel world that they do best.
Some other brands planning to attend include: Billionaire Boy’s Club, RSVP Gallery, PUMA, Jason Markk, UNDEFEATED, Bodega, UNION LA, BAIT, and Modernica.
As if the brand list isn’t enough to be excited about, the music line-up is only getting bigger. The current line-up for night one includes Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, and a guest DJ set by Virgil Abloh. The list keeps growing so visit Complexcon.com to stay updated on the latest.
It’s important to note that this curated convention goes beyond just exclusive shopping and explosive concerts. Each day of ComplexCon will feature more than seven intimate keynote speeches, fireside chats, and panels from some of the most dynamic minds shaping popular culture today. These sessions include notable figures such as A$AP Rocky, artist; Daniel Arsham, architect (of Snarkitecture); Jon Buscemi, designer; and producer DJ Mustard. Over a dozen other top names – in music, fashion, art, film, and technology – will be in the panel mix as well.
The goal of ComplexCon is to create an experience that will elevate your understanding of what our culture is and what it can be. When you think about all that comprises this weekend-long event, from the brands, to the art, to the food, and the immersive activations, I’d say a memorable experience is a safe bet.
