Kid Cudi will headline the two-day celebration of all things streetwear, pop culture and art.
“The enlightenment and empowerment of the individual” will be the theme of this year’s ComplexCon, the massive pop culture convention readying to take over Long Beach for the third consecutive year November 3-4.
Tens of thousands of fans gathered to attend the second annual ComplexCon that took place at the Long Beach Convention Center on November 4 and 5, a weekend filled with surprise celebrity appearances and exclusive merchandise.
The art, fashion and music mega-festival known as ComplexCon is just around the corner, with major influencers in streetwear, tech, contemporary art and more to land in Long Beach this weekend.
Guiding the festival this year will expectedly be Pharrell Williams, Takashi Murakami and Marc Ecko sitting on the host committee, among other influential people.
Aside from the activations in a league of their own, like Nike’s basketball court and A Bathing Ape’s almost ceiling-tall walls showcasing Travis Scott’s collaboration Lamborghini, we traipsed through the ComplexCon streetwear jungle and picked out the five best, and five worst setups. It’s amazing what these brands accomplished, with most of them nestled into the smallest of spaces, to catch the attention of the thousands of attendees wandering the ComplexCon convention space. Here’s what we think worked and what didn’t.
ComplexCon drew thousands of attendees to the Long Beach Entertainment & Convention Center, where, expectedly, most arrived dressed to impress, wearing their favorite streetwear brands styled to a “T.”
ComplexCon is set to be the Agenda Show for consumers—a feast for the eyes, ears and mouths of the 15,000 streetwear and pop culture fans and aficionados expected to overtake the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center this weekend. Everything seems to be falling into place perfectly and it’s with great anticipation that the Post was able to chat with ComplexCon Event Director Neil Wright and Complex Chief Content Officer Noah Callahan-Bever.
