On November 5th and 6th, the visually dazzling world of Complex will become a reality. ComplexCon will literally be a festival dedicated to the pop culture that surrounds us. Imagine a wonderland where contemporary trends like music, art, fashion, food, and technology are under one roof (Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA specifically). The Complex brand always has a unique approach in viewing our world. I'm excited to see that they're materializing that "counter culture spirit" in the form of a convention. The convention will be like a bunch of kids on the playground and I'm all for it.
To start, look at this music lineup...
These are some of the weirdest souls in the music industry today but in a good way. The melodic selection is simply thematic. It fits the festival's overall image of futuristic possibilities. It's almost like the convention will have an original score (which would be cool if possible). Kanye headlining is the main attraction point, since a great deal see him as the unofficial leader next world movement.
Besides the rhythmic vibrations, a great deal of familiar faces will make their way to Long Beach to lead in next generation discussion on style and innovation. Pharrell Williams, DJ Mustard, Raekwon, Pusha T, Karizza Sanchez, Ronnie Flag, Steve Akoi, The Game, Tony Hawk, Vince Staples, Wondagurl, Jesse Williams, and many more humans will be in attendance. But hey, I'm sure there's no definite amount. Maybe some folks might come through with the cameo, you never know with Complex.
Mr. Williams' face says it all and welcomes all with his kind peace sign gesture. The blending of ideas is very important and Complex is really expounding on that essence. Though their magazine has had major impact on my life growing up, I love seeing the growth the brand continues to have and how it impacts others lives. ComplexCon all the way, and I hope it's here to stay.
