Skrillex, Kid Cudi and designer/DJ Virgil Abloh have signed on for night one of Complex’s inaugural festival ComplexCon. Touted as the “first-ever cultural World’s Fair,” the two-day event — taking place Nov. 5-6 at Long Beach Convention Center’s Arena in California — will blend music and style with sports and pop culture via concerts and panel discussions.
“The music portion of ComplexCon is obviously a very important component of this experience,” said Noah Callahan-Bever, chief content officer of Complex in a release. “Over the past 14 years, we have been the authority on identifying emerging stars and this lineup has been carefully selected to reflect that. Plus, it’s gonna be dope.”
Earlier this year, Complex announced that Pharrell Williams and Takashi Murakami would serve as co-chairs for ComplexCon. In addition to performing, DJ/producer Skrillex will join them on the host committee as well as bring an interactive art piece to the festival in celebration of his creative collective OWSLA’s fifth anniversary.
Performers for ComplexCon’s second night will be announced at a later date.
