It's nearly here.
In less than four weeks, Complex goes IRL with the first-ever ComplexCon, a two-day celebration of our culture in Long Beach, California. On Nov. 5 and 6, at the Long Beach Convention Center, we'll offer a glimpse into the future of art, music, film, food, and fashion. Our aim is to create an experience that will elevate your understanding of what our culture is and what it can be.
To better prepare you, our Oct/Nov 2016 issue is dedicated to ComplexCon, and opposite current cover star Kylie Jenner, we've highlighted some of the brightest stars of our inaugural festival. In the issue, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami explains the creative process; headlining mainstage musical performer Skrillex shares his keys to success; French Montana, a featured guest at ComplexCon, discusses his upcoming projects now that MC4 has been scrapped; Snarkitecture, the creative duo creating an art installation for ComplexCon, describe their rise to fame; and Danny Brown, who will be making special appearance, discusses the multiyear writing process for his latest album, Atrocity Exhibition.
The other guests gracing the cover of our Oct/Nov 2016 issue include ComplexCon Cultural Director/Executive Chair Pharrell Williams, mainstage musical performers Kid Cudi, Travis Scott, Virgil Abloh; plus the Pigeons & Planes stage performers Chief Keef, Metro Boomin, Lil Yachty and the Sailing Team, Lolawolf, Kamaiyah, Cousin Stizz, and Tunji Ige; and, of course, ASAP Rocky, who will be hosting a space dedicated to his art and design collective AWGE.
