Last year, Pharrell served as the ComplexCon's Cultural Director and Host Committee Chair. The ambitious polymath was a natural fit for the never-before-produced event that brought together pop culture, art, food, style, sports, music, and more. P believed in it from the jump and brought his idiosyncratic taste to the two-day festival, shaping it in fundamental ways.

For ComplexCon 2017, returning to the Long Beach Convention Center this Nov. 4 and 5, Pharrell is returning to the host committee to make his mark. The best way to understand what this means is to revisit everything he did last year, which touched on fashion, music, activism, and more.
