The cultural hypebeast itself is roaring thru Long Beach this weekend like a Supreme wearing Godzilla.

ComplexCon, brainchild of hiphop culture conglomerate Complex Magazine & Complex Media Network. The concept was to recreate the internet’s convergence culture in real life. No small task.

Somehow it happened last year. 

And this year, it’s even bigger. And Wanderset is officially invading.

The Long Beach Convention center will feature booths with over 150 of the hottest streetwear, luxe, and urban leisure brands from everyone from mainstream monsters like NIKE to streetwear capsules from Off-White, Fear Of God, and UNDEFEATED.

The PUMA Booth At ComplexCon.

ComplexCon is an expertly curated convention and festival bringing the world of Complex Media Network to life. This is the Millennial’s World’s Fair. The minds behind Complex have come together with a Host Committee led by the Cultural Director/Executive Chair Pharrell Williams, legendary artist Takashi Murakami, Off-White designer and founder Virgil Abloh, Colette co-founder Sarah Andelman, latin superstar J. Balvin, and actor/activist Jaden Smith.

Jazz Cartier performs on hiphop blog PIGEONS & PLANES powered stage.

Performances will be from N.E.R.D., Gucci Mane, MIA, Young Thug, DJ Khalid, ASAP Ferg, Dram, A-Track, Smokepurpp, and many others. In addition to the music performances will be talks, roundtables, and collectives, featuring celebrity chefs, TV personalities, Gen X & Y thought leaders, and more. Even internet marketing wiz Gary V (who’s dropping his line of sneakers via K-Swiss) is in on the action.

Rapper’s Action Bronson, The Game, and Wiz Khalifa smoke and talk about the emerging weed culture, and the influence the weed-conomy has on the fashion, tech, and music space.

Wanderset will be doing live broadcasts via social platforms, dropping “insider” 360 media, and curating rare and exciting pieces, capsules and limited edition collaborations from the 2 day circus in SoCal.

Stay tuned.
