The inaugural ComplexCon kicked off today, bringing art, music, food, technology, and more together under one roof in Long Beach, CA. Naturally, we were most excited about the Pigeons & Planes stage presented by Infiniti, and our lineup of rising artists and established stars. Day 1 is in the books, and everyone killed it—thanks to Chantel Jeffries, Johan, special guest Mr. Hudson, Max Wonders, Saint JHN, Khalid, Smino, Chase B, THEY., MadeinTYO, Jazz Cartier, Metro Boomin, and all the fans who made today so special.

Johan started the live music on our stage, and brought out special guest Mr Hudson.

Saint JHN flew from Brooklyn, New York for this show, and his energy was crazy.

With his Saint Laurent boots and studded jacket Saint JHN came through like a rock star.

 

You can tell @saintjhn got it doe. #ComplexCon

Young El Paso, TX singer Khalid brought a full band with him. This was his first ever show...Wow.

 

"Let's Go" is the definition of a jam. Khalid is on his way. @thegr8khalid @complexcon #complexcon

Smino is one of our favorite rising artists and he proved why with another razor-sharp performance.

Dude can really rap.

Chase B took the energy up to another level.

Genre-defying L.A. based artists THEY. tore it up. And those visuals are perfect.

MadeinTYO brought "Uber Everywhere" and the rest of his catalog to life for the crowd.

Secret guest Jazz Cartier blew the crowd away.

The Toronto rapper went hard.

Metro Boomin was our Day 1 headliner and the crowd was huge.

 

BEAUTIFUL MORNING #ComplexCon @metroboomin @complexcon
