ComplexCon has announced they’re set to make their Aussie debut, and Melbourne is the lucky spot where it's all going down on April 27-28, 2024.

A collaboration between Complex Australia, Archetype, and Mushroom Group, ComplexCon Australia will bring together the best of what’s happening right across streetwear, sneakers, music, design, art, food and sport.

For those unfamiliar with ComplexCon, it's been an iconic annual event held in Long Beach, California, since 2016. It’s not just a festival; it's a fusion of the hottest trends and creative expressions that define today's global culture.

Each day will showcase interactive displays, exclusive streetwear and sneaker drops, live art, food, installations and exhibitions, live panel discussions, sports activations, and world-class live music from a superstar contemporary line-up.

Archetype Managing Partner, Andrew Montell, said of the major news: "Melbourne has played host to many amazing music, fashion, sporting and culinary moments, however no previous event (to my knowledge) has successfully brought all of these elements together at the international level and scale of ComplexCon Australia.”

“We aim to deliver ComplexCon in a way that is unique to our region, but also representative of where global culture is progressing to next.”

“It was always our aim to hold Australia’s first ever ComplexCon in Melbourne – it’s one of the world’s biggest cultural events of its kind and Melbourne is this country’s culture capital, making it the perfect host city.”

“We can’t wait for everyone to experience all that ComplexCon has to offer in April next year.”
