Skrillex is also scheduled to be headlining the event on Saturday night. On Sunday the producer will be on a panel alongside director of The Fifth Element, Luc Besson, and moderator Jinx.
The OWSLA team is bringing their Chinatown popup shop to the exposition as well. Debuting their winter collection, OWSLA’s pieces were designed with the help of visual designer Sus Boy, and artist Luke Vicious. Many of the garments feature one-of-a-kind hand drawn or painted images by Vicious himself. Some even come straight from Skrillex’s closet.
The event will also feature acts from Kid Cudi, Virgil Abloh, Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg and more.
Once again, Skrillex has prove he is on the cutting edge of the music industry. Expanding beyond production, the musician's development in creating a fully immersive experience for a viewer adds a new layer of innovation.
