SEPT. 3RD: Hiero Imperium Announces Inaugural Hiero Day (Event)

Legendary music crew The Hieroglyphics (Del the Funk Homosapien, Souls of Mischief, Casual, Pep Love, and Domino), in conjunction with Parish Entertainment Group, are pleased to announce the first annual Hiero Day music festival on Monday, September 3rd from 11am-6pm to celebrate the roots of hip hop music and the city of their hometown, Oakland, California. The event will feature Oakland vendors, food trucks, a family area, a skate area, and performances from The Hieroglyphics, Blackalicious, Planet AsiaMoe Green, and many more.

This inaugural event will become an annual celebration showcasing a diversity of innovative, multicultural, and local music. The festival will host Bay Area-based acts on the main stage, which will be located at the intersection of San Pablo and 17th Street, two blocks away from City Hall in the heart of downtown Oakland. The block party is designed to celebrate Oakland and support local businesses, the community and independent hip hop culture. The all-ages, environmentally conscious, free festival is committed to showcasing independent and emerging artists who live and work in the community. Long recognized for fostering a unifying atmosphere while maintaining a commitment to groundbreaking music, this Hiero Day festival is an extension of the wide appeal the Hieroglyphics crew has maintained on a friendship level for 30 years and as an official crew since 1991. The festival will remain free and accessible to all, regardless of income, thanks to generous sponsors who will be announced soon.
