HIERO DAY, voted “Best Hip-Hop Festival of the East Bay”, is a one-day music festival combining community, local food, music, apparel, live art, crafts and hip-hop culture. 2018 marks 7 years of the independent festival bringing thousands out to celebrate all that is good about the beautiful City of Oakland. HIERO DAY hosts 3 stages showcasing over 40 local and internationally renowned artists from Hip-Hop, Jazz, Electronic, Alternative and R&B genres…for the cost of $19.93!
We are excited this year’s event lands on the Oakland proclaimed holiday "HIERO DAY", September 3rd (9.3 = 93 til) – and will return to the 3rd Street location where the proclamation was received by former Mayor Jean Quan.
HIERO DAY plays an integral role in the Oakland music festival culture which exists in the city today. It is recognized for fostering a unifying atmosphere while maintaining a commitment to groundbreaking music and community development.
This community festival is an all age event. Children 7 and under are free.
"The lineup is highlighted by Hieroglyphics, The Roots’ Black Thought, The Pharcyde, Cash Money Records producer Mannie Fresh, and rapper Freddie Gibbs. Local talent includes Oakland MC Young Gully, local DJs Shellheart and Red Corvette, Golden State Warriors DJ D Sharp, as well as hyphy producers DJ Fresh and Traxamillion."
