News: Hieroglyphics Announce 4th Annual Hiero Day in Oakland to Take Place on September 7th
The Legendary Rap Group To Provide Full Day of Fun for All Ages
For the fourth year in a row, The Hieroglyphics are producing one of the largest festivals in their hometown of Oakland, California. Centered around a full day of musical performances on three stages, the festival also offers food and drinks from local vendors, a skate park, graffiti wall, an area for b-boy battles, a kids’ area, and much more. Last year’s attendance topped over 22,000 people, warranting a change in access to the event. The all day event will include performances by Compton’s Most Wanted, P-Lo, Kool John, and Jay Ant of HBK Gang, Luniz, Peanut Butter Wolf, Nx Worries, The Coup, Domo Genesis, Res, and many more.
Hiero Day 2015 will be hosted at the intersection of 3rd and Chestnut Street in Oakland from 11am until 7pm on Monday September 7th, 2015. Due to exceeded capacity and expenses at last year’s event, an entry fee of $19.93 will be charged for general admission. The event is expected to sell out – tickets may be purchased in advance at https://hieroday2015.eventbrite.com. However, youth who are active in their communities as members of a Bay Area-based nonprofit organization need only to present their membership ID to gain free access. For anyone who needs financial assistance, they are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a 250-500 word essay about what they do to improve their community.

Hiero Imperium Records:
Founded in 1997 in Oakland, California, Hiero Imperium Records was founded by artists Del The Funky Homosapien, Casual, Pep Love, Domino, and the group Souls of Mischief, consisting of members A-Plus, Opio, Phesto and Tajai. After releasing albums on several major labels, the collective established their own independent Hieroglyphics Imperium label, website, and merch company in 1997, and are credited as creating the blueprint for independent rap labels. Few other rap collectives have withstood the test of time and are still considered as vibrant, respected, and talented as when they first stepped on the scene 20+ years ago. They are also credited as being one of the first hip hop groups to work with skate, snow, and surf companies. Created by Del the Funky Homosapien, their “third eye logo” is considered the third most recognized music logo according to Rolling Stone Magazine, and has been seen tattooed on fans all over the world.
