Event Description:

The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) will host its first-ever Park Jam outdoor festival on Saturday, July 21 from 12 to 5 pm, including a headlining performance by experimental Hip-Hop group Clipping, featuring Oakland-born actor, writer, and musician Daveed Diggs. Diggs also stars in, produced, and co-wrote the upcoming feature film Blindspotting, which was filmed in Oakland. The film debuted to rave reviews at the 2018 Sundance and SXSW film festivals and will be released nationwide next month.

The inaugural all-ages event, presented in partnership with Noise Pop and Oakhella, will take place in the Museum’s back gardens where visitors can enjoy food, drinks, turntable battles, DJ sets, and more. Hosted by Oakland’s own Ryan Nicole, enjoy live performances by MADlines, Knuckle Neck Tribe, live graffiti murals by Refa One and Aerosol Art, and a special tribute to the late Pam the Funkstress, also known as Purple Pam.

Tickets to Park Jam also include access to special exhibition RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom, open for just three more weeks after the festival through August 12, 2018. Advance tickets are available online at museumca.org/parkjam.
