This spring, the inaugural year of Goldenvoice's latest festival invention, Blurry Vision Fest, will be hitting Oakland, Calif. Once your tickets are in order for Blurry Vision Fest 2018, what's next is choosing who you must see out of the stellar lineup.

Blurry Vision Fest will take place May 12-13 in Oakland's Middle Harbor Shoreline Park. You can get your tickets right here on AXS.

His music is a variety of styles that ranges from rap to Caribbean-influenced funk.
NxWorries, a collaboration between the producer Knxwledge and the rapper Anderson.Paak, has been nailed down for Sunday at Blurry Vision Fest. Knxwledge, famous in his own regard, is often known for producing with Kendrick Lamar. Grammy-nominated Paak makes up the second half of NxWorries, and together, the group have received nothing but critical acclaim since their recent debut.
One of many breakout artists on the billing for Blurry Vision Fest, Migos is a hip hop trio from Georgia that currently has all of the hype.

Most notably, Migos are responsible for the popular dance move "dabbing."
This Texas-originated group, led by Kevin Abstract, was formed via an internet chat forum for Kanye West fans. Since then, the group faced a couple of lineup changes and album releases, but Abstract has kept the helm steady either way. Having recently been signed to RCA Records, it seems like Brockhampton can look forward to bigger and better things -- so now is your chance to catch them on the way up.
Making waves all last year across the pop world, SZA earned the most Grammy nominations of any female artist for her debut album, as well as spending much of 2017 on tour. She kept her roll going straight into this year, featuring a single on the soundtrack for the blockbuster hit film "Black Panther." SZA makes an exceptional choice for Saturday's headliner at Blurry Vision Fest.
