The selected participants will be announced soon.

Established in 2015 by Festival of Voices, One Eye On The Stranger is an exclusive opportunity which pairs an iconic musician with a selection of emerging artists.

The once in a lifetime opportunity includes return flights to Tasmania from each capital city, accommodation retreat and food provisions on the majestic Bruny Island, plus a wilderness tour by boat to Bruny Island.
