Georgia fields’ Astral Debris and residency
Ever wanted to collaborate on an album with Georgia Fields? Realise this dream: she’s offering some unique opportunities for supporters of her Pozible campaign. It’s not just the standard album pre-order for fans: rewards include a custom-decorated tambourine, tickets to an exclusive stargazing evening, and a personal song written and filmed by Georgia.
Astral Debris will see Georgia collaborating with Tim Shiel, an electronic music producer who has worked with the likes of Faux Pas, Gotye and Bertie Blackman. The campaign closes midday June 12, so donate to the Pozible campaign here!
If you want to check out the real deal before you donate, why not head along to the Retreat Hotel in Brunswick every Tuesday night in May? Each week will see a different supporter: Matty Vehl on the 13th, Hollie Joyce the week after and JD Love on the 27th.
