The concert that started at 10am and ended at midnight featured Malaysian rock, contemporary,metal,alternatives and blues bands including independent rap-rock band Pop Shuvit, Love Me Butch and Deja Voodoo Spells.

The concert main purpose was to convey message through freedom of expression and music as the vehicle of empowerment and spreading messages on:
1. Drug free society
2. Implanting responsibility and awareness to save this planet
3. Advocate and educate future generation about current environmental issues

However, even with all the excitement for the rock bands, Sumandak the 4 year old baby elephant brought by the Sabah Wildlife Department, born and bred in the Lok Kawi zoo in Kota Kinabalu was still the centre of attraction ;)
