Opening the Alice Festival once again in 2008 saw the concert gain national profile. A team from JTV covered the event which aired on ABC TV and was met with great interest. Local support was at an all time high with 3500 swinging to the desert reggae. Workshops were held leading up to the event with Neil Murray and Sammy Butcher from Warumpi Band working with the bands on arrangements, performance skills and stage presence. The performances from Tjupi Band and Sunshine Reggae led them on to performances at events around Australia.
