Aside from enjoying the awesome music, festival attendees will also be able to do their part for charity, as the money raised from ticket sales will be used to fund deserving community projects in Sabah. Some of the past projects that have been funded by previous festivals include a clean water project for villagers, literacy programmes, Avoidable Blindness campaign, environmental protection programmes, free medical services to rural communities and more.
