In 2007 the Bush Bands Bash was invited to be the opening night event for the Alice Desert Festival. The stage was set on the Council lawns in the middle of town which attracted a massive crowd of over 2000.  The bands came into town a few days early and spent time rehearsing, which meant they where ready to rock when they stepped on stage.  The result was  incredible performances that set new levels for desert music.
