Volume 5 was organized in the Great Hall of AIMST University on the 14 th February 2009. It featured many types of performances comprising different genres of music from rock bands, contemporary vocals, Indian classical music, fusion music, beat box and etc. the profits from this concert would be used to donate to True Life Children Home in Sungai Petani in the form of buying musical instruments for the underprivileged children there. The show was a great success as a result of untiring effort of not only the organizers but the crew members, performers and also from the support of the University administration.
