Two former contestants and Team Delta members from Channel Nine’s ‘The Voice Australia’ are set to rock the stage as part of night time entertainment at this year’s Cloncurry Stockman’s Challenge and Campdraft with thanks to Curley Cattle Transport.
Renowned as one of the greatest horse events in Australia and a must-do on the regions social calendar, the Stockman’s Challenge will return to Cloncurry in Outback Queensland from Wednesday July 10 to Sunday 14.
Featuring days packed with campdraft action and a Saturday night rodeo; pop-artist and former Australian super group ‘The Collective’ member Trent Bell of Townsville origins will be headlining the live entertainment both Friday and Saturday nights, supported by fellow past Voice contestant and popular cover artist Tim Conlon heralding from Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Returning to the iconic event for his second year running, Trent’s life long passion for music has seen him travel the world but his love for North Queensland remains, shown recently with his performance alongside Rob Thomas in Townsville for a concert giving back to the community after the devastation of the February floods.
"I was amongst all the devastation and floods in North Queensland losing majority of my belongings in Townsville. But I can tell you, it creates thick skin and if anyone can get through this it's us Queenslanders; built to withstand tough times like these. I feel for everyone who was impacted, and I know we can all get through it, I know it!"
With many rural residents of the Cloncurry Shire and surrounds where the Stockman’s Challenge is held also affected “putting on a performance that allows them to unwind and have a great time” is just another way Trent aims to show his support.
Trent and Tim will be performing from 9pm both Friday and Saturday night of the Challenge, hosted at the Cloncurry Equestrian Centre. Entry for spectators is free with bar, food and trade stalls on site so be sure to mark the dates in your diary and book your accommodation today.
