Trent Richardson

2024 Show Ambassador

The Gold Coast Show announces that the Ambassador for 2024 is Trent Richardson

Meet Trent Richardson, the young cowboy camel farmer hailing from Central Queensland, whose passion for music has propelled him onto the national stage. With recent breakout performances on Australian Idol, where he soared to the top 6, Trent has emerged as a thrilling new voice in the country music scene. At just 22 years old, he has already garnered a massive following across Australia, captivating audiences with his authentic sound and magnetic stage presence.

With festivals and performances lined up, Trent is poised to make a significant impact both at home and abroad, solidifying his position as the next rising star in country music.

After an incredibly successful move to Southport’s Broadwater Parklands in 2018 and 2019, the 2020 Gold Coast Show plans were halted, along with all other major events, due to COVID. The Gold Coast Show Management Committee have been working hard on the development of plans for the 2023 Agricultural Show and excitedly announce that CMC Hall of Fame inductee, Country Music Icon James Blundell will be the Ambassador in 2023, taking the event back to the grassroots and bringing Sun, Surf and Country together.
