The inaugural Mittagong Country Music Stampede was held at Mittagong RSL on September 7 and 8, and was attended by approximately 800 patrons over the weekend.
Friday night kicked off with Darren Coggan warming up the early comers with his energetic guitar driven style.

Highlight of the Saturday was the Country Vocal Talent Quest, sponsored by Yamaha Music, with over $4000 in cash and prizes on offer. Fifty contestants registered for the event, and a 200 strong audience witnessed a high quality final which was adjudicated by Felicity Urquhart, and Rebecca McCarthy of Rum Promotions. The competition finished with a 20 minute performance by perennial crowd favourite Felicity, who was joined impromptu on stage by popular ABC radio host Nick Rheinberger.

Downstairs patrons were entertained throughout by the talents of Dianna Corcoran, Shane Flew and Mark Lucas and the Dead Setters.
The evening concluded with just under 400 packing the auditorium for the launch of Cowpoke's new album 'Big Red Ute' who were joined on stage by television personality Geoff Harvey.

Results of the Talent Quest were;
SENIORS - 1st Peter McWhirter, 2nd Chloe Graham, 3rd Cheyne Mastop
