CPAC is being seen a major event to set the course for the Republican party going into the mid-term elections in 2022 and presidential election in 2024.
And it is especially significant this year as Trump will make his first speech since losing the White House to Joe Biden.
Stone - who was pardoned by Trump after he was convicted of lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering - is one of many high profile figures to have descended on the conference.
He was pictured dancing alongside Blow as the rapper sung the catchy refrain "who won? Trump won, who won? Trump won" - referencing false claims repeatedly made by the former president that the election was "stolen".
The lyrics also included bars that dubbed Trump the "chosen one" and appearing to praise "patriots" who "knocked on the Capitol".
Stone - wearing braces and his trademark dark glasses - received cheers as he waved the crowd while posing in front of the truck for photographs.
He is facing new scrutiny however as the Justice Department are reportedly investigating possible ties between him, InfoWars host Alex Jones, and the Capitol rioters.
Stone has said any suggestion he was involved in the riot was "categorically false".
The lobbyist did not set foot in the Capitol during the riot, but was pictured the day before with "security" from the Oath Keepers militia group - members of whom did participate in the violence.
He had also been a voice who helped to amplify the falsehoods about the election as some Republicans alleged - without evidence - that a wide-ranging multi-state conspiracy was executed against Trump to rob him of the White House.Stone was pardoned by Trump during his final days in the White HouseCredit: AP:Associated Press Stone was met by cheers as he posed in front of a truck depicting Trump as RamboCredit: Getty Images - Getty
CPAC is being held from February 25 through the 28th as it has already seen appearances by Donald Trump Jr, Texas senator Ted Cruz, and Florida congressman Matt Gaetz.
The event is railing against the new Democrat administration as Biden won the White House and the party seized control of the Senate.
Trump is due to appear on Sunday as speculation hots up about what he could be say in his speech.
"You're going to see a speech on Sunday that talks about not only the beginning, but what the future may look like, and I'm excited about it," former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told Fox News.
"I spoke to President Trump last night for a fairly lengthy conversation where [we] were talking about America, where it needs to go, continuing the America first agenda."
"But more importantly than that, how this president - Biden - has undermined that particular policy within days, and we see it."
Former Vice President Mike Pence declined to speak at CPAC, while it was reported that Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell did not receive an invitation at all after Trump branded him "sullen".Donald Trump Jr appeared alongside his girlfriend Kimberly GuilfoyleCredit: Getty Images - Getty Ted Cruz spoke at CPAC and joked about his recent trip to CancunCredit: AP:Associated Press Matt Gaetz was another high profile Republican to speak at the event in FloridaCredit: AP:Associated Press
Trump is expected to take to the stage at around 3:40pm EST on February 28 - and it is rumored he will announce plans to run for president in 2024.
Sources said he will go between "warming up to the idea of a 2024 run, and walking right up to the line of announcing another campaign”.
The 45th President appears to be the unifying figure at CPAC - with attendees even crowding round to get pictures with a golden statue of him.
Republicans will be seeking to rebuild after their bruising loses in the 2020 elections - but there still remains divisions in the party, with some seven senators voting to impeach Trump.
McConnell also blasted Trump as being "morally responsible" for the Capitol attack, but has since said he would back the former TV star as the party's nominee in 2024.
The divisions in the party were laid bare as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney were both quizzed last week on whether Trump should be appearing at CPAC.
McCarthy offered an immediate "yes", while Cheney said it was up to CPAC before saying she does not support Trump playing a role in the future of the GOP.Trump fans crowd around a golden effigy for the former presidentCredit: Getty Images - Getty
Don Jr. - who is tipped to possibly run for office in the future - blasted Biden's first 30 days as a disaster when he appeared at CPAC.
"The lies the media told you wouldn't happen are all happening," he said before joking. "But hey at least they have a diverse cabinet, right?"
He went on to slam Kamala Harris, saying: "First and foremost we elected a woman, well that's wonderful, is she competent?"
His comments come just one day after Don Jr told Sean Hannity that his father showed "you can actually push back."
"The Republicans aren't willing to do it. They've shown that over the decades," he said.
"They'd just rather lose gracefully, I guess. That's not really a plan that I would go with, but it's what they've done.
"Donald Trump has shown that you don't have to do that. You can actually push back."
