MORE music, more often, attracting more people to inform themselves and support the anti-gas movement is the main idea behind Rock the Gate.

Director Nick Henlon and associate director Amanda Shoebridge are working towards bringing well-known artists to Bentley and the Northern Rivers.

Ms Shoebridge said Rock the Gate's mission was to "organise events to raise awareness (about fracking) and to help facilitate artists to voice their opposition to mining projects".

The money raised by these events will go to fund the anti-gas movement.

"We are looking into organising a new Rock the Gate event soon," she said.

Ms Shoebridge could not confirm any dates yet "as we are looking into a date that would enable as many artists to participate as possible", but the idea is for it to take place soon.

To date, a number of concerts have been organised across the Northern Rivers, in the Surat Basin and in Sydney featuring musicians including Ash Grunwald, Xavier Rudd, Leo Sayer, John Waters, Reg Mombassa, Kevin Borich, Adam Harvey, Deni Hines, The Round Mountain Girls, Luke Vassella and Diana Anaid.
