Force Attack was a music festival, which was organized every year on the last July weekend in Behnkenhagen in the municipality Süderholz near Rostock. Approximately 50 bands mainly from the genres Punk, Ska, Oi!, Hardcore, Psychobilly and Metal were performing for three days on two stages.
The first Force Attack was organized 1996 in Barth with 26 bands on two days and moved to Benkenhagen in 1999. Compared to other music festivals, the Force Arrack was rather inexpensive with a ticket price of only 30 EUR in 2008. Camping was usually included and the first 1,000 orders come with a free festival sampler on CD. Because the festival originally took place approximately 15 car minutes from the Baltic Sea a lot of visitors seized the opportunity to take a bath in the sea.
In 2013, when the festival was to take place in Stavenhagen, the municipality banned the festival several months before it was to take place, and organizers didn't succeed in finding an alternative location.
