Keep It Low is an indoor festival in Munich, showcasing heavy rock, doom metal, stoner, psychedelic and rock and roll. Keep It Low is typically hosted at Feierwerk, roughly two subway stations away from the centre of Munich. Along with multiple stages the festival also features an outside beer garden and skatepark.

While the inaugural edition only spanned a single day the festival has since grown into an event spanning three days and selling out most of their editions. The festival is also sponsored by Sounds of Liberation.

2013Edit

The inaugural Keep It Low Festival would be hosted on a single day with roughly fifteen bands over three stages. This inaugural edition would be hosted on 19 October 2013 at Feierwerk in Munich. Along with the band festivities the festival would host an outdoor skate park, beer garden, a Malleus Rock Art Lab exhibition and celebrate the tenth anniversary of Elektrohasch Schallplatten.[1]

Been Obscene were intended to play the inaugural edition but would disband right before the festival, with Wight and Joules announced as replacements. Not long after the festival would be announced as to have sold out.[2]
