KEEP IT TRUE Festival Lauda-Koenigshofen 2017

The 20th anniversary of KEEP IT TRUE Festival in 2017 is history - and KIT 2018 meanwhile SOLD OUT! Unbelievable, but everybody who ever had the chance to join that completely different festival will agree. It´s not a only festival, but much more a familiy reunion of Metal Headz from all over the world. They come together each year at the end of April in a small town in a federal state called BADEN-WUERTTEMBERG/Germany. Each year the tiny litte town Lauda-Koenigshofen will be the "Holy Grail" for pure and traditional heavy metal music. And every year a finest choice of handpicked bands performing in a venue for 2500 people.

The organizers Oliver Weinsheimer and Tarek Maghary (he also performed during KIT with his band MAJESTY) make every year the impossible possible. They are booking bands which are still existing since 25, 30 or 35 years - and are still legends. Or they persuade bands (which are splitted since years) for a come together for a one and only show during KIT - and sometimes it ends in a furious COME BACK.

One of this years legends were FIFTH ANGEL/USA (they performed their 2nd show ever in band history!!) and CIRITH UNGOL/USA (with their first European show after the split in 1991).

By the way: KIT 2018 was sold out during KIT 2017 in 2 hours (!!). All-time record!
