Klangbad: Avant-garde in the meadows is a 2009 feature-length documentary film about the famous open air music festival "Klangbad" curated by Hans Joachim Irmler, one of the founding members of Faust (band). The film was produced and directed by the award-winning filmmakers Dietmar Post and Lucia Palacios. The film was shot on location in August 2005 in the small village of Scheer.


There are mainly two kinds of rock festivals: the usual ones and the adventurous-creative ones. The former present music, which everyone already knows. The others got their finger at the pulse of time and put their ear into niches and near boundary zones. They point out up-to-date trends, present upcoming musicians and bands, make new musical experiences and discoveries possible. The Klangbad festival at Scheer near Sigmaringen, South Germany, certainly belongs to this category and is the real festival insider's tip for open ears.

The sleepy, picturesque appearing village invites you to a musical provocative, avantgardistic-innovative journey, packed with surprises, crossing various genres.

Far away from the nowadays usual chart monotony and the artistic mainstreams, international artists meet local bands, which indeed differ in style, popularity and stage experience, but comply anyhow in one concise criterion: The love to authentic, expressive music.

Filmmakers Dietmar Post and Lucia Palacios in their film portrait the festival in the style of other Direct Cinema films, such as, Monterey Pop.

Critical reception

“Strolling the festival venue one might sense the attitude of mind Krautrock still stands for: no bouncers, no stupid marketing games, no bungee jumping. The calm atmosphere at the Klangbad Festival almost could be seen as something political. Here everything seems possible.” (Andi Schoon, Die ZEIT)[2]
