Abstract: In this paper we study the PBW filtration on irreducible integrable highest weight representations of affine Kac-Moody algebras $\widehat {\mathfrak {g}}$. The $n$-th space of this filtration is spanned by the vectors $x_1\dots x_s v$, where $x_i\in \widehat {\mathfrak {g}}$, $s\le n$, and $v$ is a highest weight vector. For the vacuum module we give a conjectural description of the corresponding adjoint graded space in terms of generators and relations. For $\mathfrak {g}$ of the type $A_1$ we prove our conjecture and derive the fermionic formula for the graded character.
