Ivan Smagghe and Manfredas‘ club night, Dresden, is set to host its first ever multi-day event in Vilnius.

MORE DRESDEN, is set to take place across September 15-16 across two venues in the Lithuanian capital: Opium Club and Gallery 1986.

Since it began in 2021, the party has often taken place in either Vilnius or London’s Corsica Studios — focusing on long, expeditious sets and a “free music policy,” ensuring an eclectic and unpredictable offering.

For MORE DRESDEN, the pair have enlisted the help of Nicolas Lutz, Craig Richards, Mad Miran, Sunju Hargun, Kiara Scuro and more; while Dresden themselves – Ivan Smagghe and Manfredas – are expected to play an extended set.

“The idea for a ‘Dresden’ night was born as going back-to-basics approach,” says Manfredas. “A back-to-back all-nighter by me and Ivan at the venues that we enjoy playing music that we enjoy.”
