Vilnius’ Opium Club celebrates 12th anniversary

Opium Club started as a friends-for-friends club in the basement of a building on a busy bar street. 
After a few years of playing around, the club moved to premises on the second floor of the same building and was reinvented as an international music institution. 

For almost 12 years now (9 of them on the second floor) Opium has been known as the truly electronic music-dedicated venue in the city of Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. 

“Perhaps more than any other club in the region, Opium club is responsible for bringing high-quality house and techno talent to the Baltic on a weekly basis.” – Resident Advisor, 2014

Back in 2019, the club released its first compilation “Opium of the People”, conceived and compiled by Vidmantas “V” Cepkauskas, the head of programming and resident DJ of Opium, a well-known contributor to the electronic music scene for nearly two decades.

For their birthday weekender the club invited a series of local heroes and international names including Kim Ann Foxman, Marc Piñol, Bruxas live, Paranoid London, V, Manfredas, Roe Deers and more.
