MANIFEST 20 YEAR BIRTHDAY BALL | HALVANDET
20 years ago in a small back room in Copenhagen the idea of ManiFest was born with a simple idea…”We want to start a bi-monthly fetish club in Copenhagen!….”
Some may remember our very first party in 1998 at Blue Note on studiestræde. We were around 50 guests in this small sleazy venue. The atmosphere was electric and full of kinky and lustful appetite. Something special was happening…
It was the days before the internet and promotion was done mouth to mouth, and by printed newsletters sent to members by post. Times have changed since that day and over the past 20 years ManiFest has grown into one of Northern Europe’s most established recurring Fetish events, with a strong identity and extremely well behaved playful guests.
Lots of things can be experienced at a ManiFest party, but it is for sure our uniquely dedicated and ever loyal crowd, that is the biggest asset. Thank you for taking part, co-creating and contributing, and in making ManiFest a truly magical and hedonistic sexually free experience.
Today ManiFest is a centerpoint for the danish sexual subculture and we keep working to maintain that position and grow on all levels. ManiFest has always been and still is something very unique and that deserves to be saluted!
So to celebrate this and the past 20 years of ManiFest you are invited to ManiFest’s 20 Year Birthday Ball! For this glorious occasion we have chosen the outstandingly raw, spacious and industrial venue Halvandet! It is a venue that has many interesting features and we will proudly present it to you in an extraordinary and entirely new ManiFest décor and layout.
Expect a big birthday bang with local and international performances and DJ’s. Nostalgic installations, a hard hitting dancefloor, playrooms and the best of ManiFest memories.
Reserve this very special night and come celebrate the past 20 years of ManiFest with us!
Stay tuned for more details and line-up.

Iris together with her pervy friends will be performing 2 shows for you this special evening:
THE EVIL NUN
This nun is an evil creature. She drags the innocent virgin around and sodomises her.
She enjoys torturing and sexually abusing her. In rubber of course from head to toe. Her innocent victim however, is stripped naked and lays at her feet.
The situation takes a surprising turn when suddenly a priest appears. He tries to save the innocent virgin but first he has to tame the evil nun with candle wax and whips. Will she be defeated?
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD & MISTER BIG BAD WOLF, A KINKY FAIRY TALE
Little red rubber riding hood is off to visit her grandma who is feeling ill. On her path she stumbles upon Mister Wolf. He is friendly and offers her a flower and joins her for a walk in the woods. But suddenly he changes and has other things on his mind. Little red riding hood tries to resist and run away, but she fails.
When the wolf catches her he punishes her, torturing her nipples and whipping her little red body. And you know what..? After a while little red riding hood doesn’t seem to mind at all. And they all lived happily ever after!
