The International Highline Meeting Festival – Monte Piana
IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE HERE…
WHOAH, THAT’S A NEW ONE.
The festival goers that are suspended hundreds of feet above the ground in those colourful hammocks are called slackers, and they’re not your usual festival slackers; these guys earned their name from the slack wire helping to prevent them plunging to their deaths. The fiesta is a chance for lovers of the sport to meet up in a totally non-competitive environment.
WHAT IF WE PREFER THE VIEW OF THE DOLOMITES FROM SOLID GROUND?
Completely understandable; the aim of the get-together is to not only give enthusiasts a chance to hang out (boom boom) but to gently introduce newbies to the sport. Don’t feel pressured to get high (bam) – the festival organisers put on musical entertainment, an outdoor cinema, food stalls and yoga lessons for those not into the high life. At night there’s a dance party that even the slackers get in on.
