History of The International Highline Meeting Festival, Monte Piana:

From the friendship of two highliners Alessandro d‘Emilia (Italy) and Armin Holzer, (SouthTyrol), they decided to start this festival in 2012.  It was inspired by their desire to have noteworthy scenery of Monte Piana (Misurina) in the Dolomites, Italy. The aim was to invite professional athletes and enthusiasts around the world to come here, gather, relax and be a part of this event. You can have a great 360 degrees view around the mountains of Auronzo di Cadore, Cortina d’Ampezzo and “Sextner Dolomiten” in those seats for their special shape and position.

For its natural beauty as well as historical importance, the founders chose this place for the festival. The event area is an open air museum to honor the memory of the 18,000 young soldiers who died here during the First World War. The trenches which are 7 km in length are still viewable. Moreover, the highline is an extreme practice on top of mountains and it has already become a model to connect different cultures in respect of the natural surroundings and life.

Some Key Facts about The International Highline Meeting Festival:

  • The trenches are not visible in the winter because the snow fills in it.

In the Slackline Festival, there is tightrope walking as the rope, which the slackers use, is slightly flatter than tightrope and move side to side or bounce. The founders believe that the mountain is a perfect place for high lining and can stimulate this historic place in a different way. You can spend a good portion of your time or enjoy amazing views and take pretty cool selfies in the hammocks suspended above the Alps. You can also use the provided kitchen, the bar, the great musical jam sessions, Yoga workshops and tandem paraglider flights.

The overly courageous adventure-seekers take this slackline festival to the next level by spending days and nights suspended hundreds of feet. There are 16 hammocks on the main line.
