The Intercontinental Highline Assembly pageant appears like one of the chillest festivals we have ever listened to of, but it also may be one particular of the most terrifying – attendees commit most of their time strung up on tightropes stretched across the Italian Alps in Monte Piana.
The attendees contact themselves “slackers” because of the slacklines they balance by themselves on. This extreme sport differs from tightrope going for walks in that the rope has a slightly flattened shaped and has slack, meaning that it can go side-to-side or bounce.
Aside from the reality that the slackers invest a great element of their times their times (and evenings) on slacklines suspended hundreds of toes earlier mentioned the Italian dolomite Alps, the assembly has all the trappings of a normal competition – a kitchen area, a bar, and great musical jam sessions. Attendees can also attend a Yoga workshop or get tandem paraglider flights.
