This is a recap of the 2016 Girls-Only highline festival in Ostrov, Czech Republic. The 2017 one just happened a few weeks ago. You’ll have to wait til next year (and be female) if you want to go.
It’s great to see women get together and empower each other. Highlining is a male-dominated sport, so this gender-exclusive festival is a good opportunity to get introduced to the sport, without feeling like a minority. I’d like to see this happening in more parts of the world so that more women can access a similar opportunity.
Check out our short film by Heather Falenski on the Girls Only Slackline Festival run by Faith Dickey that brings women together from all around the world to highline and slackline together in the Czech Republic. This film is part of a larger documentary that we are currently shooting with Faith on her story. This amazing event will take place again this year from September 1-3 in Ostrov! #OneWorldMediaLLC #FaithDoc Deuter Autokemp pod Císařem Rock Empire s.r.o.

This is a documentary, by Olivia Page, about last years Arapiles Highline Meeting, near Natimuk, Australia. It looks like a lot of fun! It’s happening this year, September 28 – October 2, 2017.

Here’s some breathtaking footage from last years highlines at the 2016 Frasassi Climbling Festival, in Italy.
“Last year this sport beckoned a big amount of guys thanks to the amazing spots and the landscape. 2 sectors, 15 lines and an average exposition of 200m: breathtaking emotions has been guaranteed. In this festival edition the offer will be enriched with two more sectors and the project of a 300m line.” – Frasassi Climbing Festival Website
Some of these trickliners are a little crazy. Get ready to be impressed.

Between Years is India’s first slackline/ highline festival. It occurs during the switch between years and is located outside Mumbai. They had only a few highlines, but next year, it is likely to be bigger.

Emerald Poolooza was canceled for 2016, because there was too much interest. I can see why, especially after this video was made. People, from all over, wanted to gather together, at this supreme location, for highlining and cliff diving. Safety is a major consideration, and with too many people, a place like this becomes quite dangerous.
