60+ Slackline Festivals Around The World

Festival Guide:
60+ Slackline and Highline Festivals

As the years pass, the number of highline and slackline festivals grow. It seems like each and every year there is another highline festival popping up somewhere in the world. So I decided to compile a list of every single (current!) slackline festival that I could find.

This comprehensive slackers guide offers festival-seekers a quick breakdown of festival offerings and the country the event is held in.  If you know of a slackline festival missing from the list, shoot me a message with details. I would love to get it added. But for now, here’s what I got…

60+ Slackline Festivals Around The World / Highline Festivals Too!

A list of 60 slackline festivals from all over the world. I tried to only include festivals that have slacklining, highlining, or tricklining as a major offering at their event. Some of the festivals are competition-based, while others are essentially big laidback slacker gatherings. Either way, there is fun to be had. I hope this list helps you on your journey to further explore the art of balance.
