international free all day non-verbal

The Urban Highline Festival, organised by the Firmament Foundation, is back for its 16th edition, promising a spectacle unlike any other. Prepare to be awestruck by international talent as participants from over 70 countries will showcase their  feats.

Six stunning locations across Lublin will transform into highlining havens, featuring a multitude of lines strung between iconic landmarks. Admire the artistry and athleticism of highliners as they navigate between the Old Town tenements, the Trinitarian Tower, the Krakowska Gate, the Lublin Conference Centre, and above Wieniawska Street.

Wieniawska Street boasts the festival's longest lines, including a heart-stopping 100-meter stretch. But fear not, beginners! Błonia opens its arms with an accessible slackline camp, where all ages and skill levels can test their balance.

Get ready for a first! This year, the festival unveils a net suspended near the Tribunal. Watch professional trickliners showcase their  jumps. Starting Saturday afternoon, witness the unthinkable: artists will walk lines above the net – without a harness! Don't worry, the net ensures a safe landing.

On Friday evening, be mesmerised by the world's first urban LED LINE, a glowing ribbon of light stretching between the Lublin Conference Center and the Center for the Meeting of Cultures.

Since its inception, Carnaval Sztukmistrzów has been accompanied by the Urban Highline Festival, organised by Fundacja Firmament. This year, the festival expands its horisons beyond its traditional setting, bringing the thrill of highlining to new heights.

The Urban Highline Festival has long been a haven for highlining aficionados, gathering them in the heart of Lublin's Old Town to showcase their daring feats on lines strung between historic buildings. This year, the festival invites everyone to experience the exhilaration of highlining, expanding its reach with an open slackline town on Błonia.

Lublin's urban landscape will transform into a highliner's paradise, with lines stretching across iconic landmarks. Witness the spectacle as highliners grace the Teatralny Square navigating between the Lublin Conference Centre and  the Centre for the Meeting of Cultures. Then, gaze upwards as the most experienced highliners execute breathtaking maneuvers on the longest lines suspended above Wieniawska.

Whether you're a seasoned highliner or a curious spectator, the Urban Highline Festival offers an unforgettable experience. Marvel at the artistry and athleticism of the world's best highliners, or take your own turn on the slackline and discover the thrill of walking the line.
