Los asistentes a este festival duermen a cientos de metros de altura La traducción literal de slacker es gandúl, holgazán. Pero la palabra tiene otra acepción, más positiva: slacker es quien practica slackline. Es una disciplina deportiva parecida al funambulismo, en la que una persona trata de caminar sobre una cuerda suspendida en altura. La práctica se ha hecho popular en los últimos tiempos, sobre todo entre la gente amante de los deportes de montaña y los amantes del riesgo. Precisamente eso es lo que atrae a los asistentes al Highline Meeting Monte Piana, un festival en el que pasan la mayor parte del tiempo suspendidos de cuerdas encima de uno de los parajes más increíbles de los Alpes italianos: las Dolomitas. Además de practicar su deporte favorito (jugarse la vida), quien acude a la cita anual puede hacer yoga, disfrutar de conciertos al aire libre o tomarse algo en el bar.
