Welcome to the third edition of the legendary Belgian Highline Festival. Once more we will gather in Freyr, between the greatest cliffs of our small country, with the Meuse flowing 100m under our feet.
In these 5 days you will be able to give all you got, not only on our +18 beautiful highlines (30-550m), but join different workshops, warm up (or cool down) at the regular slacklines in the bivouac, enjoy the fire show, hang out at our chill-spot , play music together on the jam-night and dance your legs off at the party on Saturday.
The rocks of Freyr: Chau. des Alpinistes 16, 5500 Dinant. or 50°13'13.4"N 4°53'41.0"E.
