Urban Highline at Carnaval Sztukmistrzów

In a few days, we are starting Carnaval Sztukmistrzów (17-20 September) featuring Urban Highline Festival when artists walk on lines. We will see them in the Old Town and the city centre.

Urban Highline Festival is the largest and only festival of this type held in the urban space and it attracts many highliners and tourists. Thanks to the event, over the past 11 years Lublin has become the capital of this activity, while the magic of strolls inspired by the character of the Magician of Lublin has made our city famous all over the world.

Sanitary restrictions and budget cuts forced us to make several changes in the event. The number of lines has been cut down to 9, whereas the number of locations with the lines has grown to four. Those are: the Crown Tribunal, Teatralny Square with lines hung between Lublin Conference Centre and the Centre for the Meeting of Cultures. Another line will be hung between the City Hall and Krakowska Gate. A new attraction is highline at Perła Brewery (Bernardyńska street), from 18.00-22.00. Every hour on the hour, we will be able to see the highline strollers.

“The city of Lublin and its residents have given Highliners positive Energy many times and we want to repay them by holding the festival and creating an opportunity to improve the city’s economic situation through attracting  festival participants and tourists. Chins up! :)” – Wojciech Sieńko – the coordinator of Urban Highline Festival.
