2018 Chilli Festival

Held annually in the eastern-Austrian village of Heiligenkreuz-im-Lafnitz, the Chilli Festival is held in the town’s main hotel, where many of the musicians and guests also stay. The village is minutes from the Hungarian border, and trains to/from Graz stop at a platform between a forest and cornfields to let off passengers.
