Commercial accommodations in the capital hosted 143,000 guests and registered 274,000 guest nights during the Sziget - Hungary's biggest musical festival - in August, the Hungarian Tourism Agency said, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Guest volume was double that during the same period a year earlier, the agency said.

Festival-goers returned to the Sziget after a two-year pandemic hiatus.

The agency noted that a number of other summer music festivals boosted guest nights at local commercial accommodations by a factor of "four or five". 

Guest nights in Sopron reached 20,000 during the five-day VOLT festival, and guest nights in Zamárdi came to 30,000 during Balaton Sound. Guest nights in Orfű stood at 16,000 during the Fishing on Orfű festival.

Guest nights during VeszprémFest, in Veszprém, rose to 6,000, and guest nights in Sukoró, on Lake Velence, climbed to 7,900 during the EFOTT festival. Guest nights in Debrecen rose to 13,000 during the Campus festival.
