The main event, August’s Sziget Festival in Budapest, attracted 565,000 visitors, some 5-10% fewer than two years ago.
Other events organised by Sziget are the Volt festival in Sopron, the Balaton Sound event in Zamárdi and the smaller Gourmet festival.
It also staged a free event for children, the Gyerek Sziget, sponsored by insurance company Generali.
Ticket prices for the 2019 Sziget scheduled for August 7-13 will rise by less than 10% and will be on sale from October 1.
Ed Sheeran has already been confirmed as one of the leading star performers.
