Hungarian musicians performed non-stop for 216 hours at a summer resort on Lake Balaton to set a Guinness World Record for the longest concert, Hungarian News Agency MTI reported Monday.

The concert was part of the Balatonfured Guitar Festival.

The attempt to set the new world record started on June 21. More than 1,000 musicians of all ages in 350 groups lined up to take the stage by turns for days and nights. The youngest among them was just seven years old.

Besides classical guitarists, jazz, Latin, flamenco and rock musicians also performed at the concert.

The new record was set at 3 p.m. local time (1300 GMT) on Monday.

The last time Hungarians set a world record for the longest concert was on July 1 last year, with a performance lasting 192 hours at the same venue. It was later beaten by Canadian musicians with a 200-hour performance.
