Many of us have experienced the immense frustration of attempting to book travel accommodations for a massive music festival. But how much extra are we spending in comparison to those who travel to the same destinations on any given day?

A new study from money.co.uk analyzed just how much extra we spend on Airbnb accommodations during music festivals. While the results may not be shocking, they're fairly eye-opening for those who haven't thought twice about how much profit there is to be had from an Airbnb booking during festival season.

This year's edition of Ultra Miami has caused a 19.1% surge, increasing the average Airbnb price from $456 to $543. However, Ultra surprisingly ranks 18th in a total overall increase in comparison to other major fests.

The numbers drop dramatically as the list moves further down, with Eurovision Song Contest only seeing an 88.6% increase followed by Primavera Sound's 53.% clip.
