Although the school season is soon approaching, organizers make sure to keep the summer momentum going by finishing the summer with a bang! As the summer season comes to end, rather than slowing down summer activities, there comes an increase in fun and exciting summer events such as concerts, festivals and fairs as people don’t quite want to let the summer end just yet. Below we’ve gathered the best festival inventions that are sure to be not only handy, but lifesavers.
Take a Drink With You Anywhere You Go
What’s a festival without drinks? There’s nothing worse than being stuck without a cup or not being able to find a cup in the middle of a festival, especially when you’re parched. Even if you don’t drink, having a cup during a festival is always handy in any measure in which you need to hydrate quickly – especially with the rise of refill stations. This Collapsible Pint Glass is the best festival invention to solve the problem of being underprepared for any beer or drink tent at any event. The cup has a great portable design as it can be carried conveniently in your pocket or bag and taken out whenever you need to open it up and fill it with the drink of your choice. Once you’re done, you can collapse it back down and store it away with ease.
The Best Festival Invention That is Perfect for Raves
By far one of the hardest type of festivals to stay hydrated in are music festivals. Although there are a lot of calm, less intense music festivals, high-intensity music festivals such as raves, techno or hip-hop festivals are extremely popular and make up a lot of the highlights of summer. Carrying a heavy water bottle can take up a lot of energy and make it difficult to catch a good view of the show or make it through rowdy crowds. However, the best festival invention make specifically for crowded music festivals is the Festken Water Bottle. The Festken water bottle is a water bottle designed here at Mako Design and Invent and features a simple, comfortable and easily portable structure in where the user can easily slip the water bottle through their fingers and use it both as a water bottle and light! The Festken bottle comes in a variety of different lights and is the perfect bottle for raves or night music festivals. The best part about this festival invention is that if you drop it – its bright neon light makes it easy to find again!

The Portable Shower Perfect for Long Weekend Festivals
During the summer, some festivals feature such great and exciting line ups that people travel miles to attend! Not only that, but popular festivals such as outside lands, Coachella and Burning Man, bring attendees that camp out to get the full experience of the event! Festivals that require attendees to camp out are always hard to manage because of the lack of proper facilities. However, one of the best festival inventions to help make camping out for festivals easier is the Milestone Solar Shower. This simple invention works by filling in the product with water, leaving it in the sun and then using it as a portable shower. The product can hold up to 20 litres of water and the genius of this festival invention is that- hence the name, it absorbs solar rays from the sun to quickly heat up the water so that you can wash yourself in warm water. For the best results, ask a friend to hold the product over your head so it feels just as much as real shower as it can!
