The event also included a variety of entertainment. As people waited in line, DJ Justin Hou played live music which included a mix of anime opening and ending songs, J-Pop, K-Pop, Trap, Electronic Dance Music, Future, and so forth. Moreover, Kyodo Taiko and Yukai Daiko performed Taiko drumming, and the Holy Quintet, a Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica cosplay group, presented dance numbers.

Additionally, the night featured special events such as the spicy food contest, where participants competed over who can eat more spicy food in the time limit, and a fundraiser by Fresh Produce, the art focused partner club of JAC, who hosted paid art commissions.
