Ticket holders to the festival will get a specially-designed NFC-enabled band known as the AFA-Band! It is to earn AFA Hero XP, AFA Coins, instant discounts and unlock virtual easter eggs. They can also design their own Seika AFA-tar which is an avatar life character used throughout the process of unlocking special skins from AFA-Pitstops or they could exchange them for limited-edition accessories with AFA-Coins.
