In order to unlock the famous KK Slider and have him visit your island, you need to build a reputation for yourself. First and foremost, you need to have constructed all buildings on your island — Nooks Cranny, Able Sisters, the Campsite, the Museum, and the Resident Services building — and have multiple villagers living there.

After this, you'll need to work on the rating of your island for KK Slider's attention to be caught. Once your island reaches three out of five stars, Isabelle will inform you of some feedback from the musician himself. Sure enough, he'll visit your island the next day and perform a concert for everyone! After this, KK Slider will visit your island every Saturday from 6PM to perform.

For more help on getting your island's rating up, we have a handy guide on how to achieve the perfect island here.

Nook Shopping

Every day, you can visit the Nook Stop in the Resident Services building. Access Nook Shopping and scroll all the way to the bottom of the 'Special Goods' section to purchase a new KK Slider song! Once purchased, the track will arrive in your mail the next day.

Attending Concerts

KK Slider will visit your island every Saturday evening from 6PM. If there is a Saturday event on, such as the Bug Off or Fishing Tourney, he will visit the Friday before instead.

By speaking with KK Slider, you can request a random song, a song based on your mood, or a song of your choice. Once he has played the song, he will kindly gift you your own copy of it and place it in your inventory, provided you don't already own it.

While you can ask KK Slider to play multiple songs during his visit, he will only gift you one per week. If you don't know what to request, we have listed all of KK Slider's song titles below!
