How to Get KK Slider to Visit Your Island

Once you've built the full Resident Services building after the Nook Cranny installation (more on that here) and inviting three new people to your island, Tom Nook will set out plans for a KK Slider concert. To get KK Slider to visit you'll need to increase the population of your island and improve the scenery. You can read more about inviting new characters to your island here. Once you've invited someone new, Tom Nook will pass you over to Isabelle for the final part of the plan, which we'll explain below:

How to Increase Your Island Star Rating

Once you're passed over to Isabelle for the final part of Project K, she will explain that in order to convince KK Slider to visit your island you will need to increase your star rating to three stars. To check your rating, speak to Isabelle and select 'Island Evaluations'. You'll likely be at one star when you first to speak to Isabelle, but don't worry, you can increase the rating by doing the following:

  1. Invite more people to the island, either by using the campsite or heading off with Nook Miles Tickets.
  2. Improve the scenery. This means bridges, inclines, outdoor items like lanterns, flowers, fencing and fountains. Just try to improve the overall image of the island.
  3. Once you've invited more people, you'll get more specific feedback on how to proceed, from there it's just a case of doing what Isabelle describes.

KK Slider Concert

The whole point of Project K is to put on a KK Slider concert. We won't spoil the specifics here, but if you follow the information detailed earlier in this page KK Slider will perform on your island. It'll take a while to improve your island rating to the point you'll need, but the event will do wonders for your island's image, so it's worth pursuing.
