Solo artist Natchy and Philip Woo are also slated to perform on Sunday. On both days, bring the kids for a performance by Clown Kotra and juggler Tamanchu Hiroto. Jazz Band Subfive is also performing both days.

Organizers promise that there are plenty of food, drink and games.

Pop band Hot Chelle Rae known for hits “Tonight Tonight” and “I Like It Like That” are headlining on Saturday from 8 p.m. Grammy-nominated artist Trey Songz is set to perform on Sunday at 8 p.m.

Kinser Fest is open to all DoD ID card holders and Japanese locals. Please leave your pets at home. Do not bring any outside alcohol, bottles or coolers.
