Remind does not handle events that span days very well.  The only solution
I can think of is:

REM 6 Jun 2010 +2 *21 MSG %"Some event%" %b.
REM 7 Jun 2010 *21 MSG Some event (day two.)
REM 8 Jun 2010 *21 MSG Some event (day three.)

Yes.  (Well... it depends on your interpretation of "simple" :))
"man remind" and search for PRECISE SCHEDULING
