Is there an easily accessible text containing a detailed description and derivation of all unitary representations of affine Kac-Moody algebras?

Chapter III of the lecture notes on
Kac-Moody and Virasoro algebras by Antony Wasserman (2010) might well be what you are looking for:
This course develops the representation theory of affine Kac–Moody
algebras and the Virasoro algebra. These infinite–dimensional Lie
algebras play an important role in string theory and conformal field
theory; they are the Lie algebras of the loop groups and
diffeomorphism group of the circle. We adopt a unitary viewpoint and
use supersymmetry as the main technique.
