    Default Missed opportunity (kinda rant) advice

    So i've been talking to an event company and been trying to get gigs for about half a year now through them. I finally got the call today and they want me to spin a massive event of about 2000 kids. However I can't do this date. How can i say I can't and not burn a bridge?

    Being busy is nowhere near to be a bad reason.. at least it looks like you don't need them TO SURVIVE.

    The more busy I am, the more call I get. Next time they call way before instead.

    This. The fact of the matter is, it's better to turn down deals then accept them and not being able to show or not showing at all.

    Tell them, sorry I simply cannot make that date because I already have a prior arrangement and am booked for that day. Don't be rude, just simply tell them you're already booked but you would love to do another gig through them at another time.
