Dear friends & fans,
I know that some of you were excited to see me play in Istanbul at Playground, on 17th of July. I’m really really sorry to inform you that I had to cancel my involvement. The reason is simple:
When you book artists you should be able to pay for their flights, fee and hotel. When a DJ doesn’t know the promoter from previous gigs he always needs to have something paid in advance. This was the agreement in this case as well, but the advance payment never happened. No flights, no fee, no hotel booking. As a promoter you should never rely on money to come in, but always have money to pay things upfront.
I’m as sad as you are, really. I wished we could have had some fun in Istanbul. I’ll be there as soon as possible, of course.
Turkish fans rock!
