These DJ’s earned a collective US 270.5 million dollars!
Forbes is known for its incredible high-valued lists and the magazine has just released the Top 10 Electronic Cash Kings list to place the highest EDM producers within the top slot.
Starting off with 3 million dollars less than last year, the number one earner in none one other than Calvin Harris, making him the top earning DJ in the world for the fourth time in a row at US 63 million dollars!
Taking the second spot is Tiesto with a significant drop at US 38 million dollars, followed by David Guetta and Zedd at US 28 million dollars and US 24.5 million dollars respectively. Steve Aoki rounded up the top five with Diplo placed sixth at US 23 million dollars.
Skrillex was placed alongside Kaskade, Martin Garrix and duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike all earning US 20 million, US 19 million, US 16 million and US 15.5 million dollars respectively.
Despite this huge number of collective earnings (a staggering US 270.5 million dollars), Forbes mentioned that this was the first time since 2012 that the collective earnings have been going down every year. Which leads to the question of how much did they earn before?!?!
Sigh, if only we earned so much money.
