Scottish DJ Calvin Harris has been crowned the world’s highest-paid DJ for the third year in a row.
Seriously. He’s worth almost twice as much as runner up David Guetta!
His staggering wage is far more than the second-highest paid DJ, David Guetta, who made $37m last year from his residencies in Las Vegas and Ibiza and headline slot at this year’s Coachella Festival in California.
No wonder the ideal pair were able to upset Beyoncé and Jay Z for the top spot.
Tiesto’s at number three with earnings of $36million, followed by Skrillex and Steve Aoki both with $24million under the belts in 2015.
Who knew DJs could make so much money?!
He told Forbes: “The rise of dance music has been astronomical…” Harris also continues his periodic residency at Omnia nightclub in Vegas, and he is now the face of Giorgio Armani’s underwear, eye wear and watch lines.
Harris, 31, a record producer who has worked with the likes of Rihanna and Ne-Yo, saw his 2014 album Motion debut at the top of the United States dance charts.
The EDM star is enjoying his life with his pop princess girlfriend Taylor Swift, but he’s also cashing in on his DJing career. Forbes estimated earnings from music, endorsements and other fields for the 12 months ending on 1 June 2015 to compile the list.
