The World’s Highest Paid DJs

highest-paid-djs

It’s been said that DJs are the new rockstars. Even if you don’t agree with that, you can’t argue with the kind of superstar money they’re pulling in. Forbes just put together the list of the highest paid DJs of the last year (June 1, 2012 through June 1, 2013) and it’s fairly insane. We don’t know how much every band member makes out there, but we’d guess a lot would dream of making Calvin Harris money.

1. Calvin Harris – $46 million

2. Tiesto – $32 million

3. David Guetta – $30 million

4. Swedish House Mafia – $25 million

5. Deadmau5 – $21 million

6. Avicii – $20 million

7. Afrojack – $18 million

8. Armin van Buuren – $17 million

9. Skrillex – $16 million (tie)

9. Kaskade – $16 million (tie)

11. Steve Aoki – $14 million

12. DJ Pauly D – $13 million (tie)

12. Diplo – $13 million (tie)
