‘Electronic Cash Kings 2014’: Forbes ranks world’s highest-paid DJs
Forbes has revealed its annual ranking of the world’s highest-paid DJs — Electronic Cash Kings, as they’re referred — and little comes as a surprise. Calvin Harris has found himself a home in more than a couple of Forbes lists, and his number one spot as the top-earning DJ of 2014 is justified at $66 million.
This year’s biggest earners follow as David Guetta at number two, Avicii and Tiësto tied at three — pulling in $30M and $28M, respectively. Steve Aoki, Afrojack, and Zedd round out those who’ve earned north of $20M, and Kaskade, Skrillex, and Deadmau5 complete the top 10 not too far behind.
Next in the fold, Hardwell makes the list at $13M, just ahead of a $12M tie between Armin van Buuren and Steve Angello.
