You will not be shocked to learn that there is money to be made in playing dance music to vast crowds of inebriated Europeans. You may, however, be shocked to learn just how much money there is to be made. Celebrity Net Worth recently put together a list of the world’s 30 richest DJs and their estimated net worths, and it’s pretty fascinating; Digweed, for example, is significantly richer than Sasha. And it’s heartening to see Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers among the elite. The main thing I get out of this particular list, though, is so much money. Check it out below.

30 Afrojack ($2 million)
29 Markus Schulz ($2 million)
28 Darude ($2.5 million)
27 Kaskade ($3 million)
26 Martin Solveig ($3 million)
25 Eric Prydz ($4 million)
24 Swedish House Mafia ($4 million each)

Apparently, Diplo needs to diversify his bonds.
