Forbes‘ Highest Paid DJs 2014 Is Pretty Similar To 2013

<> at Izod Center on June 29, 2014 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Last summer Forbes released a list of the world’s highest-paid DJs topped off by Calvin Harris, Tiesto, and David Guetta. This year’s list is out, and guess what? It’s topped by Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and (in a third-place tie with Avicii) Tiesto. Harris is pulling in $66 million, more than double his closest competition. Notable movers include Zedd, who’s at #7 after not cracking the list last year, and cake-thrower at large Steve Aoki, who charged up from #11 to #5. Meanwhile, Nyan Cat enthusiast Deadmau5 falls from #5 to #10, and the likes of Armin van Buuren and Swedish House Mafia have fallen off the list entirely. They’re all filthy rich though. Here’s the full list via EDM Tunes:

01. Calvin Harris ($66 million)
02. David Guetta ($30 million)
03. Tiësto ($28 million)
03. Avicii ($28 million)
05. Steve Aoki ($23 million)
06. Afrojack ($22 million)
07. Zedd ($21 million)
08. Kaskade ($17 million)
09. Skrillex ($16.5 million)
10. Deadmau5 ($16 million)

In case you’re wondering about poor old Diplo, he made $10 million and is doing just fine.
