Calvin Harris, David Guetta, & Tiësto Remain The World’s Highest Paid DJs

For several years Forbes has used its economic minds to estimate the world’s highest paid DJs, or, in their words, “electronic cash kings.” The same three DJs have dominated the chart for the past three years, and 2016 is no different. Calvin Harris comes in first with a whopping $63 million, though that’s down from last year’s $66 million. Hopefully his loss won’t break the bank. Dutchman Tiësto surpasses Frenchman David Guetta for the second spot with $38 million, and Guetta comes in at $28 million. Zedd of “Clarity” fame shoots up from eighth in 2015 to fourth in 2016 with $24.5 million, and brand new to the list is Belgian newcomer duo Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike. See the complete list below.
