The Worlds Highest-Paid DJs
Forbes today unveiled its list of the ten highest-paid DJ’s in world electronic dance music. Dubbing them the “Electronic Cash Kings,” the list tabulates the money each DJ made in the past 12 months, with Dutch dance master Tiësto topping the list.
Tiësto raked in a reported $22 million in the past year, with a nightly average of approximately $250,000, according to Pollstar, while Skrillex ($15 million) and Swedish House Mafia ($14 million) come in just behind.
Other highlights of the list include Steve Aoki (No. 5) who earned his $12 million by performing over 200 times, and The Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D, who came in at No. 7 after bringing in $11 million from his sets — still only about half his yearly earnings. – Billboard.biz
