The World’s Highest Paid DJ’s

Forbes has announced their list of the world’s highest paid DJ’s. According to the magazine, the estimates include earnings from live shows, music sales, endorsements merchandise and in Paul D’s case, also television.

As far as how they gathered the financial information, Forbes says they used ‘Pollstar, RIAA, promoters, managers, lawyers and some of the artists themselves’ as sources which you would think makes the accuracy of this list suspect but hey, what’s not suspect these days?

As you might expect, electronic music reigns supreme, maybe next year we’ll see some more variety. Also, where the ladies at?

    Nice list, I’d go 1. Swedish House 2. Avicii 3. David Guetta 4. Tiesto 5. Kaskade 6. Axwell 7. Alesso 8. Afrojack 9. Steve Aoki 10. Deadmau5 Skrillex was more 2010 and isn’t so much EDM as dubstep, Deadmau5 was much bieggr at the beginning of the year but definitely faded To add Steve Aoki kills every set easily one of the craziest out there, everything alesso produces is beautiful, and axwell deserves his own recognition from SHM because of songs like Ressurection, Teenage Crime, and other on his new label Axtone Records.
