Calvin Harris is once again the world’s highest paid DJ.
Today’s news about Scottish DJ/producer Calvin Harris has nothing to do with his girlfriend Taylor Swift but instead with how much money he has made in the past year. The 31-year-old DJ has once again topped Forbes‘ Electronic Cash Kings list.
Thanks to higher performance fees and very profitable endorsement deals with Armani and Sol Republic, Calvin made a total of $66 million over the past 12 months, matching his record-setting totals for 2014’s list.
Coming second, and way behind Calvin on the EDM list is Frenchman David Guetta, who made $37 million after a hectic year of shows in Las Vegas, Ibiza, and some major headliner gigs at festivals such as Coachella. Right behind him is Dutchman Tiësto while American DJ/producers Skrillex and Steve Aoki are tied at 4th place with $24 million each.
