We all know every year Forbes releases a list of the highest grossing musicians; we know this because our beloved rappers often flaunt their ranking every chance they get. But did you know the longtime print stalwart also groups together the biggest earners among electronic DJs? Well, it does. Taking into account revenue from live shows, endorsements, merchandise sales, studio sales and external business ventures, it seems Calvin Harris topped the list passing last year’s champion Tiësto. Having signed on to play more than 70 shows over a two-year period at the Las Vegas megaclub Hakkasan, Harris is reported to have made more than both Jay Z and Kate Perry. Honorable mentions go to David Guetta, deadmau5, Skillrex, Steve Aoki, Diplo and even DJ Pauly D. For a more information head over to Forbes.
