Hire Celebrity DJ for Your Event
According to Forbes’ annual list, Calvin Harris is once again EDM’s (Electronic Dance Music) Cash King, pulling in $66 million for 2014. The top ten earners on the list racked up a staggering $268 million this year, 11% more than the $241 million haul of last year’s top ten.
No. 1: Calvin Harris $66 million – Born Adam Richard Wiles, the former grocery store stocker earned $66 million in the scoring period, playing more than 125 gigs. He’s found great success in the pop world, working with the likes of Rihanna and Kesha, which has helped him land headline gigs not only at EDM-focused events but also at festivals like Coachella. Harris continues to play regularly in Las Vegas where he has a multi-year deal at America’s biggest nightclub, Hakkasan.
No. 2: David Guetta $30 million
No. 3 (TIE): Avicii $28 million
No. 3 (TIE): Tiesto $28 million

No. 7: Zedd $21 million
No. 8: Kaskade $17 million
No. 9: Skrillex $16.5 million
No. 10: Deadmau5 $16 million – The mouse-head costume-wearing DJ barely played one-tenth the amount of shows that some of the higher-ranked names on this list did, but he made them count, playing mostly lucrative festival gigs that can earn him in the neighborhood of half a million dollars for a night’s work. A booming merch business also pads his bottom line.
No. 11: Hardwell $13 million
No. 12 (TIE): Armin van Buuren $12 million
No. 12 (TIE): Steve Angello $12 million
