It’s no secret that DJs make a ridiculous amount of money, especially nowadays. With rising ticket prices for festivals and shows, and more sources of revenue thanks to new technology that allows their music to reach further than ever before, being a big name DJ is certainly a lucrative career. How lucrative, you ask? Well, if you’re at the top of the industry, you’re making serious dough.
Thanks to Red Bulletin, we now know the net worth of some of EDM’s hottest producers, including Calvin Harris, Skrillex and Diplo. Of course, Calvin is, and for a while now has been, the richest DJ, with a net worth of $160 million. Skrillex, meanwhile, is worth a nifty $36 million while his Jack Ü parter, Diplo, comes in at a cool $15 million.
To be fair, most of these artists have rigorous touring schedules and are pumping out new music at a respectable rate. But still, these numbers are staggering, especially Calvin’s figure. Plus, with EDM only looking to continue to grow in popularity, and seeing as it hasn’t even fully penetrated the mainstream market just yet, you can bet that these artists will keep on making the big bucks for a long time to come.
