Forbes Highest Paid DJ’s of 2013

Forbes has released its annual list of the top paid DJ’s. No surprises here!

Forbes annual top lists are typically well respected across all industries for their extensive research process. For our football fans out there, Forbes also released their list of top NFL franchises by net worth earlier today.

1. Calvin Harris – $46 million
2. Tiësto – $32 million
3. David Guetta – $30 million
4. Swedish House Mafia – $25 million
5. deadmau5 – $21 million
6. Avicii – $20 million
7. Afrojack – $18 million
8. Armin van Buuren – $17 million
9. & 10. Skrillex and Kaskade (tie) – $16 million
11. Steve Aoki – $14 million
12. & 13. DJ Pauly D and Diplo (tie) – $13 million

How were these figures obtained you might ask? Forbes offers the following explanation:
“Our annual earnings estimates include income from live shows, endorsements, merchandise sales, recorded music sales, external business ventures and, in the case of DJ Pauly D, television (we included him on this list because, like his fellow Electronic Cash Kings, he makes at least half his cash from DJ gigs). Sources include Songkick, Pollstar, RIAA, promoters, managers, lawyers and some of the artists themselves.”

So what do you think? Who deserves it? Who doesn’t?
