Forbes has put out their annual list of the World’s Highest Paid Celebrities and cot damn these people make a shit load of money. There are some surprising names on there, as well as some very obvious ones. One thing that is not surprising is that the highest paid DJ in the whole world is Calvin Harris. And paid he is! How about to the tune of $48 million! Harris placed number 50 on the list that includes mostly athletes and actors. The only other EDM artist to make the list were The Chainsmokers. Congrats to them getting $45.5 mil and placing #59 on the list.
Harris got on this list not just because he commands a hefty paycheck to spin, but because he is also making money in publishing, endorsements, production deals and song royalties. Harris is a Grammy winner as well as having his face on the side of the MGM Grand where he is a house DJ for more than one club in town. There is no end in sight at this moment for Harris. He is still putting out hits and should continue to reign supreme.
You can catch Harris playing at Omnia, Wet Republic and Hakkasan Nightclub in Las Vegas. If you are looking to see Harris live or get a VIP table: CLICK CALVINHARRISVEGAS.COM
