There was another list floating around a few months ago about the top paid DJs in EDM culture. If you missed the list, you can see it here. It was compiled by some website called Celebrity Net Worth. The new list is coming from, what I imagine to be a much smarter round up of people, Forbes magazine. They too acknowledge the fact that "electronic dance music, better known as EDM, has finally surged from its underground roots and into mainstream consciousness."
Of course Tiesto tops the list with an impressive $22 million, with an average nightly gross of $250,000 according to concert data provider Pollstar. Skrillex comes in at number two with a cool $15 million, followed by Swedish House Mafia pulling in an estimated $14 million. Tip of the hat to them for being able to walk away from money like that. David Guetta is number 4 with $13.5 million. Steve Aoki with #12 million. You can read the full Forbes article here. I came across the news reading Fact magazine.
