Forbes Announces The Top Earnings DJs of 2013

Financial publication Forbes has released a list of the top earning DJs of the year and whilst the results may be somewhat unsettling, we can’t say we’re especially surprised.

Sadly the likes of Ben UFO and Theo Parrish are nowhere to be found, with them being usurped by the slightly more gaudy sounds of Calvin Harris and co., with the Scot making an estimated $46m in the past 12 months. Other people to appear in the list are every dubstepper’s favourite Skrillex, as well as a surprise entry from the inimitable DJ Pauly D of Jersey Shore Fame. Maybe it’s time for Hyponik to change it’s approach to start raking in that kind of cash.

Here’s the full list, coupled with their estimated earnings. Just try not to feel too queasy as you go down the chart:

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. Skrillex – $16 million (tie)
10. Kaskade – $16 million (tie)
11. Steve Aoki – $14 million
12. DJ Pauly D – $13 million (tie)
13. Diplo – $13 million (tie)
