Calvin Harris Becomes the Richest DJ in the World; Dethrones Tiësto

Posted at May 29th, 2015 | by Supreet.cheema | in

The Scottish Producer Calvin Harris dethroned Tiësto in 2015 to officially become the richest DJ in the world.

In 2012, an independent website Celebrity Networth released first list of richest DJs in terms of net worth. At the time, Tiesto was placed ahead of Calvin Harris by a whopping amount of $20 million.

In 2014, Forbes released their list of Highest payed DJs and noted that Calvin Harris was significantly out-earning Tiësto. Celebrity Net Worth just released the newest list calculating the net worth of 50 DJs.

In just 3 years, Calvin’s net worth has jumped from $70 million to $110 million while in the same period of time that Tiesto’s net worth has gone from $90 million to $105 million.

Avicii sits comfortable at #3 with $75 million. This is likely a consequence of time off taken by him due to health issues. Here are the top 15 DJ net worths.

1. Calvin Harris – $110 Million
2. Tiesto – $105 Million
3. Avicii – $75 Million
4. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo – $70 Million
