As the dance music grows out of the horizon and becomes an even bigger sport to make that paper, the players grow along with it. Every year Forbes gets together a list of the DJs who are making the most of their jobs and this years list is year.

 

 

The highest paid DJs list come 2017 has really shaken up. Usually it’s pretty similar to the one before but it feels like a whole new generation of DJs have come into play with this years. The whole list will be out September 5th but here’s what we know. As usual Calvin Harris is first, pulling in a whooping $48.5 Million last year who is followed by Tiesto at $39 Million & The Chainsmokers are 3rd with $38 Million.

 

 

David Guetta is at the #7 spot with $25 Million. At the #8 spot is one of the fastest rising producers in the Dance Music scene; Marshmello who will be earning $21 Million plus whatever dotcom is pulling this year. #9 will be Martin Garrix at $19.5 Million. The dance music industry has blossomed a lot in the last one year, nobody was even close to Calvin Harris last year but this year the gap is much smaller.
