Total Annual DJ Earnings Approach To Saturation Already

Posted at June 1st, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

It should come as no surprise that Calvin Harris is the highest earning DJ/Producer in the the dance music industry. Rather, he earns more than the top earning basket ball player and F1 driver. Recently held International Music Summit in Ibiza has released their latest business report which presents data of annual trends in various areas of electronic music industry.

One of the reports that were discussed during the summit was the earnings of the DJ/Producers. As per Forbes report, the salary of these artists slowed down in growth from 2014 to 2015. Calvin Harris’ 2015 earnings are estimated to match his earning in 2014, i.e, 66 Million Dollars. While David Guetta’s earnings increased by 23%, i.e. from 30 Million Dollars to 37 Million Dollars. Moreover, total earnings for remainder of Top 9 actually fell by 7%.



Last year, Tiësto overthrew Avicii for the third spot on Highest earning DJ/Producers list. It is still to see what the trends would be in 2016 for it’s the farewell year for Avicii.

It is a little surprising to see that the earnings inflation which was staggering 97% in 2013 has dropped to 3% in 2015. It makes one wonder if electronic music scene has reached the saturation. Sure many artists have emerged during 2014-2015 but the earnings bar has almost remained the same as 2014.
