This comes as no surprise, once again, as the producer of radio bangers such as “This Is What You Came For” and “Sweet Nothing” has been chart dominant and has been around the world playing at many world-class venues.

Between June 2016 and June 2017, the 33 year-old Harris reportedly made $48.5 million. Those earnings are attributed to Harris’ current reputation as an in-demand producer, and his “mid-six-figure fees for his Las Vegas performances and seven-figure music festival hauls.”

Commanding six-figures for a couple-hour DJ set will definitely get you to the top of the most-paid list.

Rounding out the subsequent spots on the list are DJ Tiesto ($39 million), The Chainsmokers ($38 million), Skrillex ($30 million), Steve Aoki ($29.5 million), Diplo ($28.5 million), David Guetta ($25 million), Marshmello ($21 million), Martin Garrix ($19.5 million) and Zedd ($19 million).
