Calvin Harris crowned world’s highest paid DJ again after raking in a

There’s no need for Calvin Harris to remove himself from the Forbes DJ Rich List throne, once again topping the table with the most riches. He achieved the feat despite taking part in fewer shows – as he earned more for each one appearance.


Calvin Harris has certainly downplayed the amount of money he has stashed away in the bank in the past, but just how long can he deny it?

The Dumfries-born DJ and producer earned £41.8million, the same as the previous year, according to Forbes magazine.

Forbes said: “He’s had a pretty good year at the office”.

This year, Frenchman David Guetta “trailed” in second place with $37m. He is also the face of Giorgio Armani’s underwear, eye wear and watch lines, and is now dating pop star Taylor Swift. “I happened to be in the right place at the right time”, Harris told Forbes.

For the last two years in a row his earnings have totalled the above-mentioned £41.8m.

Americans Skrillex and Steve Aoki rounded out the top five, tying with $24m (£15.2m) each.


Harris recently came to her defence on Twitter and got into a spat with former One Direction singer Zayn Malik when he called her greedy.
