Forbes' list of highest paid DJs in 2017

Calvin Harris ruled Forbes' annual list of electronic cash kings on Tuesday as he was named the highest paid DJ for the fifth consecutive year.
The How Deep Is Your Love DJ, 33, brought in $48.5 million between June 2016 and June 2017, outpacing fellow DJs Tiesto and newcomers The Chainsmokers.
The Scottish beatmaker's earnings came from a combination of residencies in Las Vegas and festival performances as well as from producing pop hits such as his latest summer track, Feels with Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.
Tiesto, who topped the list in 2012, earned $39million and came in at No. 2.
The Chainsmokers earned $38million, bolstered by the chart-topping success of pop hits Closer with Halsey and Something Just Like This with Coldplay.
