Most people feel weird about talking about how much they earn, although all the filthy rich people that talk to Forbes obviously don’t have a problem with it, which is even more remarkable when you consider the fact that they know that Forbes is going to tell everyone else in the world. It’s almost as if they want everyone to know. Well, in this latest Forbes world’s highest-paid profession list, the spotlight is on our planet’s most-moneyed DJs.

Calvin Harris leads the pack by some distance, having banked some $63 million, significantly more than his second and third placed competitors, Tiësto and David Guetta, who took home $38 million and $28 million respectively. The top five “Electronic Cash Kings” list is rounded off by Zedd and Steve Aoki who earned $24.5 million and $23.5 million a piece.

For the breakdown of the list in its entirety, and for more info on how exactly these DJs bank accounts got full, head over to Forbes.
