全球最高”薪”音樂人Highest Paid DJ’s 2013
Top 1 Calvin Harris – $46 million
今年Calvin Harris擊敗了Jay-Z與Katy Perry，成為了全球最高”薪”音樂人榜首！！
Calvin Harris made more money than Jay-Z or Katy Perry this year, so it sure doesn’t come as a surprise that he is the best paid DJ. He made his money by doing shows all over the world, and of course by creating hitsongs like ‘Thinking About You’, ‘Under Control’ (with Alesso) and a couple other songs from his album.
Top 2 Tiësto – $32 million
今年的Tiesto比他以往都還要富有，待在Las Vegas與IBIZA的這段時間為他帶來了一筆可觀的收入，富比世雜誌認為他有可能在明年2014擊敗Calvin Harris成為最高薪音樂人。
Tiësto has played over 140 shows last year and he is making more money than ever. Tiësto exchanged Ibiza for a Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan. This adds a nice amount of money to his bank account. Tiësto is planning on doing an album next year with Universal (he explained to Hardwell in a Q&A during ADE), so maybe he will beat Calvin Harris as best paid DJ in 2014!
Top 3 David Guetta – $30 million
David Guetta曾在2011年成為世界百大DJ榜首，他的音樂也讓更多不喜歡電子音樂的人對電子音樂有了更深的瞭解，2011年的David Guetta對於現在席捲全球的EDM與House風潮是功不可沒的，不僅與許多音樂圈知名的製作人與明星合作，也不斷支持與幫助非常有能力的音樂人，眼光獨到的他在Afrojack與Nicky Romero更視為良師益友。
David Guetta, the winner of the DJ Mag Top 100 poll in 2011, has worked with the biggest artists in the industry, so it wouldn’t come as a surprise that he makes a lot of money. Not only is he working with the big artists, he also likes to support upcoming talent, resulting in being the mentor of Afrojack and Nicky Romero, who are now big boys in the scene.
Top 4 Swedish House Mafia – $25 million
Swedish House Mafia在今年Ultra Music Festival表演完Last Tour之後現已解散，不過解散後在今年的世界百大DJ排行中，Swedish House Mafia還能穩坐排行榜第26名，其單曲Don’t You Worry Child更是創下全球550萬購買的佳績。
Although the Swedish House Mafia split up in March 2013 (their set at Ultra Music Festival was their ending of the ‘One Last Tour’), they still made enough money to be in the top 5 on this year’s list. Their album Until One was sold over a million times and over 5.5 million copies of ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ were sold. A couple weeks ago, Swedish House Mafia teased us with a small clip of what seems to be a new documentary.
Top 5 Deadmau5 – $21 million
Deadmau5 doesn’t perform as much as his colleagues, but thanks to nightly fees in excess of $200,000 at Hakkasan and other clubs and festivals around the world, he is closing the top 5 of this list. He is also running is own label called Mau5trap, but he hasn’t released any official material in a while now. However, he does upload new things on his Soundcloud account every now and then, and it’s not the usual stuff.
