Forbes Lists the World's Highest-Paid DJs

by Nikolozi Meladze

Here is the list of 10 highest-paid DJs in 2012 according to Forbes:

  1. Tiësto – $22m (£14m)
  2. Skrillex – $15m (£9.7m)
  3. Swedish House Mafia – $14m (£9m)
  4. David Guetta – $13.5m (£8.7m)
  5. Steve Aoki – $12m (£7.7m)
  6. Deadmau5 – $11.5m (£7.4m)
  7. DJ Pauly D – $11m (£7.1m)
  8. Kaskade – $10m (£6.5m)
  9. Afrojack – $9m (£5.8m)
  10. Avicii – $7m (£4.5m)

I’m surprised to find Skrillex higher than Deadmau5, then again he won a few Grammy awards earlier this year. But the most crazy thing about this top 10 list is the fact that Jersey Shores’ DJ Pauly D is in there. Publicity can do wonders.
