Calvin Harris named highest-paid DJ

The Scot raked in an estimated $66m (£39.8m) over the past 12 months. Thanks to his 50-plus gigs at festivals and clubs, he earned $20m (£12m) more than what he grossed in 2013, when he also topped the Forbes magazine list.

With nearly half of Harris' fortune, French DJ David Guetta comes in at number two on the new list with $30m (£18m), while Tiesto, Avicii and Steve Aoki round up the top five, respectively.

Other DJs and producers featured on the countdown include Afrojack, Skrillex, Zedd and Kaskade.

The top 10 DJs on the list have earned a combined total of $268m (£161.3m), which is up 11 per cent from 2013.
