Calvin Harris has been at the top of this list for years with the title of highest paid DJ, according to Forbes.  But it was only a matter of time before someone dethroned him.  On this year’s list, Calvin drops to third place.

This year’s highest paid DJ’s are- Drew & Alex, best known as The Chainsmokers!

These guys know what they’re doing; according to Forbes, 

“Over the past year, the Chainsmokers performed at the XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club as part of a three-year residency with Wynn Nightlife announced in 2017 (and recently extended until 2021). In between Vegas gigs, the duo played a multitude of festivals and private shows, pulling in mid six-figure sums per night. Their yearly total also factors in endorsements and recorded music sales.”
