Pretty surprised to see both ATB & Darude still earn so much. Dinosaurs

Did you actually build the bridge, Guetta? Or did you stand in front the construction site pretending to mix concrete?

This is so so so wrong.

Sasha worth 45 million and SHM worth only 4m each.

I think Guetta would have a fair bit more money than Judge Jules!

Well, these figures look like a load of rubbish, don't they? But the author of this piece should really be able to tell the difference between net worth and annual income. Her words distort the figures even more.

^^ edmund, I don't think I inferred that net worth and annual income are the same thing - just that Forbes' account of Skrilly's $15mil income and Celebrity Net Worth's $8mil net worth figure don't really add up. Like you said, I wouldn't take these sums as gospel.

edmund, your observations are about as astute as CNW's. There's a very apparent and likely deliberate separation within the article between Forbes' salary figures and CNW's net worth totals.

Darude? They really weren't trying, were they?

Id say the list is b.s .... pretty skeptical with it coming from a site that provides no references to how they came to the actual figures

Oh Sasha, how your mixes are always amazing, has anyone bothered to watch him mix on Youtube, I remember when he pioneered the idea of using a computer to mix, and by computer I mean he lugged around an iMac, oh those were the days...

^^ Yeah Sasha was a true pioneer. Dont forget he also pioneered looking like he was pissed off and bored by getting paid 80000 to play a 2 hour set to 50000 people on a beach in Brazil. I suppose not looking up at the crowd the entire set is easy when all you have to look at are all those ugly half naked Brazilian chicks. Im just annoyed he makes more money than me.

Hey Katie, it does suggest that "Paul Oakenfold, Paul van Dyk, John Digweed and Armin van Buuren, all earning upwards of $40 million a year" when 'net worth' is all accumulated income and assets (saved over life/career).

Not surprising seeing as Trance is the best music in the world! But seriously, this is easier explained if you look at how long each of these artists has been in the business and the hits they've had. It's not a list of who made the most in the last year.

oh come on!!! Australias own "2greendollars" eclipsed tiesto to the tune of $80 million net worth! Guiness World Record Winner and DJ for Michael Jacksons "this is it" launches, he seems to be missed out on because - he's Australian, and aussies can't DJ, right?

oh, and 2greendollars last gig was invoiced out at US$500,000....but that pays for freight of 3 sea containers, 82 performing and non-performing staff, airfares, accommodation and per-diems etc.etc. so really, "net worth" is completely inaccurate - moreover "gross worth" could be more accurate, and then its still inaccurate.

Oakenfold...that was his demands (or maybe a little less ridiculous amount )in circa 2000...surely not now...

Good to see Sasha and Digweed in there.

Is it fair to assume that almost all of he above listed are label owners as well?

ATB and Darude? Really in 2012?

Would be good to find out how much is for performance and how much is for producing music...
Most of these cheesy commercial noobs like Afrojack, Avicii are all really not doing much DJing... more fist pumping and hiding behind LED screens pretending that they're doing something special.
Oh well, I suppose I'm just jealous that I'm not making gazillions doing nothing...

Can't believe Paul Oakenfold is still up there, and he's at number 2! He's been in the top 10 for 10 to 15 years now. I'm surprised there are no US house DJs there. I would have expected Farina to be up there.

this is in greek drachmas... One million drachmas is worth $3655 AUD. Using this maths we can make out Tiesto to be worth $237, 575....

Surely you are joking about Paris ....she could pay herself, then she might be worth something, Sasha is a way better DJ than you Guetta, that's why.
