THE CHAINSMOKERS: World’s Highest-Paid DJs
Written by KingCnote on July 30, 2019
The highest-paid DJs for 2019 are The Chainsmokers.
The duo made $46 million over the last 12 months, thanks in part to a three-year Las Vegas residency deal at Wynn Nightlife.
This is the first time they’ve topped Forbes magazine list of Richest DJs. That spot belonged for six years to Calvin Harris. He dropped two place behind Marshmello, who nearly doubled his earnings to $40 million. Most of that money comes from the Palms Casino Resort that signed him to a residency contract with Kaos Nightclub.
Jersey Shore alum, DJ Pauly D, ranks 15th on the Forbes list for making more than $11 million – the same amount as DJ Snake.
