Calvin Harris still reigns supreme as the highest paid DJ in the world, according to Forbes. He’s topped the World’s Highest Paid DJs list for six years in a row now. The Scottish DJ-producer raked in $48 million in 2017, thanks to six-figure paychecks for his shows in Las Vegas and seven-figure checks for his headlining festival gigs.

Calvin’s success continues into this year: He signed an exclusive performance contract with Vegas and produced a global hit with Dua Lipa, “One Kiss.”

Coming in at No. 2 on the list are The Chainsmokers with $45.5 million, followed by Tiesto with $33 million. Other DJs in the top 15 include Marshmello at No. 5, Zedd at No. 6, Diplo at No. 7, David Guetta at No. 8 and Kygo at No. 12.
