In the last two years, EDM DJs have become some of the most influential figures in pop culture, as well the main attractions at massive music festivals like Coachella and South by Southwest. Not only are they selling millions of records, but for the first time in history, some of the top DJs are even playing sold out shows at massive arenas like Madison Square Garden and the Staples Center.

A popular DJ can easily earn $100,000 for a single night’s work, whereas the upper echelon of DJs can earn anywhere between $500,000 and $1 million. That’s almost enough money to feed Latrell Spreewells family!

Not only do they get paid to perform live, DJs also make a ton of money from merchandise sales, licensing, record sales and endorsements. Whether or not you’d like to accept it, with private jets, mansions, groupies, and celebrity girlfriends, EDM DJs have become the rockstars of our generation.
