Scottish DJ Calvin Harris tops Forbes' Highest Paid DJs List after earning an estimated $46 million over the past 12 months coming mostly from live performances on the road and including income from endorsements, production deals and song royalties. It's considered an astonishing feat since the 29-year-old record producer didn't even make it to last year's list when Forbes compiled it for the first time.

Now his estimated earnings were more than enough to take the No. 1 spot from last year's highest paid DJ Tiesto, who despite improving his annual earnings from $22 million to $32 million could only manage second place. Even the third and fourth highest paid EDM acts this year overshadowed the Dutch DJ's previous $22 million pay packet with French DJ David Guetta pulling in $30 million and Swedish House Mafia bringing in $25 million.
