If you can find success as an EDM artist, then you are fixin’ to make yourself a boatload of money! Just look at Tiesto and Daft Punk — they are the two richest EDM artists in the world and seriously raking in the dough.

Tiesto’s has a whopping $75 million in his bank account, with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo both worth around $60 million. What the what?! How many of you reading this just went and purchased turntables on eBay?

How are these guys worth so much? Well, Tiesto earns around $250,000 for every performance and hauled in $20 million alone last year, and that’s AFTER the Netherlands 52% income taxation. The guys of Daft Punk owe their monetary success to music sales, royalties, merchandise and more. Just goes to show all those aspiring artists out there that the key to success and longevity is making amazing music!

Skrillex has made a name for himself in the past couple years and his net worth is certainly reflecting that! He’s doubled his worth from $8 million to $16 million — making $15 million in the past 12 months.

Other artists making appearances on the list are David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Diplo, Afrojack, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Avicii, and (suprisingly) former ‘Jersey Shore’ cast member, DJ Pauly D.
