The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, & Calvin Harris Land On Forbes Highest-Paid Entertainers 2019
At this time, Forbes revealed its 2019 record for 100 Highest-Paid Entertainers on the earth. The record consists of athletes, musicians, actors, “personalities,” authors, comedians, and even one magician. The 2 high spots are taken by Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner, whose empires lengthen far past only one class.
As for EDM, solely three artists made it on this 12 months’s record: The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, & Calvin Harris.
For years, Calvin Harris has reigned atop all of Forbes’ money kings lists on the subject of dance music producers and DJs, however clearly his lack of touring outdoors of Vegas residencies has caught up with him. The Chainsmokers and Marshmello are pulling in $46M and $40M respectively in 2019 up to now, with Calvin Harris not far behind at $38.5M.
Marshmello’s 2-year residency with Kaos Nightclub value $60 million absolutely helped him right here, whereas The Chainsmokers proceed to get booked all over the place and put up big streaming numbers.
Calvin Harris returns to the pageant scene this 12 months at Creamfields, so possibly we’ll see extra headlining performances from him in 2020 and past if he feels compelled to retake his high spot.
Total, the minimal required to be eligible for the record this 12 months was $37.5 million, “up 7% from a 12 months in the past, because the world’s 100 highest-paid superstars clocked $6.three billion in pretax earnings over the previous 12 months,” as Forbes explains.
