That is not just what they make in Vegas. Tiesto performs around the world and to sold out stadiums.

When they performed at Ultra here, tickets were $150-$200 a pop and sold out weeks in advance to both story and Liv.

DJs are the biggest fricking tools of any party you will ever attend.

I LOL and point at them every year during tailgating at LSU.

They really believe they are super cool.

If I'm not mistaken, I wanna say maybe 2 years ago I watched some show on tv that did an undercover story about the Vegas bouncers. They were showing they made pennies to the IRS and most that were investigated made over 250k a year in just cash handouts

So basically these events are just concerts?

Tiesto


I saw him a few mardi gras ago at the CAC along with Ghostland. I think tickets were $75 but not sure. I don't see how he makes that much money.

That's what they are concerts.

EDC Vegas and Tomorrowland in Belgium are 2 of the largest music festivals in the world for any genre. Calvin Harris headlines these events.

I recently had a better time at Lavo in the Pallazzo than I did at Tryst in the Wynn/Encore (where the big name DJ was playing).

Yea Tryst was much bigger, but that shits all the same to me. Loud dance music and fine women everywhere.

I'm confused reading this. Caterpillar seems to be saying that this DJ made 46 million strictly from DJ'ing. Others say no, not true, it's combined from everything including producing, etc.

Are there any DJ's making $46M, or close, strictly from DJ'ing, nothing else?

And is it true that everyone in the club earns at least $100K? Every single person employed?

What a great weekend that is. That and this week for the MAGIC (fashion) convention are my 2 favorite weeks of the year. 2 nights ago met a few Playboy bunnies and spent last night with an insanely hot boutique owner from Miami.

I guess.

Weird to think, every single person in that club employed makes $100K. Part time college kid busing tables?

$100K

I doubt that. Calvin Harris is one of the biggest DJ/Producers around right now. His music is all over the radio. He plays concerts around the world.

I fully believe he makes bank in Vegas and makes the clubs make bank because he is an international celebrity playing in a nightclub (something a big name celeb of another genre isn't doing).. but I'm sure the $46m figure is his total income.

I find that hard to believe, but even if true, they don't have part time college kids in the clubs in Vegas.

I've always heard it's VERY hard to get a big name industry job there.

Jones' best friend bartends at a high end strip club/resort type place there and makes enough to support himself (who travels to NOLA, NYC, Brazil, and London every month or so), his wife who lives between Brazil and Vegas and London, and their new baby. I know his dad is still giving some, but I know he does well working a big name club in Vegas too.
