Vegas DJs make an insane amount of money..highest paid DJ earned $46m last year

It’s 1:30 a.m. as Saturday turns into Sunday in Las Vegas, and Neil Moffitt hasn’t had a drop to drink. His 3,000 guests, churning under strobe lights at Hakkasan, the brand-new 80,000-square-foot nightclub complex Moffitt oversees, are another story. Hopped up on vodka, Red Bull and who knows what else, they’re gyrating to the latest electronic concoctions of Calvin Harris, a DJ who last year made $46 million, more than Derek Jeter and Kanye West–combined.


quote:

That club’s opening has accelerated a talent war, as the clubs pay up for proven draws to protect their investments, to the benefit of those like Harris, Tiësto ($32 million last year) and David Guetta ($30 million).



And if that isnt crazy, check the 12th highest paid DJ out last year:

quote:

12. DJ Pauly D - $13 million (tie)

The Jersey Shore star earns half as much per night as some of his DJ brethren, but with 90 performances over the past year and a host of outside business ventures, he makes the Electronic Cash Kings list for the second year in a row. Though the show that made him famous wrapped up in December, he’s still collecting cash from its tail end; he also boasts his own Dirty Couture line, vodka-based drink REMIX and deals with 50 Cent’s SK Energy and SMS Audio.

Yah Hakkasan signed Calvin for like 20 months and Tiesto somewhere around the same.. They play just about every other weekend there.

All are fricking awesome and are very talented.

Its not like those guys do nothing. They make the clubs a hit. Not a single employee at those clubs makes less than 100k a year. The bouncers can make 500k+.

If the talent didn't attract people, it wouldn't be so successful for everyone.

You can't have a blast in those places without spending 500+ and usually people spend over $1000. The average earnings per customer is RIDICULOUS.

seriously.

They report barely any of it to the IRS either. Cash payoffs to skip the lines. Sometimes those are in the thousands for huge nights with celebs there.

They have massive parties weekly and tens of thousands of people there in total over the span of a bunch of giant parties.

yeah, calvin harris is all over the radio and produced a shite load of hits for other artists in recent years. I doubt he is the highest paid solely based on DJing in Vegas.

I would have never guessed there was that kind of cash flowing through clubs that the DJs would be multi millionaires. Put this in perspective, Wayne Newton makes $25 million and Celine Dion makes $38 million per year. To think that DJs could make as much or more money than Vegas' highest profile stars is insane.

Everyone thinks they can do what they do. There are millions of terrible DJs out there. David Guetta is the fricking man.

Calvin Harris plays at concerts and sells music. 46mil is definitely not his dj salary, sorry guys

Seriously.

Of course not janitors and shit, but when those clubs are a hit for a couple years (tiny lifespans at the peak), the employees make bank. They have very little job security obviously though.
