Forbes has published its world's highest paid digital DJs 2013 list with a new topper. Tiësto has to step down from his top position to second as Scottish DJ cum producer, Calvin Harris, is now on top. New Electronic Cash King has earned $46 million in past 12 months by playing in more than 100 live shows. He pulled more than $200,000 in terms of nightly fees but he topped because of his "hits penned for the likes of Rihanna and LMFAO, as well as a hefty publishing advance." Harris told Forbes, “The rise of dance music has been astronomical in the last three years. I happened to be in the right place at the right time.”

Dutch DJ Tiësto is the man behind Harris with $32 million earnings from over 100 shows in past 12 months. He was the topper of last year when he earned $22 million. 45 years old French DJ David Guetta is on 3rd position with $30 million earned in past year by playing in more than 120 live shows and other collaborations. 

Swedish electronic supergroup called House Mafia is on 4th rank with $25 million. This amount is earned till March 2013 as the group broke in March and no solo earnings of the members are included in this amount. 5th position goes to Mouse-helmeted Deadmau5 with $21 million pulled by live shows, recorded music and massive merchandise licensing deals.

Other famous names present on the Forbes' highest paid digital DJs list includes youngest 23-years old DJ Avicii, Jersey Shore alumni Pauly D and Grammy's favorite Skrillex who won the award for 6 times. A total of $268 million was earned by top 12 DJs.
