DJing was once a cool job that was more about the perks than the payout, but now it seems there’s quite a few DJs the world over who are proving this job is even cooler than previously supposed.

Here are the top 5 earners for 2015, according to Forbes Magazine:

1. Calvin Harris

Pulling in an astounding $66 million, Calvin Harris’ repertoire of popular songs includes “We Found Love” featuring Rihanna, “I’m Not Alone,” and “Bounce” featuring Kelis, to name a few. In 2015, this Scottish hunk had a great year rubbing elbows with the likes of Giorgio Armani and snogging with beautiful pop singer Taylor Swift.

2. David Guetta

Coming in at about half the annual salary ($37 million), French DJ David Guetta doesn’t seem to mind being second. That’s still quite a bit of money, isn’t it? Plus, he spent much time over in the states in the famed “Sin City” of Las Vegas all the while holding down his residency in Ibiza. Impressive indeed!

3. Tiësto

Just a hair behind at $36 million is the iconic Dutch DJ, Tiësto. He’s been a mainstay in the scene long before some of the younger DJs have turned up. The younger guys were likely still in school while this DJ was throwing down at some of the sickest raves in the world. These days, he’s still doing what he does best and was noted as playing over 100 dates last year alone.

4. Skrillex

At $24 million, this American DJ was a busy bee indeed with over 95 shows last year. Some of his most popular tracks are “Bangarang,” “Kill Everybody” and “Dirty Vibe.”

5. Steve Aoki

Tied with Skrillex, American DJ Steve Aoki played less shows last year, however he managed to gain a larger following in South America. “Delirious,” “Freak” and “Back to Earth” are some of his most notable tracks.

Just outside the top 5, Avicii comes in at number 6; Kaskade at number 7; Martin Garrix and Zedd both tied at number 8; Afrojack at number 10; and DeadMau5 and Diplo tied at number 11. Despite earning less than the top 5, we doubt we’ll be seeing any of these guys crying at the bank. Even the lowest earners at $15 million certainly have nothing to cry about and around 15 million reasons to be happy.
