Revealed: the world's 30 richest DJs

Tiesto is the richest DJ in the world: official. Well, kind of.

Celebrity Net Worth have posted a list of the world’s 30 richest DJs, with the Jagermeister-obsessed Dutchman hitting top spot. Frankly, we’re a little dubious of the list – there’s no criteria or evidence really given as to how people ended up where they did, and as Mixmag point out, has Judge Jules really got more in the bank than 50 million footballer Fernando Torres? (They also use the example of Steve Aoki being worth more than Mario Balotelli, but those trampolines don’t come cheap).

Still, it’s entertaining reading, with Sasha, Pete Tong, Judge Jules and Daft Punk all hitting top 10, and newcomers Skrillex and Afrojack making the bottom end of the list. Amongst those who didn’t make the list this year: recent FACT mixer Beneath ($1,900 on potential), Bass Clef ($450 in the bank, and $600 worth of brass horns adding to overall wealth) and EVOL (both presumably in debt). Just kidding.

Though if we’re talking rich DJs, where’s Paris? And Peter Hook, for that matter?
