Last year financial net worth estimation website Celebritynetworth.com shocked many of us when presenting the world with a list of the ‘The Richest DJs In The World’ that garnered such an interest from the great general public that they had to introduce new servers to cope with the massive increase in traffic to their site.

Now several artists have made the somewhat more credible Forbes rich list for 2013 with Scottish wedding DJ Calvin Harris weighing in as the fourth richest celebrity under 30 by the long established American business magazine.

Forbes estimate the Dumfries producers net worth to be $46m with the bulk of his estate to have been accumulated by his live performances. With a reported deal to play 70 dates in Las Vegas by a big spending Sin City promotional outfit as well as taking lucrative private gigs such as a £320,000 fee for playing F1 magnate Bernie Ecclestone’s Daughter’s wedding the figure whilst astronomically high probably isn’t very far off the mark in regards to Calvin’s wealth.

As a producer his earnings can’t be too shabby either with a gold certified debut album back in 2007 entitled ‘I Created Disco’ and two top ten singles before releasing global smash ‘We Found Love’ with Rihanna which sold over eight million copies and remains one of the biggest selling singles of all time. Then there is his record breaking third studio album which set the bar for most top 10 hits on a single album. Yes, he’s come along way since being first discovered on Myspace with only American pop stars Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift ahead of him in the financial stakes.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
