    Forbes has just unveiled its annual list of the world's highest paid DJs. Just like the previous three years, Calvin Harris sits atop the top list, even though he did take a $3 million dip. The Scottish DJ - who makes more than $400,000 per gig in Las Vegas - beat out second place Tiësto by more than $25 million. "Dutch-born Tiësto earned $38 million, playing more than 100 gigs in the past 12 months on top of an estimated seven-figure deal with 7-UP. French DJ David Guetta scored the theme song for the Euro 2016 soccer tournament–and $28 million on the year, thanks mostly to his steady gig at Wynn's Vegas properties," reports Forbes.

    However, despite the massive earnings, this is the first year that has the top ten earners had their joint overall pay go down over the course of a year - even though it dropped only one percent. Steve Aoki said, "The bubble has already burst in America. You can see it in Vegas' DJ landscape." Check out the top 10 paid DJs below:

    Forbes' World's Highest Paid DJs are:

    1. Calvin Harris: $63 million
    2. Tiësto: $38 million
