Electronic dance music superstar Calvin Harris has been named the world’s highest-paid DJ for the second year in a row.

Harris raked in an estimated $66 million over the past 12 months. Thanks to his 50-plus gigs at festivals and clubs, he earned $20 million more than what he grossed in 2013, when he also topped the Forbes magazine list.

With nearly half of Harris’ fortune, French DJ David Guetta comes in at number two on the new list with $30 million, while Tiesto, Avicii and Steve Aoki round up the top five, respectively.

Other DJs and producers featured on the countdown include Afrojack, Skrillex, Zedd and Kaskade.

The top 10 DJs on the list have earned a combined total of $268 million, which is up 11 percent from 2013.
