LiveNation has recently reported that concert revenues are currently at $2.26 billion; that's a nearly unprecedented 35% rise in the last six months. The concert giant was reportedly feeling the strain as concert attendance fluctuated but since big names like Beyonce, Kanye West and Drake, to name a few, have hit the road, concert attendance rates are going through the roof. Besides these big names, the music industry has also been blessed with a strong lineup of talented DJs. Attendance for music festivals featuring DJs and electronic artists are up 15%, for good reason. With that being said, big demand means big paychecks and today's DJs are raking in an impressive amount of funds at a surprisingly rapid pace. Here are the highest paid DJs in the world right now:

Calvin Harris - $46 Million | Suggested Track: "Feel So Close"
