Artists like Calvin Harris, Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran have been pulling in some serious dollar this year. We count down 12 of Forbes 30 highest paid musicians of the year.
Last year Dr Dre topped the Forbes highest earning musicians list with a total of $620 million (that's £413 million). This year, he just scraped it into the list at number 30. Picture: Getty
Drizzy earned more this year than ever before, largely thanks to 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late' going gold, plus headlining many festivals.
Bruno Mars is one of the world's biggest stars, and with another album on the way that's not set to change any time soon.
Queen Bey earned half of what she made last year - but we doubt she's complaining. Picture: Getty
One place ahead of his wife, Jay Z is in at number 13 on Forbe's list of highest paid musicians this year. Picture: Getty
This has the be one of the most impressive mentions on the list. Ed Sheeran went from playing dirty old bars to selling out Wembley Stadium. Good on him.
Even after a relatively quiet year for Gaga, she can still say she's the tenth highest paid musician in the world.
It's no surprise to see Diddy - who has his fingers in many pies - on the top earners list.
JT earned big this year not only thanks to his 59 tour dates, but also because of endorsement deals with Bud Light and Sony.
Calvin Harris earns the top spot as the highest paid DJ of 2015 and is it any wonder? The Scottish DJ regularly pulls in 6 figures for his gigs. However, he didn't earn as much as his other half...
Taylor Swift was the fourth highest paid musician of the year, largely due to her 1989 world tour where she earned £2 million per city.
1D earned more than any other band this year and bar one artist, more than any other musician at all.
Most of her huge $135 million figure is down to Perry's epic 17-month 'Prismatic' world tour - she played a total of 126 dats, grossing £1.3 million in every city she played in.
