Capital XTRA In The Morning With Jez Welham 6am - 10am
Check out who nabbed the top spot on this years ranking of the world's top earning electronic cash kings.
The German producer is no stranger to crafting chart-topping hits, including this years 'Stay' featuring Alessia Cara. His six-figure nightly fee per DJ gig also adds to his yearly intake.
He may be the youngest on this years list, but Martin Garrix is already proving himself as somewhat of an EDM icon. As well as producing massive tunes with Dua Lipa and Bebe Rexha, Garrix has performed over 120 shows in the last year, making him most of his money.
Mask-wearing DJ-producer Marshmello joins the list for the first time this year, earning big bucks on the road from his regular live shows. An independent artist, he also makes serious cash from merchandise.
Veteran DJ Guetta is still earning most of his millions from various club shows all over the globe, jetting from Ibiza to Las Vegas. An international crowd pleaser, the producer remains as popular on the festival circuit as he did a decade ago.
Diplo continues to cash in on the ever-growing sub-genre Tropical House which he helped spread across the charts. Often performing side-by-side with his supergroup Major Lazer, or Jack Ü teammate Skrillex, the American DJ also earns six figures per gig.
Clocking in an astonishing 200 plus shows over the last 12 months, there's no denying that Steve Aoki definitely earns his dollar. As well as producing smash hits alongside Louis Tomlinson and Migos, Aoki also holds lucrative deals with brands like T-Mobile and ANA Airlines.
Where Skrillex was once commonly known for popularising Dubstep, the American super-producer has conquered the charts - and the hearts of fans all over the world - by further pioneering another electronic sub-genre, Tropical House, with a little help from Justin Bieber.
The EDM pop-duo make their debut on the list thanks to their non-stop touring schedule and their penchant for churning out infectious top hits like 'Closer' and 'Paris'. The pair have also signed a three-year deal for a residency at Wynn Nightlife in Las Vegas.
Netherlands native Tiësto is no stranger to the Electronic Cash Kings list, continuing to rake in mind-blowing amounts of money from countless shows whilst charging six figures a night.
He's done it again! The Scottish DJ top the list for his fifth consecutive year thanks to his six-figure fees for his Las Vegas performances and seven-figures for music festival appearances. Music-wise, Harris is the cross-over king, producing hits alongside artists including Katy Perry, Frank Ocean, Pharrell Williams and more.
