Calvin Harris is the only DJ to place in the Sunday Times Rich List

music news 18/05/2020

Calvin Harris has been named the 16th wealthiest artist in the UK, and is the only DJ to make the cut. 

The list names 1,000 of the richest people in Britain across every industry. Harris ranks at number 16 in the music industry list, with an estimated wealth of £180 million ($366.8 million NZD) which is definitely nothing to scoff at. It’s nothing compared to the number one wealthiest across all industries though - Sri and Gopi Hinduja and their family, who are worth a whopping  £22 billion ($44.8 billion NZD). 

Harris regularly appears on Forbes’ annual highest-paid DJ list, so his placing on the Sunday Times Rich List is hardly a surprise. But he is the only DJ to make the music section which is an accomplishment in itself. 

Andrew Lloyd Webber (£800 million) and Paul McCartney top the music list, with Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, and Adele also placing at £468 million, £200 million, and £150 million, respectively.

Keep up the solid work for dance music Calvin, we appreciate you.
