Forbes‘ annual list of the highest paid DJs has been released for 2016, and we can’t say much of it is a surprise.

Calvin Harris maintains his spot at number 1 for the fourth consecutive year with $63 million a year. Tiesto trailed behind at 2nd place with $38 million a year and David Guetta at 3rd place with $28 million.

Deadmau5, Afrojack, and Avicii, who were all in last year’s top 10 did not make the cut this year. Check out the full list below!

Interesting to note this is the first time since 2012 that the overall class netted less (by 1%) than the previous year. Is the EDM bubble bursting?!
