“The rise of dance music has been astronomical… I happened to be in the right place at the right time,” Harris told Forbes.

Harris was followed by French DJ David Guetta ($37 million), who plays in Las Vegas and Ibiza and was one of the headliners at this year’s Coachella Festival in southern California.

Dutch DJ Tiesto came in third with $36 million, while Americans Skrillex and Steve Aoki rounded out the Top 5, tying with $24 million apiece.

Forbes estimated earnings from music, endorsements and other fields for the 12 months ending June 1, 2015 to compile the list.

EDM has been one of the fastest-growing genres in music around the world and was crowned at the 2012 Grammy Awards when EDM was given its own stage at the annual music industry ceremony.
