How much DJ’s make ? December 18, 2006

Posted by DJ X | FADER in Uncategorized.


while i was watchin’ tiesto concert on BPM TV, a question came to my mind.. with all the work, publicity, hectic travelling schedules .. does it really pay off .. well accordin’ to lotus magazine december’s issue :

Top 10 Dj’s: $15,000 – $150,000
Internationally Recognized: $10,000 – $25,000
Nationally Recognized: $4,000 – $6,000
Locally Recognized: $1,000 – 3,000
Local: $0 – $1,000
Bedroom: $0 – $100

so its not that bad after all for international DJ’s(i remember tiesto asking 150,000 for a particular event in Greece) but for bedroom DJ’s like me who cant spin records full time due to study .. its more of a “love for the game” than making money .. even though i remember making 450$ a night three years in a row for DJ’ying at the Gala events at Carleton Uinversity a while ago..

im out…

that was one sick night,, in Carleton Gala..

if u wanna make money , u have to take chances,, i remember they asked u to Dj in China White back in the days,,

Do u remember the boat cruise night, it was a blast,,

keep one thing in mind,, no one starts on the top of the world, $450 a night in Ottawa is good money,,

is this how much these Dj’s make ?? and is this per year or per event ?? cuz they travel everyday ..
